2052872786 ATT Unsuccessful Payment Scam

Do not call 205-287-2786. This is because the fake "AT&T Unsuccessful Payment" text message below, which asks recipients to call telephone number 205-287-2786, is a scam. The scam, which claims the recipients' payment was unsuccessful or is on hold, is being sent by scammers who are attempting to steal their potential victims' personal and financial information by asking them to call fake AT&T telephone number 205-287-2786.

    I got the same text at 3:58 AM this morning. I don't know where to report it to AT&T. Thanks for exposing it as a scam.

  • August 16, 2020 at 12:36 PM by an anonymous user from: Mobile, Alabama, United States

    I received this text message on August 16, 2020 at 7:56am Central Daylight Time. I did not call the number, but instead called AT&T. My account had been paid and I learned this was a scam.

  • August 16, 2020 at 11:38 AM by an anonymous user from: Italy

    I got it at 5:43 am, one AT&T line and another on an MVNO AT&T operated line. Did not call back knowing both accounts had already been paid this month.

    Seems like someone is phishing all the AT&T cell numbers in our area of AL, hoping for a bite.

  • August 16, 2020 at 10:47 AM by an anonymous user from: Atlanta, Georgia, United States

    Received the same txt, checked my account, changed some security

    Questions and reported it! People are crazy

    I got a text at 7:34am on 8/16/20 telling me my AT&T payment was unsuccessful. I had recently changed to a different card for automatic payments so for a moment I thought I entered something wrong. When I saw the number they told me to call, which had a 205 area code, I knew it was a scam. That's one of the area codes here in Alabama.

  • August 16, 2020 at 10:09 AM by an anonymous user from: Birmingham, Alabama, United States

    Received two SCAM texts on my cellphone stating the text was from AT&T stating I had made an unsuccessful payment. The text asked me to call 2052870227. The text ended with "MSG 6580".

    THANKFULLY I googled the phone number and learned that the phone number was a SCAM. Safe, and not sorry worked for me.

  • August 16, 2020 at 9:35 AM by an anonymous user from: Tuscaloosa, Alabama, United States

    Concerned because all lines on our family plan received the same message today. Has ATT been hacked or did everyone in Alabama get the same message at the same time?

  • August 16, 2020 at 9:24 AM by an anonymous user from: Tuscaloosa, Alabama, United States

    I upgraded my cell phone through ATT on August 14, 2020, and got this text message of payment failure this morning, August 16. My reaction is that they got the info through ATT or the company that was set up in the Sams store to sell cell phones. It certainly needs to be investigated.

  • August 16, 2020 at 9:06 AM by an anonymous user from: United States

    I got this AT&T message yesterday and ignored it. Don't even have an AT&T account.

  • August 16, 2020 at 8:53 AM by an anonymous user from: Trussville, Alabama, United States

    SCAM for money! Called here at 8:00

  • August 16, 2020 at 8:31 AM by an anonymous user from: Mobile, Alabama, United States

    Got text at 8:04am telling me my AT&T payment failed, and to call 205-287-2786. By the other posters looks like South Alabama is being targeted by these criminals today. Deleted text and will try to contact AT&T tomorrow. Looks like if the criminals/scammers are using AT&T text services, they could block these turds.

  • August 16, 2020 at 8:12 AM by an anonymous user from: Decatur, Alabama, United States

    Got a text at 6am today stating ATT payment unsuccessful. Wants me to call 205-287-2786. I knew it was a scam from this phone number they want you to call. Not calling.

  • August 16, 2020 at 8:12 AM by an anonymous user from: Mobile, Alabama, United States

    Just received this text at 3:43 this morning. I didn't call them.

  • August 16, 2020 at 5:05 AM by an anonymous user from: Leighton, Alabama, United States

    I got the message about 12:00 a.m. but I don't use a debit card or credit card. I use at&t phone cards

  • August 16, 2020 at 1:53 AM by an anonymous user from: Tuscaloosa, Alabama, United States

    I got a text at 1:30 a.m. telling me that my AT&T payment failed and to call 205-287-2786. When I called that number, the recording said my debit card had been cancelled. I hung up at that point.

    • August 16, 2020 at 3:40 AM by an anonymous user from: Semmes, Alabama, United States

      We just received it also. Didn’t call them back though.

      • August 16, 2020 at 4:14 AM by an anonymous user from: Atlanta, Georgia, United States

        I got the text at 4:01 a.m. and I didn't call. I did check my bill balance through AT&T's built in phone contact and my bill was paid.

        • August 16, 2020 at 8:14 AM by an anonymous user from: Mobile, Alabama, United States

          I received the text at 7:52 a.m. and did not call back. I don't have a balance at this time so I suspected that it was a scam.
