The links from the message lead to a website that attempts to trick the victim into handing over his/her AT&T Wireless account login credentials.
The domain initially involved in the scam is determindedolympus.com, but it appears to have been removed. However, this doesn’t mean it’s the end of this campaign since the cybercrooks that run it can easily register a new one.
Users are advised to avoid clicking on links from shady-looking messages purporting to come from AT&T or any other wireless carrier.
