I’m sure it’s a scam, don’t click on it and block the number

It’s a scam! Delete it!

I received it too but no one else on my plan did so I doubt it's legit.

I received it too from a different number same scam.

 

I also got one but based on the link in the text, it looks like a scam. Don’t click it

All over the Reddit forum: SCAM Delete it

Yep, total scam. One way to tell is more than one typo/misspelling. One is bad enough that it’s very uncommon, but two? Nope. Scam. 

Mine was also from 425-500-6735.

T-mobile should do something about it.

Block the number and delete text message, its a scam!

You should report/forward the spam to T-mobile text to 7726

What happens if you click the link?

A $100 free item 🤔

I got the same. I blocked and deleted it.

This screams “scam” even apart from the typos, the whole scenario is unlikely.   A real offer wouldn’t be “$100 free gift”, it would be something like a credit on your bill, paying $100 for a temporary less than one day outage is far too much, and you don’t want to survey just people who have experienced an outage,   Consider the recent data breach.   That, which was truly serious, got something much less meaningful than $100 “gift”!

 

Finally, those that blocked the sending number, what do you think that achieves.   Almost certainly an innocent spoofed number.

 

 

 

Me as well....Scam?

I received it too and yet T-mobile makes no attempt to inform its hacked customers that this scam, which is obviously using hacked information, is being sent to those customers. They couldn’t careless.
