    He offered a 50% promotional offer from AT&T/Direct TV partnering with Best Buy. Bill cut in half for 2 yrs ( 24 months), but first 3 months I had to pay full price up front. The catch was the first 3 months I had to pay with Best Buy prepaid cards.

    Scammers. Once you are asked to pay with prepaid cards, it is a scam.

    The scammer called (initially from 888-879-1756 number) my father, who is over 70 years old, and offered to give him a 50% discount on Direct TV service. They offered to also include several premium movie channels like HBO, Cinemax, Star, Showtime & American Hero for free. They required him to first go to Kroger, Wal-mart, or any retail store and buy 3 E-bay gift cards for $200 a piece ($600 total).

    Then he was told to call 888-879-1281 & give the numbers on the face of the gift cards to the rep on the phone. My father felt that this was odd and called me. We called the number he was given and I asked questions about this promotion. The rep wanted me to give him my telephone number and when I wouldn't he quickly and abruptly ended the call. I believe this was someone trying to make money from my father fraudulently. Please check into this so no one falls victim to this scam. Thank you.

    Called the number back that called. Answered with a recording that asked to press a # for the dept. you wanted. Promotions was connected to me, Guy told me that I would get reduced monthly bills. I had to pay with eBay gift cards, because AT&T partner with them to promote the offer tha their gift cards. Sounded good. Gave me a list of the stores close to me that had eBay cards. Got $500 in ebay cards from Rouses, called the number got a different call center person. He said before he took the card numbers, he wanted to make sure that the channels were added. Turned on TV, Showtime had been added, so has additional channels. Said OK now he would take the numbers on the cards. Hung up. Later I got a text saying there was problem with eBay. He would reimburse these cards, get 3 larger denomination and call back. I should have stopped there,but got taken for another $480... Of course these numbers would not go into the system would send a check to reimburse, but would need more cards. NOW! the light finally dawned on me. SCAM. Checked with ATT and changed pin and security code. Showtime had been added, They removed it and flaged my account. Just feel stupid!

    Called from 855-705-0708 claiming to give 50% off Directv for either 3 years @$83.99 monthly after buying a Best Buy Prepaid GiftCard for $420.00 upfront prepayment for 5 months, then $83.99 for the rest of 31 months. if I paid the upfront $420.00 with the Prepaid Best Buy Card on the same day, then I was eligible for a $150.00 Visa Card.

    They even sent an email to my Hotmail account, detailing this offer, from info@ dtvpromotionsdepartment.com, on a letterhead looking like the home page of AT&T, with further details available by calling the billing and promotions department (855) 705-0708 ext. 1... To ensure email delivery add directv@directv.com & directv@cm.directv..com

    A guy or a female calls and says I am eligible for up grades or 50% off service fees. When you confront them they hang up.

    I have let it go to voice mail and call back. It is not the AT&T music so you know it is a fraud. I spoke with one man at one time who kept saying that he is in Dallas at their office and he could reduce my bill. He asked for my account and when I said he called me and offered the deal in the beginning, he should have all of that. If you confront them, they hang up.

    Trying to convince me to go to outlet stores to purchase 2 Best Buy gift cards. Load one with $500 and another with $334. I drove to 5 different retailers who AT&T DirecTV said offered Best Buy gift cards. Finally found the Best Buy gift cards at a Post Office. But, they would only load a total of $500 on a gift card a day. So, after all of that nothing. Went home, DirecTV called asking why I had not activated the 2 gift cards. I told them the Post Office would not let me do that. And they said, "Go, back lie to them. Tell them it is for personal use!" When I refused they said they were going to add $200 to my next AT&T bill! I told them at least 10 times I was done. I was not going forward with this promotion. It is a scam. Then, they got very aggressive. Passed me to the "manager" who said, "If I did not secure the gift cards for $834 he was going to increase my bill by $200 and the original telemarketer I spoke with will have to pay the $834 out of his pocket. When that didn't work I was passed to a "supervisor" who was screaming at me, said he would send me a $150 gift card and lower my bill. When I refused, he threatened me saying I lied and AT&T DirecTV will sue me for damages! I hung up, but for the past 2 days they call every 15 minutes.

    They called and left a message that I could receive a discount on my Direct TV monthly bill. I had called Direct TV about getting my bill reduced for being a loyal customer (I have gotten one before and it had expired) their response was that there weren't any offers available at this time and to check back with them. Approximately a week later I received that message to call this number for a great discount on my Direct TV account. I called, their answering service it sounded like a genuine AT&T answering service with the music notes before a voice says, "Thank you for calling AT&T Direct TV how can I help you today?"

    I said why I calling and I was connected with a representative. It was 50% off my bill for 2 years and no contract, but they would have to have the first 6 months ahead of time. It had to be paid with an eBay gift card by calling the billing office at *** *** within 24 hours.

    Call AT&T directly and ask them if there is such a promotion.
