Direct TV/Ebay SCAM!

I was contacted from and asked to provide $200 Ebay Card for discounts and promotions.............. Sounded fraudulent so I checked this forum and found info from others who also felt they were being scammed. They even sent the offer in an email that looked so legit. This was today April 27, 2020.

Include is a copy of the email they sent.

I actually never bought the gift cards or paid them, but to "prove" who they were, they actually active Starz and Showtime on my TV and credited back my last payment to my ATT/DirectTv account!!  HOW could they do that??  I am sorry, but, to me, that means ATT/DirectTV DOES have some responsibility here!
