Well, it seems you could contact just about any CSR at Verizon Communications.  That individual will put you in touch with the appropriate person.

Better yet, why not secure your "private network" (which is clearly is not) in the first place by using the recommended encryption settings, user names, secure passwords, etc.?  There is absolutely no reason you cannot do this to secure your home network against electronic intruders.
