AT&T DirecTV 50% Off Your Bill for 2 Years Scam

Received an automated call today stating they were AT&T DirecTV and were offering me 50% Off My Bill for 2 Years. They said to call 888-302-3201 if I wished to take advantage of the offer. I called and it was an automated system asking me how much I paid on my bill each month, they also ask for your phone number, DirecTV Pass-code and then after waiting for several minutes I was connected to a foreign speaking agent who again asked for my phone number and pass-code, which I gave to them. He then offered me 50% Off My Bill for 2 Years and all the premium channels if I just paid 10 months in advance. I asked how long the offer was good for and he said the next couple days, I said I wasn't going to do it right now, but I might call back later. I asked for him to send me an email with the offer and he said he would, but never received anything. Then I thought oh crap, I just gave them my phone number and DirecTV Pass-code! I figured it was a Scam and then found all kinds of posts in AT&T Forums about a similar Scam. I called DirecTV directly and explained the issue and changed my pass-code. She also told me there is no such deal. Not sure how the scammer was going to get my money, but I never let it go that far to find out. So just a heads up to AT&T DirecTV Subscribers about these ongoing SCAMS and DirecTV will never call you offering you this kind of deal!!!

If you're ever unsure, hang up and call the number yourself...not just for DirecTV, but also for any company you do business with.

BTW: The DirecTV forums have moved and are now at http://forums.directv.com

Mine was very similar, but the phone number was 833-313-2347, they answered ATT Directv and asked for my personal code.  They were able to secure my billing amount and change services on my account.  I call the Standard phone number for ATT/Directv and found they could reverse it and change my personal code.  I went the extra step to change my password as well.  They wanted me to get 4 EBAY cards for a total of $720 at Safeway, the number they gave me to call back was 855.595.8511.  They even said I had the services already, but I didn't. So just a heads up to AT&T DirecTV Subscribers

DirecTV reps shouldn't be answering the phone as AT&T.

Getting eBay (or any) gift cards is a dead giveaway.
