Are Verizon's spam filters on vacation?
Enthusiast - Level 3

I've been with Verizon since they got into the email business and spam has not been a big issue. But lately all I get is bombarded with spam. My emails for Today totaled 28 and 20 of them were spam. Not a good percentage.

Come on Verizon,,, obviously something is not working! How about some assistance...

Spammers have been very active.

I have two verizon accounts

ONe like yours got in the 20's of spam yesterday.  Its a long time id

The other is for an ID that has only existed 1 1/2 years.  To date it got ONE(1) spam that wasn't caught by the spam filter.

So lots depend on how and where you userid has been used.

Over the last month or two, I have seen a very large increase in the spam that gets through the Verizon filter.  Prior to that Verizon was filtering these same messages to my Spamdecttor folder and only about 10-20 percent of the spam got through to my inbox.  Now it's around 80%.  They broke something.
