this is a really lame response.  Verizon should be able to explain why they send text messages that reflect the source number as the Turkey country code +90.  This is also happening with the newly introduced two factor authentication texts.  Shutting off notification is not a response.  With all the scamming going on,  Verizon should explain why this is happening so clients know it is not from a scam action.

That is not an answer!
