    I just got a phone call from 718-756-4820 Brooklyn, NY; when I tried calling the number back, it said the phone number was no longer in service....so I figured it was so kind of scam...they can call my number but I can't call them back... ~

    I got an automated call 10/5/2014 directing me to http://www.myverizon28 .com to collect my $28 account credit that I had been "awarded." I knew immediately that it was a scam.

    I did check the website and it was hosted on bluehost.com and had been shut down. ~


  • Anonymous: 1 month, 1 week ago from: Columbus, Indiana, United States

    myverizon28 .com is also fake website. It was from the phone number that ended in 5555.

    I'm glad I am not the person in charge of the account, because that made it pretty obvious that it wasn't real. ~

    I just received an automated phone call similar to this saying I have a reward coming from Verizon of 36 dollars and to log into Verizon36 .com or something similar. My caller ID read unknown caller and the call was very hard to hear. Verizon sure knows that they are still phishing for someone to log in with their username and password to claim this so called reward. ~

    I received a call tonight from 800-922-6881 and they were saying something about go to verizon41 .com because I had a reward of $41 as well. I ported my number out from Verizon in July 2013 so I know that couldn't be the truth. As a matter of fact I think I still owe them lol. These scams are really getting pathetic! ~

    Unfortunately, they are still active. I received a call on my TracFone cell phone from this number about money, I think $54, but the prerecorded message started before my voice mail began recording. The message finished with "Verizon cares." It seemed to be in a Hispanic accent. The call woke me from drowsing at 11:25 pm. ~
