I just got a email saying "You recently deleted your Mobile Internet account." but I haven't made ANY changes to my account, so what's going on here!?

Just for reference, yes, I checked to make sure it was the actually from t-mobile. It's the same no-reply address I always get from them. I want to know how and what has been changed/deleted on my account when I didn't do anything!

You may be the victim of a "port out" fraud. Do you know if your account had a port out PIN? A port out fraud is a way for criminals to gain control of your cellular number in order to be able to validate password changes to bank accounts, etc. Have you set up your account login on T-Mobile.com? If not, I'd call customer service.

Unless you look at all the e-mail headers you won't be able to tell a bogus e-mail from a real one. I suggest you surf over to T-Mobile.com and log into your account but UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES​ should you click on any links in the e-mail.

I already checked everything, it's a legit email as far as I can tell. My spouse got the exact same one. I was hoping someone had an idea what this is about. Why did we get these emails, claiming that WE had done something to our accounts when we have not? I really didn't need the extra stress of this, right at the beginning of the month, especially right now.

Just received an exact same email. I called T-Mobile (611) and the rep told me to disregard the email after verifying my account has not been tampered with and no changes has been applied. Seems like a scam but then it looks legit with no links to click and the correct T-Mobile support number.

I got the same message last night and so did my daughter.  no links to click on.  But we both are getting messages on our phones that we don’t have a data plan.  They don’t work without wifi.  I was on the phone with tbmobile for 2 hours last night, just left the store and they can’t figure it out. 

I received the same message and after over an hour of worrying and searching, I found that it was not my regular phone account but rather a “free 200mb for life” plan that I had on an old iPad.  My new one doesn’t have a sim so I haven’t used the account in over a year. This message is very poor customer relations on the part of T-mobile! They should at least include the number for the account so people don’t panic about their phones!
