We just fell for a scam on 5/25/13 telling me to go to www.mybonus125.com. When I got there, I was redirected to a site identical to verizonwireless which asked for my username, password, and pin number. Regretfully, I fell for it. After thinking about it, we changed our password on our Verizon account (legit site) and are hoping that no activity will be charged to our account. How can we be sure that we have done enough to protect ourselves?
Changing your password on verizonwireless.com was a good first step. You can also change your PIN by calling customer service (and you may be able to do so online--I'm not sure). If those were the only two pieces of information you typed in, and your account at the *real* site is intact, then you may have changed things soon enough the scammers didn't have time to use your information.
Littlered, as an added bonus, we provide the free Call & Messaging Block feature with your calling plan. You can add that ten digit phone number to the restricted list, http://vz.to/MqEgqB Any phone number added to this feature will be unable to call or text message your mobile number. ^LH
I recieved a call today as well stating that I have received a $150 bonus reward and all I had to do was log in to myvz150.com. Luckily, I noticed that the log in screen asked for my PIN which I knew the "REAL" Verizon Wireless site does not, so I didn't log in at all. Since the call came in a (800) 000-0000 I doubt there is a way to block the call or report it.
