Verizon users should always go directly to www.verizon.net and sign into their accounts to view important updates or notifications. And, those who have already been tricked by the phishing email are asked to change their passwords and contact Verizon before their accounts are hijacked and used fraudulently.

    I'm always getting the same thing from a ksrld@_. The first part is always the same, but the last part keeps changing. I figured out that it was a scammer right away when I saw the misspelled name of Verizon.

  • June 13, 2019 at 11:44 AM by an anonymous user from: Ashburn, Virginia, United States

    This scammer can't even spell Verizon correctly, they spell it Verison

  • June 11, 2019 at 11:46 AM by an anonymous user from: Cecil, Pennsylvania, United States

    I have received at least 15 of these emails. The From address always starts off as ksrld@ but the domains are different.

    • June 13, 2019 at 12:48 PM by an anonymous user from: Woodbridge Township, New Jersey, United States

      me also and think it is funny since all of a sudden they are saying Verison and cannot spell correctly

  • June 11, 2019 at 7:05 AM by an anonymous user from: Ashburn, Virginia, United States

    I've been receiving these regularly. Just how stupid do they think people are. First, they id themselves as "Verison" not Verizon. (Unlike these bottom dwellers, most people know how to spell.) Second,Verizon got out of the email business a few years ago. (Anyone with a verizon.net email address knows this.)

    Sadly, there a some people who are vulnerable and might be caught off guard. Otherwise, they wouldn't be doing it. If you know anyone who is vulnerable (elderly relative, etc.), please warn them.

    I wish I had the know how and resources to hack into the bottom dwellers systems to wreak havoc.

    BEWARE!

    I am seeing this daily on my old AOL email account also. Same sender ksrld @ redpass.com and also same sender using:

    faversovereak.com

    ttende.sabolity.com

    adexe.com

    I'm sure more will be sent until some smart IT guy can shut these guys down.

    Same. Get one a day or some variation of, one of which says my account locked. I forwards to phishing@verizon per their instructions but still get them.

  • June 2, 2019 at 9:27 PM by an anonymous user from: Pomona, California, United States

    I am a retired federal criminal investigator. The emails I have been receiving all end up in my spam folder, and the subject line refers to my account as Verizon.com instead of verizon.net.

    Verizon sold out to Frontier communications in California a few years ago, and my email address was transferred to an AOL webmail account; they obviously don't know about this. LOL

    Thanks to your website, I will not fall for the same scam message I received today.

    I have gotten several of these recently on one of my "verizon.net" e-mail accounts, though technically there IS no verizon.net e-mail service anymore - those of us who still have that "domain" are doing it thru AOL Mail. And when I try to directly access verizon.net - my browser automatically transfers me to verizon.com.
