request to authenticate from the verizon website

I keep getting text messages  that say " Verizon Alert: There's a request to authenticate from the Verizon website. Please confirm or deny here:" the link at the bottom looks the same as when I get a legitimate request to authenticate. I have spoken to all other members of my phone plan and it's none of them. Is this phishing or am I being hacked?

@Swigmom ,

Being "hacked" can mean a lot of different things, but that is defintely not the case here. If you get any unknown texts, especially those with a link to click on, they are almost always phishing attempts to gain access to your information. These should be reported to SPAM and deleted afterwards.
