AT&T Says Text Message Is A Hoax

If you're an AT&T Wireless customer you probably received an unusual text message Friday.

The text was similar to a chain e-mail letter offering customers a $60 credit if they forwarded the message to 10 other people. The problem is that it was all a prank.

AT&T tells us they did not authorize the spam text message and are calling it a hoax. Heather Clary with the Better Business Bureau says as technology evolves so do the scams.

AT&T says if you did receive the text message just delete it. We're told no accounts were compromised because of the hoax. AT&T did tell us standard text rates will apply to the message so you could be out some money if you do not have an unlimited text plan.
