    This is going all over facebook it seems. Did AT&T get breached? Many I know have been getting calls from AT&T from their own number.

    No... anyone can spoof a number. It’s simple scammers are just spoofing a number they’re calling and pretending to be the provider.

    Most calls are with AT&T customers only. So it is related to just AT&T customers.

    Not sure why it’s just AT&T customers being targeted but is odd unless they want to stick to the same script lol, but you can lookup area codes and prefixes to all the numbers that AT&T owns easily. They could start at 801-0001, 801-0002 and so on.

    Just had this happen to me. Called ID was my mobile number. Wanted me to enter last four of SSN. Instantly knew it was a scam as I have a business account. Audio was bad, didn’t sound like any of the usual AT&T automated voices they use.

    Happened to me about a couple months ago, but I never answered the phone. Never happened again. I know that you could probably spoof a phone number through a digital PRI circuit. Depends mostly on the PBX’s capabilities.

    ATT wasn't breached per se, but they utilized equifax for credit reporting. This wasn't associated with your spam calling, but just to answer your question yes your information was potentially exposed with the help of ATT utilizing Equifax.
