What is vtext.com?

Vtext.com is Verizon's Web SMS portal used to send and receive text and multimedia messages from your phone, tablet or the web using your Verizon Wireless phone number.

Recipients of unsolicited text or email messages asking them to cash a check, keep some and send the rest to someone else, are asked not to do so because this another trick used by scammers to deceive their potential victims into cashing a fake check, which the victims will have to pay for along with additional fees incurred by the bank for processing the check.

If you have received the messages below or something similar, please do not respond or follow the instructions in them. And, never send money in order to receive a lottery or promotion because this is how lottery scammers trick their victims into sending them money.
