Direct tv Company Name Spoofing

I was contacted supposed from ATT/Direct TV (888) 749-5611 offering a 2 yr fixed price for Direct TV (all channels, etc) for $89.99/mo. Caller stated that EBay was partnering with DirectTV on this promotion and underwriting it. To take advantage of the offer I would need to pay $360 up front via ebay gift card to cover the first 4 months of hte promotion – would not be billed again until the 5th month. He told me to go to any walgreen/cvs etc to purchase the ebay care (if need could be split into 2 cards, $200 & $160). I was told to call back once I got the ebay gift cards and give him promotion code DTV24589. If I tood care of this before 7:00 p.m. today (1/10/20) I’d also receive a $100 visa gift card.I called DirectTV at 800-directv to inquire and confirmed that this id DEFINITELY a scam. DirecTV DOESNOT call thier customers with promotional offers ever. She put notes on Goggle to alert others that it is a scam as well as notified the appropriate department.
