    I got a call from 832-727-4840 but left no message. I returned the call using magic jack as I figured it to be bogus.

    It SOUNDED like a Verizon automated system but they kept referencing having your credit card handy so I knew it was a scam. I went through the menus several times and finally was connected to a live person via the tech support option.

    "Vanessa" with Verizon customer service, at first sounded legit as she has most of the Verizon phone etiquette down. That is until I asked for her call back number. She fumbled around, I could tell she was not at a desk or wearing a headset, and finally gave me 800-922-0240. She also gave me attitude when I wanted to inform "Verizon" of a possible phishing scam.

    I was in a playful mood so I hung up with "Vanessa" and attempted to call her back. The number "Vanessa" gave me was for "USA rebates" and I could get a free medical alert bracelet if over 50 OR 100 rebate card all for giving them my credit card / debit card information to pay the "processing fee" of $1.95.

    I spoke with a "Michelle" who took my bogus name and address of 123 Sesame st, Sunnyside PA. I tried to convince her to just spot me the $2, that I was good for it. She adamantly refused and eventually hung up on me. So... I call back. Got a different person who then put me on hold to get manager, he hung up.

    I waited a few minutes and call back. Finally got "Michelle" again and she still refused. I asked what city she was in, she said Virginia Beach. I replied, "OH that's cool what street, I am also in Virginia Beach." The response was please hold for manager and once again hung up. I figure I'll wait until 2 AM then try again.

    Is it wrong that I find pleasure in screwing with scammers???? ~

    I got a call yesterday about the $32 one. It was automated and left a voicemail to go to Verizon 32 .com to claim $32 off my bill. I couldn't find anything about it on verizons website so I guess its fake. ~


    • Posted: 6 months, 1 week ago by info:

      'Verizon32. com' is a fake and phishing website. ~


  • Posted: 6 months, 1 week ago by an anonymous user from United States:

    My phone call was an automated call giving instructions to go to www.myverizon32 to claim $32

    I didn't do it because I figured Verizon would have done this some other way.
    Creepy though. ~

    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... ~


  • Posted: 8 months, 4 weekso ago by an anonymous user from Albany, Georgia, United States:

    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. ~


  • Posted: 8 months, 4 weekso ago by an anonymous user 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. ~


  • Posted: 9 months ago by an anonymous user from Paducah, Kentucky, United States:

    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. ~


  • Posted: 9 months, 1 week ago by an anonymous user from Rocky Mount, North Carolina, United States:

    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! ~

  • Posted: Mar 11, 2014 ago by an anonymous user from Eugene, Oregon, United States:

    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. ~
