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!
Though we do block billions of spam calls & messages each year, we know that some still get through, and we want to offer as many ways as possible to prevent them. Are you already using our free Call Filter service, mburns_08109? If not, you can learn about it here: https://vz.to/2G7Hot5 EricW_VZW
