Everything You Need to Know About ATT Email Fraud Reporting

AT&T is the most popular telecommunications company in the world. As it happens with any other company with millions of subscribers/clients, AT&T email frauds occur frequently, since many malicious senders pretend to be the company. 

Phishing emails are not only bothersome, but they can also be potentially dangerous and trick you into losing a lot of money.

How to Recognize an ATT Spam Email

You should know how to recognize fake AT&T emails, in order to report email abuse and keep your inbox safe.

The majority of email providers do have filters that recognize spam emails and store them into the Spam folder right away. These filters don’t always work flawlessly, and that’s why your primary inbox can be exposed to spam and phishing emails.

Here’s how to tell if the email you received is fake:

  • You received bill notices without your account number—the real AT&T will always list the account number
  • Links in the email redirect to other (non-AT&T) websites—if the email you receive has a link that doesn’t take you to the AT&T website, the email is probably spam
  • The email includes attachments in .zip format—AT&T almost never includes attachments, especially in .zip format
  • There are strange alerts regarding your bill—if the email says you need to confirm something “urgently”, do not do it because it’s probably a fraud
  • The sender asks you to send your account info—do not do it, it’s most likely scam

If you notice any of these signs, report the email immediately and delete it. Even if none of the signs are there, but you still consider the email suspicious, don’t click on any link or attachment, don’t respond, and report spam email.
