    Reporting scam

    elise4x4

      Received two calls from these numbers xxx xxx xxxx & xxx xxx xxxx telling me I owed someone money on a loan.

      I don't have any outstanding loans and have not applied for one.

       

      Where do I report to Verizon these scam numbers?

       

      I checked google to see that the 951 area code has been reported as a scam.  The 876 shown one complaint and is located in Jamaica.

          On Dec. 28, at 5:23 a,m. I received a call from (473) 520-9773.  I  didn't get a ring.  I was notified by Verizon saying I had a missed call.  I dialed the number twice, hearing no ring tones, but "recorded moaning" came on.  I hope that Verizon will do  something about this.  I hope that I don't get any more!!!

            December 31, 2013 at 12:23pm received a call from (800)145-2602 telling me to go to www.vz401.com and log in to claim my $401 prize.  The site looks similar to www.verizonwireless.com but asks for your "billing PIN" and is obviously not a legitimate site. 

             

            It would be great if something could be done about these fraudulent calls.
