They have been calling me daily, three or four times a day for the last week. I finally answered. Said it was ATT and there is going to be an outage and txt me a pin # then asked for the pin# they just sent me. right on the txt message it says we will never ask you for your pin#. Called ATT, they said probably a scam. I didn't give the pin# and the guy offered to have his "supervisor" call me back. No thanks.

They just called at 11:45 pm on Thanksgiving. I did not pick up but came here to find out what 's going on. It looks like from earlier posts and other reporting sites that we are all going to get hit with a noticeable charge on our next bill and we will have to make our phone company reverse the charge. Watch Your bills this number always means you will get hit with a huge charge. They have been hitting people for up to $50 on our bills since 2007. They are not ATT....They just spoof the ATT number and do quick attacks on our phones before they are shut down. Watch your bill for a new charge and watch your bank statement because people are reporting they have been hit through their checking accounts.

It's a scam. I called AT&T to verify the phone number because apparently my "wireless" account had been suspended but keep in mind I don't have wireless and only have GoPhone(PREPAID). The representative said it was a fraud because AT&T never calls their customers.

Got a call telling me my Verizon account was suspended. (My credit card # was stolen 2 weeks ago and used at a Verizon store...so I thought related.) The recorded voice asked for my pin and last 4 of social. I gave fake numbers; voice said they would call me back in 35" due to volume. I called the number back myself: AT&T. SCAM SCAM SCAM

These people are scammers. Said they were from AT&T calling about my account that was suspended pending verification from me. First, if my account was suspended, how was I able to call? When I connected with a "Representative" the first question I asked was where the AT&T headquarters was located. That's when she got unpleasant with me stating no information would be given to me until I provided my number and account number. At that point, enough was enough and I hung up. BLOCK THIS NUMBER.

Received call from 932-618-1585. There was no answer except for a 'beep' then automated voice said "goodbye" and disconnected. Called number back and incoming calls were not accepted. Message said to call 800-331-0500, which I called and it turned out to be AT&T customer service. I spoke with Mark and he advised no AT&T calls to me had been made and there were no issues with my account. He researched number and determined it was from a number registered to Reliance Communications, Ltd. which I researched further and found same info indicating it was a mobile number with some search results turning up info about India. Bottom line: it's a scam and don't speak with them should a live person reach you.

I didn't give her any personal info including my phone number and only told her the guy had a few numbers mixed up - didn't spell it out. She was nice but I'm going to take her suggestion and go check my call record and see what is shows as the number that called me.

This person called my cell phone twice in a row, first time asking for Consuela. I told him he had wrong number, hung up and phone rang again. He gave me the number he was trying to reach which had the last two digits reversed. He apologized profusely but has me curious the purpose of the call - we've had this cell number 12 years.

Called my son's phone saying his payment didn't go through and asked for updated information. He is NOT the responsible party in this matter. I am thinking that someone/something is able to call your phone from the ATT phone number to make you think it's them (although if I don't have it stored as a contact how would I even know -- it's an 800 number, afterall).

Bottom line is, I called the number back, it rings as ATT has the little tone and everything. I put in my real number it asked me for my password. I hung up. I also called back and spoke to a person this time. She asked for my password too. Sounded very legit. Could really be ATT number.. don't know. But I DO KNOW that my bill is paid up in full as usual, every month.

Something smells PHISHY.

This is an authentic ATT customer service number BUT it is not ATT. They have used an app that cloaks their real number with an ATT number in order to conduct a bogus ATT survey. I was promised a short 1-2 minute survey for a $20 credit. After the survey they got my name and zip code, then asked for the last four digits of my Social Security number for "verification" purposes. I asked why they would need that--they already have our account info. More gobbledygook explanations from the "surveyor." I said no thanks at that point.
Caller had a pronounced Latino accent.
When I called ATT to report this they verified this is their number but it is an incoming customer service number--they never use it for anything like surveys (which are all automated anyway). They are aware of this scam. Others have given up personal info and had their cell phone accounts hacked and hundreds of dollars of charges made. Scary stuff.

Same thing happening to me. I answered and an Indian answered and blurted out a survey telling me if I answered 3 questions I could take money off of my next cell bill. He then asked 3 random questions about customer satisfaction and then for the 'money off' part...he told me I needed to tell him the answer of my 'last name' for 'security purposes'. I told him he called me...HE can tell me my last name because I wasnt buying that he was from AT&T. He guessed the wrong name and then when I told him he made some excuse about his supervisor making a mistake on his list and HUNG UP ON ME! LOL

It must be some sort of SCAM...but AT&T needs to get on this! Ive only been a customer with them for about 2 weeks! I never had calls like this from Verizon when I was with them; but actually they were ripping me off daily....so why would they need scammers?

Here's what to do when you get the call.

Just hang up.

Then call ATT at 800-331-0500 during regular business hours and when prompted to enter your wireless phone number enter 817-688-7853 (assuming this is the cell number that called you). Speak to a customer representative and let them know that the owner of this cell phone account is using their services fraudulently, I believe phishing is illegal, and you just wanted to let them know.

PLEASE, do not abuse the customer service help, thank you. They are just like you and I, so be kind.

If you can't wait, you can contact ATT at their 24/7 technical support call center. Use the same 817 cell phone number when prompted and speak to their customer service.

Repeat, BE KIND! If you're steamed, vent appropriately. The pathetic excuse behind this is not the same person on the phone with you - unless you're a better sleuth than I am.

This effort is simply to EMPOWER you if you wish to take appropriate action, in this case being a bit-o-thorn in the call logs of ATT (in Fort Worth Texas) so they hurry and close this pathetic
