Scam: voicemail - account suspended

I just received a call and the caller ID showed the incoming call as "Voicemail".  I answered it and I got a recording that said my account was suspended and to press 1 to reactivate. Then it asked for my account pin at which point I hung up.  How are they able to have voicemail show up on the caller ID?

The lengths the criminals will go to is astounding. They purchase very expensive illegal equipment to fool people using fake caller ID names. I am so glad you didn't fall for it. Verizon will never call and ask you for your password. Here's more information on what is called "spoofing. "https://www.verizonwireless.com/support/company-name-id-faqs/#item9
