vtext.com Messages Being Sent by Scammers

Scammers are using vtext.com, Verizon's cellphone wireless networks Email to SMS or Web Portal text messaging service, to send fraudulent messages like the ones below to their potential victims. The messages state the recipients are winners in some so-called lotteries, or they have been selected to have their vehicles wrap with an advertisement in which they will be paid for. The scammers may send other fraudulent messages with the intention of scamming or robbing their potential victims.

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.
