ROBO-CALL harassment from another GREEDY low-life corporation!

 Feb 21st, 2013
Getting calls from this number about every two hours. Whomever it is claims there is a change to my Verizon plan and left one voice message to call an 800 number within the next 24 hours ! The calls need to STOP !
 Feb 15th, 2013
As others said previously, this number is a third-party "collection agency type" company. My bill isn't even past due & they have called me 6 times in the past 5 hours and sent me 2 text messages. They do not leave voicemails & the text messages are very misleading by saying that there has been "a recent change to your account status". That is a false statement and when a company is trying to obtain payment (or collections), they legally HAVE TO advise you that they are trying to collect money on a past due balance. So, if you want the phone calls to stop & make a difference, you should report this to Verizon and the Better Business Bureau.
 Feb 15th, 2013
Ok I just tried to block this number on my verizon acct. and it said,"this number cannot be blocked"
Soooo, if Verizon is admitting that this is a scam number..why are they protecting it?
 Feb 13th, 2013
Six phone calls in 24 hours with my land line turned off 90% of the time. Very, very, very aggressive. Time to leave Verizon to be sure.
 Feb 09th, 2013
Received a text saying call Verizon at 800-249-2462. Within 24 hours. The number was a definite fraud. Reported to Real Verizon. They called from a 2063153010 and. Left a voicemail claiming to be Verizon. They said there had been a change to my account and I needed to call. I called Verizon immediately . Let's stop these scammers.
 Feb 08th, 2013
UPDATE.........I got a call back from a manager in the Fraud Department at Verizon today and he confirmed that the 1-800-249-2462 and 206-315-3010 belong to the Varolii Corporation. He stated that Verizon's Financial Services has outsourced to Varolii to contact Verizon customers that have past due amounts owed.
This company guarantees Verizon that they will get the customers to call them back through creative ways of wording their messages. This Fraud Manager at Verizon apologized over and over again to me that I had to spend numerous hours this week trying to resolve the issue and was very sorry that Verizon kept telling me it was a phishing scam. IT IS NOT A PHISHING SCAM!!!! DO NOT LET THEM TELL YOU THAT!!!!! He said that he is going to escalate this up his management chain to find out why Verizon is misleading their customers and using this 3rd party company to send deceptive messages such as "there has been a recent change to your account , please call Verizon within 24hours." I asked for him to call me back within a week to let me know what the outcome was from his escalation. He promised me he would call. This is the first person in over 7 hours of communication with Verizon this week that has been forthright and honest and actually very contrite. Thank you VERRRRY MUUUUCH MATT!!!!! With the constant threat of fraud and phishing scams that consumers have to deal with in this day and age, it is just completely WRONG that Verizon would choose to mislead their customers in such a way to collect payments. People are being contacted that do NOT even have past due amounts.

Other companies use this Service so if you do not have Verizon, and are getting calls / texts from these numbers it is NOT A PHISHING SCAM. They are attempting to collect money!
 Jan 26th, 2013
This number 206-315-3010 and 800-249-2462 belong to Verizon through a 3rd party that they use to try to get you to call in to Verizon. They are using this tactic to try to collect money on your account. I filed a fraud claim today with Verizon regarding the text messages and phone calls because Verizon told me after a 2 hour phone call on 1-21-13 that is was a phising attempt. I told the Fraud rep today that I was going to file a Better Business Bureau complaint against Verizon and Varolii Corp(206-315-3010) which is the 3rd party that Verizon is using to make these text and calls. I got a call a few hours later from that same Fraud rep at Verizon and she left a voice mail stating the 800-249-2462 is a Verizon number and that it is a collection call.
So finally after numerous phone calls in the past few months and calls this week, they finally admit to it being them. But get this, they had be reset all my passwords and userids and gave me a text number to forward the texts to if I get them and an email to forward phishing complaints. So they are having me jump through all these hoops pretending and then in the end it was THEM!!!!!!. I am filing a BBB complaint against them and I suggest others do as well. All they need to do is just call you and tell you they need a payment. I short paid my bill by $40 last month and that is why I am getting all these texts and calls. I just don't get why they just do not state their business plainly. The message that I received today from the 206-315-3010 stated there were changes to my account and to call Verizon within 24hrs. So I guess, they think people will freak out and call in but wont call in if they are told they owe money. Does that make sense??? They are in control of the service so all they have to do is tell you to pay or you will be disconnected. This is not a way for them to treat their customers by being tricky and evasive to get you to call them so they can collect.

other companies may be using this 3rd party service as well, so if you have provider that is not Verizon, it could still be a collection call. They use these alternative type messages to try to get you to call in. If you check out the Varolii Corp website, it talks about how this is the type of service they provide.

Verizon Billing Scam'
 Jan 15th, 2013
When you call back it sounds almost like a genuine VZW call center, but, after a month and a half of innumerous phone calls to them, I can tell the difference! Besides, the number they called and did NOT leave a message on wasn't even a Verizon cell phone. Not a cell phone at all, and definitely not Verizon!

I implore anyone who gets these calls, do NOT - I repeat - DO NOT divulge any information at all, and please report them to Verizon wireless immediately! It is a SCAM.
 Jan 14th, 2013
Caller ID says Varolla Corporation 206-315-3010 They left a long message about a change in status and a number to call. I have Bright House for my phone. I read that this is Verizon. Probably some kind of scam. Make all the scammers stop calling me. I can't use my phone for all the calls from all over the country from people I do not know. Help already!
 Jan 08th, 2013
Entered my phone number to Do Not Call - that doesn't work AT ALL. Keep getting calls and I won't answer. You are wasting time in calling my number. Quit calling.

verizon late payment
 Jan 03rd, 2013
I have been getting calls and texts from 206-315-3010 asking me to contact them about a change in status. I finally called VzW customer service this afternoon and learned that they have not been trying to reach me. The rep offered to blocked that # which I accepted.
 Dec 29th, 2012
Received call from 206-315-3010 which tries to identify itself as Verizon Wireless and asks for my Cell # and security ID. Then received text from 67753 telling me the following "Free msg: Verizon Wireless needs to speak with you in the next 24 hours. Please call us at 800-249-2462." Did not trust the text because it was not formatted like all other text messages from Verizon. Called Verizon and they said the number is a fraudulent # and sent me to the Fraud Department.
 Dec 28th, 2012
have no idea why they called me i called verizon and said there is no updates on my phone since Nov. and my bill is paid in full and next payment not due until next i am just ignoring the call..
 Dec 27th, 2012
Dont trust these thieves.
 Dec 19th, 2012
I was first contacted by 1-206-315-3010 and it said it was the Verizon message center and they had a message for me, they even used my name. When I couldn't retrieve the message they prompted me to call the 800-382-7114 to do an automatic payment. I called the real Verizon number and they told me it is a phishing scam
 Dec 01st, 2012
It's Verizon Wireless calling because your payment is late. It's not a scam! Just pay your bill!
 Nov 30th, 2012
Chatted online with a rep from verizon. I would suggest that anyone getting a call from this number simply contact verizon. I was not happy with the answer. I'll post results later.
 Nov 19th, 2012
these people are claiming to be Verizon and wanting to talk about a change to my account. There has been no change and when I called Verizon on the 611 system on the cell phone they called me on Verizon said it was not them, there has been no changes and this is a scam that I should not respond to! And for those who claim this is an automated system you get sucked into if your Verizon bill is overdue, I am paid in full through the end of the year so I'm not buying it.
 Nov 15th, 2012
This number 206-315-3010 is calling my house phone and cell phone. This is very annoying because they are ringing my phone back to back, but I do not answer them. Some one needs to put a stop to these people.
 Oct 24th, 2012
Called VZ after getting a call from this number claiming to be VZ...they have no record of calling me for any reason in the last 2 months and said it was spam. It sounded very official, so do not give information!!!
 Oct 15th, 2012
Verizon bills in advance for phone service even when the customer's contract has expired. I start receiving txt messages and these calls repeatedly before I even receive the paper bill by postal mail. When they disconnect, they charge PER LINE reconnect fees. I had a time period that was financially difficult because my father was very ill, I found someone nearly dead in a ditch, I'd just buried my grandmother, my kids found their dead cat at the bus stop, my step dad was dying of cancer and I split up from a 6 year long relationship...etc. These events caused me severe memory loss, extreme weight loss, extreme grief and loss, PTSD and more. I tried negotiating payment arrangements with Verizon on several occasions and found that each time I called I'd get different and/or misinformation and never was I able to reach a manager despite multiple requests and follow up calls. While there have been times with good customer service, I'm sad to say that there have been substantially more negative experiences than good ones. I find their repeated calls to be harassing and their communication to be like that of a Bully. This is what happens when a company gets too successful so I give business to smaller companies whenever possible.

Annoying!!!!! Decided to try to get some answers from someone about these calls. Since I have another landline and another cell #, I call forwarded the calls on the other lines to the FCC main telephone #. Will let you know if it works.
 Mar 01st, 2012
I have gotten a call from this place the last two days. I have never been a verizon customer and have no one that I know who is as we cannot get verizon at this time here where I live. So whoever is saying pay your bill should get their asses kicked becouse most of here have never been their customer. Have now blocked this number on my home phone.

Relax guys!! Varolli is a third party company that handles Dunning calls for not one client but many. I work for Verizon and Verizon sends them daily files of 1000'S of customers who havent made payment on the account. It is quite possible that your records can slip into the Dunning call list too by mistake... This is all automated feature. No one has time and money in Verizon to automatically call each and every individual. So after 45 days if your bill isnot recieved it goes trhough a dunning process.

If your name is on the list and its a mistake just simply call Verizon and ask them to correct it.

My little sister keeps getting phone calls from 206-315-3010.. She does have Verizon, but she's not the primary account holder nor is her account balance past due. WE EVEN CHECKED. What's really messed up is the fact that she's 12!! They apparently call her several times a day. She answered once but no one was on the line, all the other times it has gone to voicemail and its just an automated message. The message says
"This is Verizon Wireless calling with an important message. Please call us at 1-800-249-2462 to change the information on your account" or something similar.
I registered her number on the Do Not Call List, so this kind of thing doesn't happen again... and we also notified Verizon Wireless of the calls- they said they would block the number from calling her again. So it definitely seems that this is some type of scam!
 Jun 26th, 2011
dumbasses keep calling my numbwer its not me they are asking for
 Jan 25th, 2011
It's Verizon calling about my cell phone account being over due. They call 2 or 3 times every day. Problem is, my cell phone is a pre-paid phone with a different carrier... Dumbasses.
 Nov 03rd, 2010
It is 10:36pm! Another call from (206)315-3010 just came in! So not ok!
I do truly believe its a Verizon related issue, but wow I'm in shock with how unproffesional they are. Call shows up as "unknown" but my droid app MR CALLER ID identifies them as Verizon. Just seems way to sketchy they call atleast 12 times a day from two numbers (also 949-286-3311). First received ligit text from Verizon reminding me to mail my defective phone within 10 days of receiving my manufacturer replacement, I mailed it back after exactly 4 days, should be no biggie, my bill actually has a credit of $147.20 so no worries there. So my point is...... blocked caller ID, calling from 5:40am-10:46pm,using multiple numbers, Never even leaving a message, can't get a live person when I return call, & Verizon says they don't know why they are calling me! I refuse to communicate with these people. I have been a customer of VRZ for 12 years I pay my bill, always been very happy with them; so if Verizon has a problem w then I will b happy to find out what & fix it! Something is not right or ok with these people!! WE REALLY NEED SOMEONE WHOSE DEALT WITH THEM TO TELL US IF #1 THE PROBLEM WAS LIGIT & THE OUTCOME, I SEE NONE ONLY ASSUMPTIONS! I'm so over it thank you CallBlocking apps! I now have 3 apps allowed me to mark. Both #s as spam & my phone can finally STFU. Be careful! just call Verizon directly 611 because any issue u may or may not have or not have, Verizon will take care of it & tell u what's up. There is No reason for this or this creepy company!
 Aug 23rd, 2010
they keep calling my son...we have a family plan with verizon, and contrary to what some of these people are saying, i am NOT bill is current...anyway, my son is not the primary for the plan, and no one else is getting these phone calls, so it MUST be a scam....the last time i was late (about 2 yrs ago) verizon got hold of the primary # (husband) by text on his phone....
 Aug 14th, 2010
Let it go to voicemail. Message was in spanish. I don't have verizon accounts so no idea why they're calling.

Verizon automated survey.
 May 26th, 2010
They misbilled me saying it was a credit not to pay when I changed my service. Then they didn't bill me at all for two months so I was overdue. I paid them. But since then their billing has been messed up. I pay on the 15th and they get the money around the 19th (ie it's taken out of my bank account) and the bill isn't due for 10 more days and yet they consistently don't credit the account for 3 more weeks! I just got another 'overdue' bill, so I called them and explained what was going on and that there was already a payment in the pipeline for the full amount because I was frustrated with their ass backwards policies. Only since I'd received the bill (4 days ago) they managed to credit the money I sent them the month before so now I owe less than I've sent.. and it will be all messed up again. :( Really their phone service is great but their billing sucks scum water.

Basically it's a Verizon Collection Service. If you call the number back and confirm you are the owner of the phone, it will say you are past due by whatever amount. Do not provide billing zip code or any other info to this caller/voicemail system. To check your account balance or pay Verizon directly, call the contact info on your bill or check it online.

Read below for why you should NEVER provide account info or even personal info as small as your billing zip, to anyone who calls you. Always hang up and call the original debtor/account holder (in this case Verizon). Use ONLY the phone number listed on your statements from them (not collection statements) or by finding them in the phonebook/online and getting it there.

Here's the deal with called from "Verizon Message Retrieval System" etc. 3rd (or even 4th or 5th) party collection companys often take over the job of collecting on late cell/home phone bills. Some even pay to but these accounts for pennies on the dollar because then not only can they recoup the money owed to the provider (Verizon, etc) but they can make bank. These folks operate in shady ways and even if you pay them, your account may never be credited.

There are also scam artists out there who call and often even have your correct name, and ask for payment on an amount owed. If it's a message it will ask for you zip. Hang up on these people or if you got a message, DO NOT enter any info.

If you do have a bill with a phone provider that you are currently using, either mail them a payment, or pay online (fastest), or if you can't dial out on your cell, you can usually call your voicemail and it will redirect you to bill pay. These are all legit and your account will get credit for any payments made. (Be sure to write down the confim #.)

If you want to confirm a bill owed to a provider you are no longer with, call them directly with an old statement and give them the account number and they will be able to tell you if you have an outstanding debt or not. (You should check your credit report as well.)

If you do have an outstanding bill with a provider you no longer are with and plan to make a payment, ask if you can make one online (sometimes this is not possible if you no longer have an active account), pay over the phone, or send a payment to the payment address listed on an old statement.

NEVER make a payment over the phone, online, or in the mail to any company other than the original debtor. Even if a collection company contacts you, check with the original debtor first to assure you still owe that amount. Collection companies (the shady ones especially) often times attempt to collect on debts that have been paid off (sometimes years ago), because they will either get a payment from the original debtor (i.e. Verizon) if they submit a payment for your account, or with 4th or 5th party collection companies, they have paid to buy your debt from the original debtor or even another collection agency, and will actually lose money if they get no payment from an account. They will attempt to collect on old debts that have been paid off, just to recoup their costs and make money on top of that.

I have had an issue where I continued to receive calls from an AT&T collection company saying I owed over $200 and I never even had an account with them! (I called AT&T and they verified I did not owe anything as well.)

Don't let threats to your credit by collection agencies scare you either. Provided you are keeping up on payments and do not owe old bills to providers you are no longer with, the shady collection agencies really can't do anything, but the threats will seem intimidating. Be sure to regularly monitor your credit report for any false reporting. If there is an error or false report you can ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS write the 3 agencies and dispute the report in question. Then the original debtor must provide evidence that the amount is still owed or the report must be removed from your credit reports.

I know I went into excessive detail here, but I'm so F-ing sick of the shady collection companies that blatantly ignore FTC and FCC policies and call with fake CALL ID numbers, call at 4 am, try to scare people with threats, or try to collect debts that are no lonfer owed. I'm a Director of Client Services in a major firm and I know damn well what is and isn't legal.

It's entirely possible these particular calls are from a legit agency or even Verizon themselves, but as the process of calling an unknown voicemail system has not been widely publicized, it is questionable as to it's legitimacy. (I especially question it, as I called the number and it's saying my bill is double what it should be, and I just paid it 2 weeks ago. There should only be a current bill owed and it should not be past due yet.)

The faster people get into the practice of only paying the original debtor, the faster we will see and end to shady collection companies and their ridiculous threats.

You were provided a service by the original debtor. Legally they are the only ones you have to pay and despite what a collection company says or even Verizon, ATT, etc themselves say, you DO NOT have to submit payment though the collection company. You actually SHOULD NOT submit payment through the collection company. You have far more legal recourse if you submit payment to the original debtor directly and then they try to say you still owe the bill, than if you submit through a collection agency, and many 4th or 5th party agencies regularly change names or cannot even be tracked down or contacted if there is an issue...which means if you pay them, your money may never get to Verizon to credit your account, which means that not only did you waste the amount you paid on a collection company that will never give it back to you, but you will also still owe Verizon the original amount plus any late fees. I watched a neighbor go through this. Don't let it happen to you.

Try to pay your bills on time, always pay the original debtor directly, and when in doubt or if you're getting threats by collectors, contact your State Attorney General for more info.

I received a call earlier in the day from 206-315-3010, and when they said press 1 if you are Dan, I hung up. I called Verzion and they said they did not call. When this number called me back, I let it go to voice mail, and the number they left for me to call back was the 800-249-2462. We have been getting weird scam calls since my wife did our daughters FASFA for college. She Googled FASFA, and got sent to a pay site (which we didn"t pay), but has caused us problems since then. Let unknown callers go to voice mail.

This is odd, I contact Verizon and they said they have not contacted me my account is current ect. I called the phone number and they informed me they can only locate account with a social security number. I don't think so. Be careful this company is committing some form of fraud. Do not give them any information if you call them. They have been calling my home and cell phone daily for five days in a row and they always call after 8pm.

If the calls continue, I will be filing reports with the FTC, BBB and any other agency that I can find.

I called Verizon & they said there was no reason this Varolii would be calling me. I called Varolii & they're jerks. "We're a major corporation, we have every right to call as often or whenever we need to"

The phn#: 206-315-3010, has called my landline phone 7 times in the last 3 days. This number comes up a "Varolii Corporation", which used to be PAR3, and it was something else before that. Funny how they feel that they need to keep changing their name. If they are connected to Verizon Wireless, it would be as a contract company. I sure would not trust any company in any way that cannot even keep the same name. If you want to Harass the "VAROLII CORPORATION" back; here is some info that might help. email: Phone#: 800-206-2979, which even has a voice mail system, where you can leave them stupid messages. One way to fight back, that might slow these types down some, would be to give them back, a taste of their own medicine.
 May 06th, 2009
I received two calls on my cell today from 206 315 3010. Both of these calls were received within a few hours of each other. I did not answer either call and both call left voice mail. The first voice mail was digital giberish. The second voice mail was a computer generated message claiming to be Verizon, used our account name and advised to call because our account needed "immediate attention". After I started to investigate this telephone number, I recieved a call on my landline from the same number and it listed "Varolii Corporation" as the caller name on my CID. There website is 206 315 3010 is a landline telephone number. I hope this info is valuable to anyone bothered by this number.
 May 01st, 2009
Said it was about my overdue Verizon bill of $200.00. I do have Verizon but my bill has NEVER been late. I managed to override their "menu" and talked to a human and told them the person they wanted wasn't me. I also was concerned how they got my number but with a different name. I was reassured that number would be removed so I knew then it wasn't actually Verizon.
 Mar 31st, 2009
Yes this IS a call from one of Verizon's "vendors". Don't let their ignorant or lying operators tell you differently. I finally got them to admit it after numerous calls and emails to Verizon's security department. The name of this vendor is Varolii. They are incompetent and call people who aren't late, they call you family members and they call people who don't even have a Verizon phone anymore.

Just google Varolii and you will find pages that explain their business practices such as:
"Varolii Corporation announced Varolii Predictive Analytics(TM), an on-demand service that helps organizations understand, analyze and strategically target more effective customer outreach for collections, customer service and loyalty programs. Combining client data with the behavioral insight gleaned from billions of Varolii-led customer interactions, Varolii Predictive Analytics helps companies identify who to contact, when to contact them, through what channel, using which treatment, and how frequently in order to generate the greatest response. This combined data offers much more than a simple success or failure measurement; it's a complete record of customer interaction and response on an individual level. The application is designed to gain intelligence from these conversations and progressively 'learn' to predict customer behavior. At the highest level, Varolii Predictive Analytics can help companies analyze contact strategy options and select which will work best to solve their specific needs. At a more tactical level, it can help decide such things as an appropriate collection strategy based on Varolii and customer history, including probability to pay, days delinquent, and other metrics for improved results. Varolii Predictive Analytics measures, and then recommends: The optimum messaging, The correct calling frequency to use, and Appropriate self-service or agent-interaction options to offer for maximum customer interaction."

Sounds great doesn't it?

I consider it odd that I do not even use Verizon, yet I have received calls from 206-315-3010, 615-656-5062, and 615-372-2999. These numbers appear on my phone at all hours of the day, including one most recently received at 3AM. I've contacted Verizon to find out what was going on, when I don't even use their service, and they informed me that none of those numbers belong to them. Whether this is true or not has yet to be brought to light, but I have Googled these numbers and came across a lot of sites claiming "phishing scams." Therefore, I will continue to not answer an unknown number on my phone (for if it is someone I know, they'll more than likely leave a message), nor will I ever give out my credit card information over the phone, like one of the numbers asked me to do.

no name; no message. I'm not a Verizon customer, and at this rate, probably never will be!

these are probably contract - private people, who are making money from a marketing programs or other set up, with Verizion, and it is a very common ploy, the phone companies allow this, and we all sufffffffer. there is also a possibility that an off shore or over seas group is set up for use and allowed by the phone company, as well as 800 number access, that "bounce" calls thru the bigger companies systems, all based on greed. money, etc. RECALL THE BAIL OUT OF WALL STREET, THIS IS IT FOLKS, making money anyway they can, get caught, fined, and do it again, and again, and again, totally indifferent, deliberately avoiding laws, regulations, etc.

I am in the Marine Corps and the military terminated my contract with Verizon under enlistment procedure as it was no longer needed. Everything was good and haven't gotten anything in mail but they started calling my fiance who I used as a reference to originally get phone and also my father. Saying I owe payments and I don't even have their service via serviceman opt-out contract. These people need to get their information straight!

this is a third party automated collection agency run out of seattle, and contracted by verizon. As a result of the automation, and simply the policy of the company, people that have no affiliation with verizon receive calls. It is supposed to be about late payments, and you can ask verizon to remove you from their list.
 Aug 07th, 2008
I have received 6 calls within the past 2 days. No message is ever left. This is getting annoying! If it is verizon they'll be happy to know I plan on switching companies as soon as my contract is up- which is very soon.

I just got one of these calls this morning. I didn't answer since I don't answer calls I don't recognize. I don't think it's Verizon though since I don't have Verizon. My brother does, (he doesn't live here) but he's paid up and anyway, why would they call our land line instead of his cell?
 Jun 25th, 2008
verizon needs to get paid!!! lol
 May 06th, 2008
Call came with no name-do not know anyone at this number. Wouldn't give name Call came at 4-28-2008 at 2:19pm

Bill paid up. Some clown calling you for money or account changes. THINK. Do you REALLY want to trust your payment or any information about your account with this 'new number'? Even if they are contracted by Verizon, there's yet another party that is now getting information on your account. GO BACK TO THE NUMBERS YOU USUALLY CALL TO DO BUSINESS WITH VERIZON.
 Apr 23rd, 2008
let's see. I pay thru ONE NUMBER for the past two years. Bill is paid up when I checked last week. So why would I get a call from Verizon from a number Unrecognized? THINK! Bill paid up. Some clown calling you for money or account changes. THINK. Do you REALLY want to trust your payment or any information about your account with this 'new number'? Even if they are contracted by Verizon, there's yet another party that is now getting information on your account. GO BACK TO THE NUMBERS YOU USUALLY CALL TO DO BUSINESS WITH VERIZON.

2063153010 so verizon - call colorado freightways for their bill not me. i dont' have verizon, i don't own or owe their damn bills!!!!!
 Feb 16th, 2008
They have called me several times. I do not and have never had a Verizon phone.
 Feb 12th, 2008
Got called on my Verizon cell twice today by this number (no message) and also my daughter who has an account with T-Mobile that was under my name until she turned 21. If they were indeed Verizon they text you that your bill is overdue and they don't call without leaving a contact message.

And for the dipshit who called himself "enforcer" above and said "pay your bill cheap bastards and you won't have the need for this phone call. I hope your account goes into collection. Typical **********s.", don't act like this is a valid collection agency doing this shit, moron.

This number calls at least once a day. Cannot get a human when I return the call. The message has the sound of urgency and uses the phrase "changes to your Verizon wireless account". A service rep from Verizon said it's not from them. If Verizon has something to say to their customers, they call them on the Verizon line..

This number is registered to a company called XOTexas, from Seattle Washington. This is a scam. Do not call back. Do not even answer those calls in the future.

Because they are calling on my land line I have blocked that number from calling again. Verizon rep also suggested going to '' and entering that number. If calls continue to come in you can report them and they will be fined.

Whats funny is I got a phone call from this number and I do not even have Verizon.
So I would lean more towards it being a scam it comes up on my caller ID as PAR3

People, ignore all these folks on here talking about "pay your bill". I am on the phone with Verizon Wireless NOW and they are opening an investigation. They informed me that they don't even HAVE a Seattle office! On top of that if you live in the Southeast, and have more sense than a rock with eyebrows, and are getting these calls anytime before noon, you would KNOW this is fraud calling because Seattle is THREE hours behind! By law, they cannot contact you before 9AM THEIR time. Which means, if you get a call at 8:04AM, who the hell has office ours in Seattle at 5AM in the morning? Anyways, if you are a Verizon customer, I urge you to call 611 (free call from your cell) and report this. Verizon is a GREAT company and I've been with them 8 years. I've also been late a few times so I can tell you there is no Financial office in Seattle. You would get a call in the AFTERNOON, ONCE or TWICE a day from a number with an (813) area code.

It's been calling me again, and again I havent paid my bill for 2 months. I do believe this is likely some reminder service but it is sort of wierd.
 Dec 04th, 2007
automated call,,,,, verizon wireless
 Nov 20th, 2007
Called twice today--first at 8:00 AM, then at 2:30 PM. I did not answer, and they left no message.

My Verizon bill is paid; if this is Verizon Wireless, they aren't dunning me for money (or shouldn't be).

I have received TONS of calls from this number for the last 3 weeks. I have never answered it because I figure if it was that important they would leave a message, which of course they NEVER do. I don't answer calls I don't recognize so they are pretty much wasting their time calling me. Whoever it is.
 Nov 16th, 2007
when i called it back they claimed to be a message center for verizon for text messages.
 Nov 15th, 2007
The number asked me to call 800-249-2462 to pick up a message from Verizon Wireless regarding my account.

The reference number for the "message" didn't work to pick it up, nor did entering my cellphone number.

Instead, I was referred to another number, 800-382-7114. I called it and it's Verizon Financial Services.

So I take it, the message wasn't working, but it was VW.
 Nov 10th, 2007
Yelled at us not to hang up on them again or else. Calling at all times of day and threatning us.
 Nov 07th, 2007
i've gotten calls from this number for at least 5 days????no idea who it is and my verizon bill is current????
 Nov 02nd, 2007
a clever marketing plan. If you answer, or if you return the call it'll cost you a minute(s) depending on your plan ... lots of minutes = lots of $$$$$$$$$$$$ for verizon.
 Oct 30th, 2007
This number has been calling for days...several times a day. If this is Verizon calling to remind me of a late payment, this is obnoxious enough to make me quit the service. What happened to the text msg they used to send which was a nice reminder. I don't answer calls from numbers i don't recognize. So, they're wasting their time. I agree with person gives off a stalker vibe. How unprofessional. Between this & the latest on the 94,000 numbers big V is on it's way outta my life. I hope they monitor this site.
 Oct 30th, 2007
i dont know who this is or what is there a way to make this number stop calling me? this number is calling me almost every day!
 Oct 30th, 2007
This number calls my cell phone twice a day, every day. I will not answer, since this is obviously no one I know. This has been happening for 10 days in a row now.
 Oct 26th, 2007
thos person asked for naked pictures of my daughter,she's 12. first contacted onaol musio, then goes by Aim screen name prsking... beware!!!!
 Oct 15th, 2007
Verizon letting you know you account is past due and requesting payment.
 Oct 11th, 2007
"pay your bill cheap bastards and you won't have the need for this phone call. I hope your account goes into collection. Typical **********s."

I have a novel idea for you, go f@#k yourself and keep your pathetic thoughts to yourself.

Verizon does not handle billing issues this way. Maybe you are the dipsh@t calling me "enforcer".
 Oct 11th, 2007
I've gotten this call for 3-4 days. I do have VZW but my bill is current. VZW says it's not them.
 Oct 09th, 2007
pay your bill cheap bastards and you won't have the need for this phone call. I hope your account goes into collection. Typical **********s.
