Received CMR Claim Dept bill

Tenant in my home was planting grass and cut the Verizon wire.  I called Support to request repair, specifically asking if there would be a charge to me for the repair, but was told there would not.  A paper bill in my name on Verizon letterhead for $300.67 was later mailed to the service address (which is not my mailing address.)  Upon receiving the bill from the tenant, I called CMR and was told the only option I had was to pay the bill.  I was advised NOT to call Verizon.  Needing resolution, as I cannot afford to pay such a large bill for service I did not authorize, I spent over 1.5hrs on the phone with Verizon trying to rectify this situation.  Noone at Verizon (I was transferred to 5 different associates) was able to tell me anything about this bill.  My billing record with Verizon is impecable; my account has always been paid in full by the due date.

Is this a fraudulant bill?  Why does Verizon have no record of it?  Please offer some assistance.
