What does it mean when you get a message from Verizon saying: if you have received this unexpectedly reply stop to end. It's from number: 900080002051.......

After receiving four cryptic message over a period of 5 days from 900080006202, I received one more message (different by still cryptic), from 900080002051 followed by:  "If you have received this unexpectedly, please reply STOP to end."

Not wanting to verify my cell phone number, I've ignored them ALL.

Still I'd like to know if this is a phishing scam or some system issue with Verizon.

Those numbers are usually coming from Verizon Wireless themselves so they already have your phone number.

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

Thanks,

Your probably right however "usually" doesn't exactly fill me with confidence. 

My Rule #1: Unless I'm sure, I don't reply.

The numbers are always different, but it fits the pattern of messages from Verizon Wireless.
