Watch out for phishing e-mail looking very much like a Verizon notification

  • I am a little concerned that the Verizon rep knew about it and Verizon had not sent out a warning e-mail themselves.

  • I've gotten the same thing in a couple of my email accts, which showed up in my spam folder. I deleted it knowing that it was a phishing email because we do not have any accounts with Verizon.

  • Yup, that would be a dead give-away. My spam did not catch it, yet catches ones I have already given permission.

  • If you want to find out if it is legit or not, if you have yahoo mail, then you can right click on the email (do not open it, just right click on the heading). Then click "View Full Header". This will tell you who sent you the email and if it was sent to multiple email addresses or not. For an example, this phishing email came from:

    Received: from(account wAccountNotify at verizonwireless dot com HELO qxuhoesnbzqcnv dot pjulu dot org)
