With phishing, a scammer pretends to be a different person or from an organization. They try to trick you into sharing personal or financial details. This may include credit card numbers, social security numbers, or passwords.
Be cautious of texts or emails asking for your personal, account, or credit card info. If you get such a request, report it to AT&T Internet Security at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also forward the phishing email to the Anti-Phishing Working Group at email@example.com or report it to the Federal Trade Commission.
Scammers constantly change their attacks to include details that make you believe the scam is real.
