Yes. The link goes to weeblysite dot com, what ever that is. Just delete and ignore, and don't click on the link.

Hi there, @escolvert! We want to help clear some things up about the email you received. 

 

Thank you, @OttoPylot for your help!

 

If you suspect that an email is fake or wasn't sent by AT&T, we recommend reviewing our article that discusses how to identify and report fake emails. There, you'll also have access to examples of fake AT&T emails to check out, along with a host of things you can do to protect your information.

 

There are several warning signs you should look for when it comes to identifying malicious emails. Let's take a look at a few of them:

  • Make odd claims about your bill. They may say that a bill is ready, an account needs to be verified, or a payment needs to be confirmed. These emails often include a link to sign in to your account. Don’t click on the link..
  • Ask for personal or account info.
  • Include links to non-AT&T websites. Hover over the links in the email to see the true destination website. A malicious site may try to mimic the look of an AT&T website. AT&T isn’t affiliated with these links. These are dangerous websites.
  • Include attachments. AT&T bills don't include attachments. Fake attachments will be in .zip format and may have names that start with ATT_Payment.

If you do believe and email is malicious, we've got some steps that you can take right away to report it: 

  1. Review the email carefully. Don’t click any links or download any attachments. 
  2. Report the email, using one of these options:
    • On currently.com: Select the Spam button in the toolbar above the message. This will also remove the email from your inbox.
    • In an email program: Forward the email to AT&T at abuse@att.net. When possible, include the full email header to help us identify the origins of the email.
  3. Delete the email, if it hasn’t already been removed from your inbox.

Please feel free to reach back out if you need help in the future. Thank you for contacting the AT&T Community Forums!
