Phishing or legit message
Enthusiast - Level 1

Good morning,


I woke up to a message from (213)509-7986 stating:


VZN Free Msg: November bill is paid. Thanks, Here's a little gift for you:


This did not come from the same number as most of my other Verizon messages (such as bill pay notifications and Request for Authentication) so I'm fairly certain it is a phishing request.

Forward the message to SPAM (7726) and follow the instructions in the reply. 

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

This does sound a little fishy, Ravynseye. MVP Ann154 is correct by reporting it to us. Do not click on the link and delete the message once forwarded. Does this help? -Amber
