Watch out for phishing e-mail looking very much like a Verizon notificationPosted Wednesday, May 16, 2012, at 10:06 AM
I just got a very formal looking notification from what appeared to be Verizon saying our bill was ready for review and payment. I am used to seeing these so I thought nothing of it until I saw the amount was 10 times our normal bill.
The temptation was to click the link to see the bill but I used the phone first to call our daughter to see if she knew of any excessive use, (she didn't) then to Verizon who said in the recording that our statement was not ready yet, so....I confirmed it was a phishing e-mail.
Watch out for it!
