Way to report a fake email from My Verizon?

[ Edited ]

Is there a way to report to Verizon an email that "Says" it is from Verizon?  I received an email claim to be from Verizon about my Verizon Residential account.  One problem, I don't have a My Verizon account for residential services nor to I linve in an area with landline service from Verizon.  

 

This community account is a community only account and attached to a different email address.  The email address in question is attached to my community only account for the Verizon Wireless community, but I have it setup that the email address is hidden.

 

Any thoughts on if I can forward it to somewhere so the spammer can be shut down?

That works if the email is "acting like it came from Verizon.com?

Yep. They'll investigate who sent it and all that jazz.

Well I received a response from the phishing report. Not sure what good it did, because I received another email this morning from Verizon Notification about Restrictive Verizon.com services. I haven't opened it. I do intend to see if I can find out what email address it came from when I look at the properties of the email tonight.
