Are texts starting with 9000 and having 12 digits really from VZ or are they scams?

Hi. I got a text with an offer that seems legit. The from address is 12 digits and the first four are 9000. Is this really from verizon or is it a phish. It had a URL of m.vzw.com/700s22 in it.

Thanks.

Kevin

If you look up the domain of the link provided (vzw.com) you'll see it is a Verizon owned domain.

We would recommend meeting us in a Private note, so we can review if we sent the message. Sometimes a phishing scam will try to duplicate an actual message, and try to appear as us. We just want to make sure it is from us first before running into an issue. I hope this makes sense.
