Fraud Department?

I don't know if this message goes here.  I just checked my voicemail about twenty minutes ago and had a message claiming to be from Verizon.  They asked me to call back 866-266-3424 and have my account number ready.  I called the number back and got a message saying, "Thanks for calling Verizon.  Our offices are closed."  I did a Google search for this number and it apears that it is the fraud department.  Is this a real Verizon number?  

 

I can understand why the fraud department might be calling, because after 2 years of only basic local (we were using a VOIP) we moved to unlimited long distance and 300 International Single Rate.  I suspect it is becuse my roommate made an hour worth of international calls yesterday.

Now that it is Monday, give the number a call and find out.

Yes there is such dept within VZ and your scenario fits what that dept was designed for.
