Anyone get an email from T-Mobile regarding a breach?
Posted by: RAMd®d

I got an email yesterday with the subject line:

Please Read! Important information about your T-Mobile Prepaid account

and addressed to Dear Customer.

These are two red flags for a Gone Phishing, but the sender's address (hovering over T-Mobile) is news @ t-mobile-email.com.

So I sent it to T-Mo asking them "Is this legit" and got a reply telling me lots of stuff but whether it is or not.

The only account I have with them is the free 250MB per month SIM, which I'm going to drop because it's near useless, and keeps me from being eligible for various T-Mo offers.

So— did anyone else get one of these, and do you know if it's genuine?





Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

When T-Mobile took over Sprint, I started getting lots of texts like that. This was before I put their SIMS in my phones. I wouldn't trust any kind of communique from them without going into a T-Mobile store to verify (or call them).

I got one and ignored it.

Years ago we had 3 prepaid T-Mobile lines and we also had 2 iPads that had free T-Mobile data from a very early generation of iPads. We sold those a couple of years ago without the T-Mobile sims and hadn't used the data in years; I think it expired when I didn't use it. I just figured the email was related to one of those. We are currently T-Mobile postpaid and got an email and did all of the changes we needed to do from the breach.

I didn't get an email, they sent me a text. I have one of their post-paid unlimited plans.

I got the email today. Looked legit to me. It says to call a toll free number to change a PIN. I have the "free 250MB/month" plan on a SIM in my old iPad 3. Haven't used it for years. My wife has/had the same deal, but they sent her an email a month or so ago saying they were going to discontinue it because she hadn't used it for a long time. I figured they would do the same for me.

I actually sort of have it on another iPad I bought at a garage sale. Someone sold me a 64GB iPad Air for $5 at a garage sale a couple of months ago, and it has a SIM in it. Haven't tried to see if the SIM works yet or not.

I got the warning from my 55+ account with T-Mobile. Upon their recommendation, I installed the McAfee Security app on my phone but have not registered an account there. I get periodic messages telling me that such and such wireless network meets (or not) their security protocol.
