BRYAN, Tex. (KBTX) - AT&T is warning its customers in the 979 area
code about a scam hitting the Brazos Valley.

Company representative Austin Higginbotham called News 3 to spread the
word of this scam, which he said happens often but is peaking in the
979 area code this week.

Higginbotham said your mobile phone will receive a call from what
appears be a local number, possibly even your exact number. If you
answer, Higginbotham warns that a scammer posing as an AT&T employee
will ask you to verify personal information about your account.
