So far this has been the most helpful site with assurance I wasn't the only one.I'm suspicious that this happened because I changed my address online with USPS. If you do, don’t click on links in the text message.And normally messages from sprint don't come from a seven digit phone number. I received one with him suggesting I use Ever to store photos. I was checking the message to see if anything was suspicious I should've noticed immediately being that it was an unrecognized number but, I continued to download to see if it wasn't a picture from someone I know.once the download was complete the message deleted itself and I've yet to find out what was downloaded even after looking through my downloads which were empty and still empty after the fact.If you didn't authorize any premium text message services, then you will want to file a claim at ftc.gov/att. I didnt enter any information, I just visited the site. But it showed the the message was sent from my sister's phone, which wasn't working at the time. today I received a text from the number unfamiliar to me but with my local area code.
Within 72 hours after you register the number, you will get an email that confirms your registration.I haven't responded, and when I researched it told me it was a customer service platform so I'm rather nervous about the whole thing.I keep deleting the messages but they keep popping up. Please call (973)368-5560" I received a text from a random number which had a link to You Tube, and at the bottom it said "James..." I figured it could've been the person got the wrong phone number but I still clicked on the link (like a dummy). i received a text, today, Dec 3rd at pm stating that I may receive refunds from AT&T for paying for charges from other companies on my bill.When internet fraudsters impersonate a business to trick you into giving out your personal information, it’s called phishing. Yup, just receieved a message from 360-889-8691 and it had my first and last name, address, and a link.Don't reply to email, text, or pop-up messages that ask for your personal or financial information. You can file a complaint about the messages with the ftc at ftc.gov/complaint. (the person that I sent the email doesn't have my phone number? It was my married last name which wasn't officially changed and so mostly everything except like health care is still in my maiden name...website address listed was i wouldn't click on a link if there was one, but with old school flip phone, don't have the option!
If you get another message like this, don’t click on the links in the text message.
