They’re targeting us…

The phishing scams are back. This one is better than most, but it’s definitely fake. This phish was reported to us with the HTML written in plain text, so I’ve recreated the email minus the gibberish and plus the formatting. First, the email opens with a...

More AT&T scams

So do you remember the last time vishers paid us a visit? They’re at it again. I got a call from 800-970-2089 trying to direct me to www.yougoatt.com for a “free” $100. Yeah. Free money. Also comes with free malware. This call is another reminder...

Vishing for AT&T Customers

I just got an interesting phone call. The caller ID showed me 800 number – (800) 344-3089 – telling me that I had just won $200. That’s pretty sweet. I could use some money. Sadly, this seems like a vishing scam; we’ve previously discussed similar...
