RoxyK82, I'm having what sounds like a very similar issue as you. It just started in the last month, but since January 11th, this really odd number has appeared only on my text messages on my bill EIGHTY TWO TIMES! They are ALL incoming texts, but I've never actually received them. When I called Verizon, I was told it was coming from a computer. I don't know if this is the same problem as you're having, but mine is still unresolved, and I'm going to take further action to get it resolved. I hope everything worked out for you.

                                                                   Best Regards

Same here but all outgoing texts that don’t exist on husband’s phone. They show up immediately after a valid text. Same on my phone but mine stopped.

Seems to to be a verizon issue and wondering why nothing is being done to stop it.

Same here, and I will give everything, my phone, my husband's phone, copies

of the phone bill, etc...to the police and let them figure it out, because

as you read through this thread, everyone "spoke to an agent " yet they all

have different reasons. Verizon's left hand doesn't know what their right

hand is doing.

This looks like it is tracking text messages. It is showing up as a sent text message to 008-000-4101 at the exact time a text is sent or received on just one of my lines. It is not showing up like this on my other 3 lines. It makes it look like every message coming in or out is being copied and sent to this number.
