The Vermilion Parish Sheriff’s Office is warning of a new scam involving scammers posing as AT&T customer service representatives.

According to a release from VPSO, the scammer advises the customer that it appears someone has attempted to, or has already hacked their account and that they are in need of changing their information.

Investigators stat that the scammer then sends a “CODE” to the customer, asking the customer to confirm the “CODE”. This gives the scammer access to your account.

VPSO says that if you are fearful that someone has accessed your account, contact your AT&T customer relations personnel via the company and speak to an actual customer service representative.
