Scam. The recording when you call it back sounds JUST like the Verizon answer. Beware
Called to say that my account was suspended for verification.
I confirmed with Verizon that it's not their number, it's a scam. They left me a voicemail saying my account suspended for verification.
Scam, said my Verizon account was suspended for verification

They told me to turn off my iCloud and to turn off Find My iPhone!
North Carolina Jun 07th, 2019
it said that i had been accused of crimes and fraudulent activity had been recorded on my social security number and to call them back before they took legal action in a very weird robotic voice that still sounded... human. i'm guessing a scam because i'm barely a teenager and haven't done anything with my social security number.
Phone flagged it as spam. They left a voicemail that sounds like a robot: "To speak to a customer service representative, please press 2!"

My phone galaxy j1 not work on my country i inset my sim but not work i want the code from verozon pelese.fcc ID AJLSM J100VPP
They call me several times too, about my social security will be suspended if I don't take any action. Poor people don't have anything to do with their life,only makes call to bother others.
They called from a unknown phone number, but this is the message I got in voicemail. It wasn’t a person, it was definitely a computer generated voice:
“...Grand jury for a federal criminal offense this is the final attempt to reach you to resolve this issue immediately ____________ to a federal agent callback number 888-294-0641
I repeat 888-294-0641
My sim card is not verizon wireless

Verizon account told me to call to get phone configured after I activated a new Sims card. I can't and haven't been able to download apps the entirety of my plan and am curious as to why that wasn't a part of the initial activation...
They called me twice from the same phone and left a double message at the same time

Bogus Verizon Scam. Government needs to do something to protect consumers. We spent $24 million so far on Mueller; spend it going after these people.
Robo call; 'Your Verizon service has been suspended, press 1 to payment options press 2 for customer service' I pressed 2 was then shortly disconnected. Notified Verizon agent who stated was spoof attempt & Verizon would attempt block on number. FTC complaint also filed. Cell call blocker added number
Said my Verizon account has been suspended. Total scam
Scam about my Verizon account
California Mar 10th, 2019
Claimed to be Verizon. Your account has "been suspended". SCAM!
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.
I forgot my account an i need itbactivated
Don't believe anyone from this number that says your account is blocked until you pay. It's a scam.

recording stated my account was frozen and need to supply them with some info. I hung up.
California Jan 31st, 2019
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.

got two phone calls saying I had been overcharged $29 did I want a credit or a check. I said credit, they asked for my verizon pin, I said that I did not know it and they txtd me with a temporary pin to access my account, I hung up, deleted the txt and blocked the number.
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.

Scam call - pretending to be Verizon
Ouest Haiti Dec 30th, 2017
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.
