I received this text today:

Msg discount VZW:  It's fantastic!  Applying special voucher code and the next bill has been reduced by 25%.  To claim credit, https://rewardvswrb.net

When I click on link, it takes me to login on Verizon, and after putting in my login info, it takes me to Amazon homepage.

 

Is this legit????

Ouch!  Safe practices say question legitimacy BEFORE clicking links.  I would log into your My Verizon account and check password recovery methods and maybe change your password just in case a hacker has gotten access to your account.

There are other threads asking similar questions about texts/emails purportedly from Verizon.

Looking up that domain in the link you posted using https://whois.com finds that it is not registered.

I would also want to make sure something is not a scam, and we can certainly assist. That is definitely not us, and it is a scam to try to get your login information. We recommend changing your login information as soon as possible, as when you used it to login, it provided them with that information. Please be aware we will only link you to our own website at: www.verizon.com, or www.verizonwireless.com

This is obviosuly happening to a lot of people, there are numerous threads and posts about it, and it has even made some news stations. Here is one example of another thread for the same issue:

Spammers and Spoofers are always going to try and take our personal info, so never click any links in any suspicious messages; report them as spam and be done.
