Text Message Discount Scam

I received a text message from VZWireless telling me I was eligible for a discount on my next bill. Please update your information to receive this discount http://bill217.com/?=jWJ. The phone number that sent the text is 1-213-212-2602. When I try to call the number, I get the usual "Welcome to Verizon Wireless." But then it follows up with "Your call cannot be completed as the called party is temporarily unavailable."

Let’s get to the bottom of this text message.  The first step that we would recommend would be to forward this text message to the email SMS.7726.Abuse.Team@one.verizon.com or you can forward the text to 7726 (SPAM).  Here is more information to prevent calls and texts like these:
