    My daughter just received one of these phishing text messages, she wasn't sure what it was, so she sent me a screen shot of it.

    This one said:

    "Your Verizon account is locked. Take action now: www.verizonwireless.com-b2c-myverizonlp.etoranj.ir"

    It looks like an almost legit website...the only problem is, her service was working fine at the time, so she called me, and also the domain extension "ir." is used for Iran!
