Why does Verizon Fraud Prevention need to speak with me to order my iPhone 6?

I upgraded my current line to an iPhone 6 around 5:00am EST. I received an email confirmation with both a pre-order confirmation number as well as an order confirmation number. Around 8:15am, I received a text from Verizon asking me to confirm the order by responding "YES" to the text, which I did. Several hours later, I received an email stating Verizon Fraud Prevention needed to speak with me to complete the order. I called on my lunch break and spent the entire hour on hold. When I got back into my office, I called again from my office line. I have been on hold for OVER 2 HOURS. I just want to get my phone ordered. I'm not sure why a phone that I am upgrading that is being mailed to my current address, and using a debit card with my name on it is triggering a fraud flag.

Help please!
