Was an automated thing from Verizon telling me what time technician will arrive today. I had arranged a visit to set up internet.
District of Columbia 3days
This number just called saying they are from Verizon and told me they will credit $99 to my account. They asked for my pin or the last for of my social security number. Its a scam - they don't have an identifying agent number and when the caller transferred me to their supervisor, the supervisor was right next to them. What? Super scam, heavy accent, not very professional - dead giveaway.
A man with a very heavy Indian accent told me he was from Verizon and I was entitled to a $99 credit for being such a longtime customer (I've been with Verizon for 2 months!). Then he proceeded to ask me for my account number and pin. When I questioned why he needed both numbers, he hung up on me. I called Verizon customer service and they said they've had numerous calls regarding the same number...it's a scam!
Claimed he was from Verizon, had a very heavy Indian accent. He told me I qualified for a $99 rebate, I just needed to verify some information. I said that if he was really from Verizon he would have known that I am not the primary account holder. He told me it was the wrong number and hung up.
Just got a phone call and same offer
Legit. Robot survey about recent service technician visit. 2 minutes to answer questions using keypad.
They wanted my account pin number so they could credit me a $99 rebate. Said I was 1 of 12,000 customers to get rebate.
This person told me that I was getting 99.00 dollars from Verizon and in order to get the money I needed to provide him my Verizon PIN code then I told him no way Jose. Watch out for this kind of animals

Same idiot Alan Parker with a heavy Indian accent states he is calling from Verizon. Ridiculous!
just got a call from this number a guy who sounded Indian calling himself Alan Parker - he said it was a security issue and I should get in front of my computer so he could take me thru it; I told him I wasn't able to do that right now and he said can you get to your computer. He just didn't sound real and I had no reason to expect a security update from Verizon. That's not how my computer works. I told him I didn't believe him and a few choice words and hung up. Blocked.
called march 23 no message I phoned back asian woman who spoke very poor english said she needed more information I refused-I did phone verizon and informed then- this morning again same thing call came in no message- now that I know fo sue because verizon didnt confirm my suspicions I will block this number
How do the store my internet
I just received a call from this number same experience as below when the Asian speaking person said he was with Verizon and was trying to offer me 99.00 credit off of my internet account because I've been a customer for so long. I have never had Verizon internet account however he needed to verify my personal information before proceeding. NOT in this lifetime. I hung up and reported it to Verizon
Called just after 8am on a Wednesday. Scammers usually don’t call me this early. Caller-ID said Verizon. Let it go to machine. Left no message.
Fraud alert!! This is not a Verizon number. Block this number and report a scam. When I asked the caller where exactly are you calling from because I am sitting at a Verizon location right now. He got upset and said to me, "I don't know what the hell you're asking me. Bi**#! Then hung up.
Received call, didn’t recognize number, let it go to voicemail and they didn’t leave message.

We are receiving calls from this number every 20 minutes with a recording saying something about our internet service. We have nothing to do with Verizon. Spoke to someone at Verizon who sounded surprised. He said he would have their engineer look into it. Since calling still received 2 more calls within the hour.
Creepy person called using this number and left voicemail saying, "I love you" and using my first name.
Verizon. Left me a message as a follow-up to a call I had made to them a week ago. I lost Internet service, and called to get it fixed. According to the message, this call was a follow-up to make sure my issue had been resolved.
It’s not a scam are you all serious? I called Verizon customer service and we got disconnected and the same guy called me back from this number.
I got a call from this number. Indian guy said he was calling from Verizon about my bill. I said really? What call center do you work at? He said Verizon. I said which call center location? I work for Verizon Security and want to call your boss on our internal network. He immediately hung up on me.
Supposedly someone from New Mexico was attempting to login into our account. Called back to Verizon's real support phone number, and they have no record about this.
This is a robo call. I have a phone that asks the caller to press a number and then say their name, and if they do not comply the call is disconnected. If it is a real Verizon number, the company will have to have a real person call me and either be answered, go to recorder or voicemail. I never get spam calls with this phone and my phone never rings unless it is a legitimate caller. Too many spoofed numbers in addition to real numbers and names (company names) that are used by scammers. You would think that by now service providers would be able to block calls not coming from real numbers or prevent spoofed numbers altogether.

I didn't pick up, and no voicemail left.
This is a scam number. Looks like Verizon is calling you offering you a credit on your account when in fact they are trying to hack your account

Got a call from woman with Indian accent. Claimed someone had tried to add two lines and an IPhone X to my account. Wanted me to enter a pin number to cancel order. No way Jose (or Dopindra, in this case)

Someone has called me every day of this week from this number but never leaves a voicemail. I figured it was BS since they never leave a message
Their new Verizon related spoof is that they are updating he platform overnight and you may experience some delays with calls and messages. And if they don’t confirm with you your cell phone might not work after the changeover. The guy said I could confirm his identity at any Verizon store and gave me some kind of ID number. When I said hold on and was silent for a second so I could google this supposed update he hung up on me.

Called to offer me a special deal for being "a good customer for 24 month." Poor robot English, can't be a legit call. I hung up on them - beware if you do call the # back it does say it is verizon

It's not Verizon, beware. The Indian guy asked to connect to my computer so he can install some updates, I'm not stupid. The real Verzion numbers are 800.225.5499 and 800.922.0204

i got a call from this number said it was verizon but I did my research and its a spoof number to make it look like its verzion .
just happened to me - Caller ID said Verizon - person called, had an accent, said i have a credit - long story short when I asked if i could call them back - they hung up - The number WAS a VERIZON number - when I called back it WAS Verizon - be careful people these people are the lowest of low -
Lady with Indian accent called and said I overpaid by $29 and it was Verizon's mistake. Did I want it on my Visa, checking account or on my bill? I said put it on my bill but 1st I need to know EXACTLY what the $29 was charged for. She just kept saying it was a mistake on their part. Knowing that a company would have to tell you what they overcharged you for, I kept pushing. She finally hung up. Why do they even try?
Scam. Caller offered rebates for being a good customer. I checked with Verizon, and they indicated this was a scam and blocked this number for me.
A scammer called me, telling me that I overpaid my Verizon bill and was due a credit. They asked me to verify my pin and address. It was an Indian accent. I didn’t give them any info but they still managed to hack into my Verizon account and placed an order. Thank goodness for their new system that helps to detect these fraudulent charges.
This is a real Verizon number but it's A scammer is spoofing the Verizon phone number. 1st call they offered to take $100.00 off my bill for being a loyal customer then the guy asked me for my name. I told him if he was actually from Verizon then he already had my info, the guy got mad and used some Vulgar language, and I hung up on him. Then this morning the number called again and when I answered all I heard was Good Bye and disconnected. Scam they are trying to seal personal information

I keep getting calls from this number.
the message is something about an account to allow collect calls from a correctional facility aren't working.
and for someone to call them back. And that they "setup an account with us" and that its not working.
I have no idea what they are talking about. I never called them back, Im sure this is a scam.

This is a Verizon follow-up service call. If you call for any type of service, they will call to ensure you were satisfied with the service you received. Not aware of anyway to stop them from calling as I selected that I didn't want follow-up during the prompts.
This number I suspect is fake
If you receive calls from (800) 837-4966,and then they hang up you can call or write them at: Frontier Communication, 119 North Commercial,St., Bellingham, Wa 98225
Headquarter's phones 360-676-1100
They are a long distance phone service company.
I went this route to get them to stop calling me and leaving messages on my machine like, "Hello. Hello, Hello, I am with Chase, then hang up".

This was a call from Verizon about the system being down at my house. The service tech was calling to see he would be at my house in 20 to 30 minutes.
WE ARE RECEIVING CALLS FROM THIS NUMBER CONTINULY, SEVERAL TIMES A DAY AND ALL DAYS OF THE WEEK. WE DO NOT USUAL;LY ANSWER 800 CALLS.

I had work done on my dsl line because of at least two loop problems this year. This number is 1-800-VERIZON. On my VoIP system, caller id with toll free area codes are blocked due to too many telemarketers and charities calling with toll free area codes. So if they need to talk to me, don't use a toll free area code as the caller id. Or respond to one of my emails. Actually, since I get dsl from a reseller, I feel compelled not to return any of Verizon's calls, and work with the reseller directly.
My Mother is Harrisomburg health&Reph. they changes her room from 50 to 32,I called to have it change to 32 the next day they change it back to 50A now I can't raech. Thank you. My name is Bessie Graves(350-40980
