Bogus Verizon Automated Phone Calls and Phishing Website MyBonus130 .com

Verizon Wireless customers are receiving an automated phone recording message stating that they should go to the website: MyBonus130 .com, to get $130 off their next bill. This is a scam and the website MyBonus130 .com is a fake, designed to steal your Verizon user name and password.

Persons have received these bogus Verizon automated phone calls from the list of telephone numbers below:

  • 1-800-922-5555
  • 800-922-3333

The fake website: hxxp://MyBonus130 .com looks exactly like the legitimate Verizon Wireless website: http://www.verizonwireless.com/ and may take you to the phishing website: mybonus130.no-ip .biz.

Whatever you do, do not enter your Verizon Wireless sign in or login information on this malicious website.

If you try to sign-in to this fake website by entering your userID / cellphone number and password, it will be sent to the scammers behind this bogus website. With your sign-in information, these people will be able to gain access to your account.

With access to your account, they may deactivate your device, add their own and rack up international calls and internet usage. They may also steal your identity.

If you were tricked into entering your sign-in information on this malicious website: hxxp://MyBonus130 .com, please change your password.

How can I change my password for My Verizon?

You can change your password online:

If you are unable to change your password, please contact Verizon by telephone at 1-800-VERIZON.

Scammers will be creating more bogus websites and phone recordings to lure persons into their traps. If you receive any e-mails, text messages, or phone calls claiming that you have won something and that you need to go to a particular website in order to claim your prize, please contact Verizon at 1-800-VERIZON to verify this promotion.

    Got a call from 1-800-922-0204, caller ID said TECHNICAL SUPPORT. REcorded message telling me to go to www.verizon24 .com to claim my $24 credit. I don't have Verizon as my carrier anymore.


  • Anonymous: 1 month, 1 week ago

    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.

    I received an automated call this morning from 1-800-922-0204 saying they would give me a credit of $44.00 off my bill if I go to WWW.44verizon .com. They are still going strong! Glad I checked it out first.
