AT&T COR DF *Fraud*

I was issued a fraud detection on a transaction of $1079.96 from something called "AT&T COR DF". I've never had an AT&T account. Has anyone else experienced this? Or any other stories of fraud going around with "AT&T" account charging the funds.

When you say "issued a fraud detection" are you saying your bank alerted you to a potential fraudulent transaction?

Yes. It was my business bank account debit card. I received a text message from Chase bank that said "Fraud Alert" and asking if I authorized the transaction. I said no and the transaction was declined, card cancelled, and a new card is being issued. 

But is this something that happens from time to time? Should I report something to AT&T? Is there other actions I should take? I'm assuming this is some form of identity theft or could this not be AT&T at all?

Fraud is rampant to everyone everywhere....From utilities to credit cards.  Someone gained access to your CC information.  I had a friend who had her identity stolen and battled fraudulent transactions for over a year. 

Contact the bank and see what their advice is.  It will probably involve cancelling that credit card and opening a new one.

Same thing happened to me today. Got a CC spending alert(I choose to get an alert each time card is used), have never had a AT&T account. Purchase from "AT&T COR DF" That's how I ended up here.

Called the CC cust service right away and they cancelled card. I watch my cards like a hawk, good thing I do.

I recently ordered a phone off AT&T and put my card info in and it was taken by “ AT&T cor df “ and now my order says it’s on hold because the payment got declined.  But on my transactions it says it went through. Any solution?

Yes. We have AT&T wireless and internet. Noticed two charges for identical amounts (under $100) on credit card. Transactions state "AT&T COR DF" and are dated on the same day we bought a new phone on AT&T website. Think fraudsters are realizing that smaller amounts do not trigger fraud alerts. But you would think the banks algorithms would detect multiple charges in the same amount as suspicious.

I was recently alerted to a fraudulent charge on my debit card for $1200. My card was immediately canceled, however 3 other fraudulent purchases had already gone through, roughly $3000 total, all to AT&T in some form... the series of numbers after the AT&T were different in each purchase

Those are transaction number. Someone got access to your credit card and are purchasing likely phones from AT&T.

I guess the ways they got access to my card are endless, but is there a way to track who it is based on any of the numbers? One of the charges was a 'bill payment'

Me too I called my bank. They refunded my $238.38 back into my account and I will be getting a new debit card ASAP

It seems I have a slightly different nuance to other comments. I purchased a phone this morning from the ATT website, received the fraud text, and responded yes. The weird difference is I now have two charges, not identical, one for $497.54 which is the correct charge and another for $460.09. No idea what the $460.09 is. ATT cannot find the charge. On DM with someone now and spent and hour on the phone earlier. Not sure what to do.
