Verizon verification scam


I received 10 phone calls from (800) 922-0298  in one hour's time! I was busy, so ignored it until they left a message saying "We are calling you from the verification department of Verizon Wireless. Your account is suspended by verification. Press one to activate your account. Press two to speak with a customer service representative." After I checked to make sure my phone was working OK, I blocked that number. They even tried to call after I had blocked the number!
