These scammers are getting really cleaver. Just received a call for this number, which if you look at verizon's page, it is their prepaid number, but they have arranged the incoming number to LOOK like it is Verizon's.....it is not. DO NOT GIVE THESE JERKS ANY INFORMATION.

My Husband received a call at 3:30 THIS morning from this number, he did not answer because he did not recognize it. I called it this morning and heard the same recording that a lot of the other reports said, Welcome to Verizon, do you have your 10 digit account number.

Had a call from this number saying it was Verizon and my account was frozen for “security purposes”. My account isn’t frozen. It’s clearly a scam!

I received a call from this number saying my account has been not been suspended. The call was an automated call to start with. I did not do anything except hangup and call Verizon Customer Service myself. Verizon blocked this number and gave me their Fraud Dept.

Just received a call from this number about my account being suspended which it obviously was not suspended since they called my number. I contacted Verizon agent who told me that it is a scam call that is being perpetrated by someone spoofing their number.

Received a call from this number saying this is Alex Flint with Verizon, Agent ID 5239. He said someone changed the address on my account to Miami, Florida and ordered a new cell phone. He wanted to know if I authorized this. I said “no” and he said “I’m glad I caught this.” I told him I was calling Verizon direct myself. He said “ why do you want to hang up and call the same number”. I didn’t plan on calling the same number. I plan on calling the actual Verizon #. It’s a scam to get your personal information and probably try and order a new phone for them to be shipped to the address that they changed on your account. Block the number and don’t fall for it!

Received a call from this number to "verify my identity on my Verizon Wireless account". It is a phishing attempt. A foreign sounding guy tried to get my private info to "unlock" my account. Blocked the number.

Was contacted and told that I had a credit due. He asked for my name to verify account. Instead, I asked for his name. After a few requests and repeated interuptions, he gave the name, "John Disoza", although he had difficulty using the English alphabet to spell it out for me. I also asked for his employee number, which resulted in me being put on hold. He came back and said they "cannot provide employee number". I explained that is not how it works, asked to be removed, and hung up after listening to his stunned silence.

Heard an automated message that my Verizon account has been suspended, press 1 to follow prompts, 2 to speak to someone. Was told work on nearby towers caused a problem; they asked for my zip and then said that didn't show up. Asked for address information, I asked for proof they were Verizon...they asked if 5 different addresses were mine...only 1 was, from 5 years ago. And then the call disconnected.

Pretty good scammer. When you call back, it answers like it's verizon, too, so be careful. Of course, I messed with them, providing lots of fake info just because I had 5 minutes to blow, but I would recommend immediately hanging up and blocking the phone number.

This is not Verizon Wireless. This is a scam. This is most likely someone who works / use to work at Verizon Wireless.
If you call the number back you will notice that the on hold music is an old ad.
If you wait long enough, someone from “Assumed Verizon Wireless” will answer.
If you ask for their name, they will say the name of person on the Verizon Wireless account.
Do not pay these people.
If you do, your Verizon Wireless bill wont get paid.
If you do get a call from 971-244-8247. you need to call Verizon Wireless and let them know about the issue.
By calling / contacting Verizon Wireless, this will make Verizon Wireless know about these people.
Below are the only numbers/ways you should call to contact Verizon Wireless.

Contact Verizon Wireless by one of the way below, make arrangements / pay your bill and the calls will stop.
