Verizon Warns Of Scam

The scam involves an offer of a free wireless phone and service for $3.95, the purported cost of shipping and handling, in exchange for victims’ checking account and bank routing number information, based on information gathered by the company.

The false offer and unauthorized use of the company’s name came to the attention of Verizon Wireless recently, when several victims called Verizon Wireless to inquire about the status of their so-called orders.

Verizon Wireless advises that it has not offered free phones and service as part of a promotional or telemarketing campaign.
