I also just got the same call. With a spoofed caller id. VERIZON PLEASE FIX THE ABILITY TO SPOOF...you can track calls...just ask the NSA how to do it. We can land men on the moon, so nobody tell me we can't stop these scams that WE, the users have to pay for in the form of minutes off of our plans.
The spoofed number on my phone was:
800 600 1228
I just got a new one, 18006001228. Blocked it. I now see that Verizon charges $5 a month for permanent blocking services. I wonder if they are sending these out. It would not surprise me.
I got the same thing, twice today. I tried to hit the "bomb the sender" button, but then I realized that I don't have one. Stupid Samsung phone. Anyway, the last time I got one of these and actually answered it, it led me to a fake VZW site (something like vzw300.com, which would tell you that you'll get $300). I looked up the address in WHOIS, and it was in Australia. I found the server's fraud address and sent them a fraud alert. Servers need to become convinced that they can't go around handing out domain names that start with "vzw." They're all spoofs. Does anyone else have a "bomb the sender" button? I'd like to get one of those.
