just wanted to mention if any one reads this
i got same call same number,
+44 8000 000 000
ithink it is from telemarketing from overseas (phillipines or india)??
Comes in on my phone as UNKNOWN - But from what I am reading I am in the same boat as you guys.
The message I get is half cut off each time, 2-3 times a day. It says "log into your AT&T account now to claim you ($200-950) award"
I knew it had to be a scam as the dollar amount just kept changing with each call. My only issue is if it is a scam why would they simply ask me to call AT&T over and over? Would it be funny to someone to have people calling to ask? Also, it appears 100's of thousands are getting these calls each day.
Got two calls today and a woman left a bad voice mail each time about a $23 reward from AT&T (apparently the scammer has lowered his/her expectations). Shows up as "unknown" and not the 800 number. I also get daily calls from area codes 207 and 979. Calls back to these numbers reach numbers not in service.
Is this possibly the registrant? I know the voice mail sounds like a man.
I don't wanna put my name so,JAMES BOND
I've also been getting the same calls almost everyday but the number is always different!
They hit me today from 800-130-6357 for att120.com , same sh*t they are doing to everyone else. i.e. Directs you to login to a site that has att*** and whatever the dollar amount they refer to in message, aka just domain alias' that point you to the same site/landing page no matter what.
(800) 265-2979 same scam offering $500 at the same site! Disgusting att should be all up into this fraud!
get 2-3 calls a day from 1800*******.... number changes every time. i did get a 1 week break between the 250 and 800 off next months at&t bill... havent had at&t for well over 10 years. i called at&t they said they have no promotions or anything (which i all ready had guessed) and i asked if them to forward the information on to their legal department. this is the most annoying thing on the planet.
That's not AT&T. That's a scam. AT&T will NEVER give you $200. If they did, it would be put towards your bill as a credit ONLY in extreme cases, like your bill being incorrect.
This is a phone number used by many different companies, because it cost money to buy a phone number to call out. Not all are scammers, but you should be careful. The DNC list doesn't matter anymore. You can be angry and upset all you want, but you can't do anything. You can't sue, because you don't have enough info and don't really know who is calling you. So, go ahead, puff out your chest and roar. It won't do any good. You are helpless. Do not waste your time asking to be put on the DNC list. If you don't answer, they will eventually stop calling. So- suck it up. Put on your big girl panties and DEAL WITH IT! Quit crying and complaining because "It's wrong! They're annoying me!" You sound like children. What's worse is the way I am SURE most of you treat customer service. The aren't stupid. They know more about what you are asking about than you do. NO! You can't get your way all the time. America is a nation, of spoiled, overprivileged, snot-nosed brats, and I am so sorry you do not get your way.
i keep getting a phone call from a different 1800 number every time about once a day telling me to collect an ATT rebate of a few hundred dollars. how do i make it stop??
I keep getting this 1-800...call that is telling me to collect $200 from at&t and logon to get the money.
Received a miss call from 800-000-0000. Did not answer and a voice mail was not left. Thanks to all who shared this was an AT&T scam. $450 off our bills? I wish!
Got a call just a minute ago, answered and there was no answer, just music. Hope I didn't paid a penny for this tho.
Yes to me too with an iPhone and a new Verizon account. The # showed up without any zeroes and just "800" so Being at 12:40 in the morning I was 1/2 asleep and thought it was seriously from Verizon. A robot woman said "Important, your account has been hacked and personal information is at risk. Press 1 for Internal Security department" so I do and it hung up on me. Has this version happened to anybody else too? I never got these calls with my Droid Razr and now I get a TON with a phone number that I haven't given out yet. :(
I've been receiving these calls from different 1800 numbers 3-4 times a day saying AT&T owes me anywhere from $100-1000 for my next bill. I keep blocking each number, but it doesn't matter they just keep calling. Anything I can do to make this stop??? Getting close to just changing my damn number again.
I keep getting these messages too!! These calls are using up my minutes!! How do you get them to stop calling?? I tried to call back the phone# that came up on my phone, but it said it can not be reached!! What the$%&@! FRUSTRATING!!!
"At At&t, we care about you, thank you and have a nice day"
I am getting these calls everyday, twice a day from different numbers showing up on the I.D, att100.com att250.com att450.com att500.com... But how do you stop this!!!, when its a different number every time, sometimes even using local area code instead of 1-800...

Thank you Leet Hax0r
People like you make the world a better place.
Got a call, total scam, decided to have some fun.
Hacked his godaddy account.
Ran up $251.64 hosting charge on his Visa credit card ending 2733. I did this a few times actually, finally hit a max at $1200, so his credit is not very good or he would have had a higher limit.
Here is his billing address:
Faubrichio Billini (must be an italian guy with poor credit)
3312 Byron Road (probably the mobile home )
Green Cove Springs, FL 32043
Godaddy Customer id: 80567005
Password I set it to: Newuser123
Pin Set to be 1478
I wouldn't call, Godaddy locked the account and Google marked the site as phishing. I deleted the website just to make sure nobody else go scammed...
His username was bulldingskyn
He used an anon email so I couldn't go further.
If you listen carefully, the message says, "you have been awarded $x.xx TO BE DEDUCTED FROM YOUR NEXT MONTH'S BILL."
800 131 3425 has called me countless and left a message to log into Att website to collect my $500 reward.
Phone # was actually 800-169-4510
Just got a call stating that I just won a customer appreciation certificate from AT & T in the amount of $500. I just had to go to www.attfidelity.com to get my voucher.
It sounded phishy to me - so I googled it, and found this comment forum. Thanks so much for hosting this.
att calls fake
i've gotten 2 of those messages in the past 2 days however they're not the 000-0000 number. they're (800) 183-2440 and (800) 166-3148.
Keep receiving same robo calls but with different 1-800 numbers each time. Really annoying
Received 3 messages from 'AT&T' to collect first $300, then $320, and now $1,000 definite scam according to the above!
Forward info to AT+T (firstname.lastname@example.org) and let them investigate. Maybe they can shut down his operation. These calls are now coming into my cell phone daily, even twice a day.
Rcvd 2 calls from "at&t one said 200.00 the other was for 320.00 when searching for site found this forum, glad i found this 1st
