Discount text inquiry

My wife and I both received this text from different numbers at the same time.

Is it a true text for a regular phone plan or a scam?

Why would Verizon use some weird URL that doesn't have Verizon wireless in the main domain name? Obvious scam.

Looking up the domain name on WhoIs.com shows it is NOT owned by VerizonWireless: https://www.whois.com/whois/vzwpayboostonline.com

That domain belongs to an individual in Wisconsin: https://www.whois.com/whois/mybillingsupport-sale.com.  If it is PHISHING (which it may be), you've posted the active link along to this forum.  Hopefully, people will realize this and NOT CLICK ON THE LINK.

ThumbsNJ, I appreciate you bringing this to our attention. I would be curious too if I received a text like this. I would suggest not opening that link, as it is not from us. Our text messages sent to you will indicate it is coming from our 800-922-0204 number, and will display as a "VZW FREE MSG:".  EricaG_VZW
