Ebay card to pay for 3 months

I’ve been offered if I pay 3 months of phone in advance they will cut my phone bill in 1/2 got 24 months. I had to put the amount and an eBay card.  Call AT&T and give them the numbers.  I see that two years ago this has happened. 

So glad I looked up for this scam, it did sound like a great deal... too great. And to have to pay through ebay card?!

They called thw wrong person... not a sucker!

You don't.  That's why they ask for gift cards,

common sense tells you a billion dollar company has no use for gift cards

Late 2021, Been getting a lot of calls for service discounts/software upgrades lately. sometimes they give me an address to send glitter I mean payments, other times they ask for credit card info,  today was gift cards. Not even an AT&T or Direct TV customer. I'll play along give fake info and ask why my receiver box is starting to smoke.

Been trying to remove my information from various reverse phone number services since scammers are using them to identify victims by name, address and such.

LOL.  Might as well have fun at their expense.  I got fake irs call years ago. The caller wanted me to wire the money. I insisted I did not know how to wire money but I did know where the IRS office was and I would bring the money to them.  Played the dumb blond chick and dragged it out. 

He got so mad he called me some really disgusting things and hung up

I got a call today with the CID showing a local school district.  I answered out of curiosity and it was the infamous call offering to lower my "DirecTV or Uverse bill".
