"Verizon Wireless Payment Cancellation" Scam

Verizon Wireless Payment Cancellation Scam

Verizon Wireless customers are asked to be aware of fake email invoices (see below), which claim that they have purchased products or services, and if you did not authorize the purchases or payments they should visit Payment Cancellation. The fake email invoices are being sent by scammers to frighten and trick the recipients into clicking on the links within them by claiming they need to do so in order to cancel the purchases and get a refund. But, once the recipients click on the link in the fake email invoices, they will be taken to a phishing website that steals personal, financial, and Verizon Wireless credentials (usernames and passwords).

Therefore, Verizon Wireless customers who have received email invoices appearing as if they were sent from Verizon Wireless, should avoid clicking on the links in them. They should instead, sign directly into their account by going directly to the following link: https://www.verizonwireless.com/
