verizon-services@verizon.com - Phishing

Message 1 of 6

I have received email from verizon-services@verizon.com asking me to update my billing information. This looks like Phishing to me.

 

I could not find a more appropriate place to make this input.

You can always forward any suspect emails to abuse@verizon.net and never click on any of the links.

Ive recieved  a few emails from the same verizon-services@verizon.com , and all have been legit thus far (mostly stating a change in service/channels ; however Iam not sure if a "billing" type email should not be coming from verizon-notification@verizon.com instead ? 

 

This based on going through my past and current verizon emails , which I save .

I received the same email which instructed me to open an html file which requested password & billing info.  Looks like phishing to me, too.

Yeh I agree , any type email(s) with an "open file" and/or billing/password request would indicate a phising scam to me also .

 

 

As I stated earlier , so far any emails that Ive received from the verizon-services@verizon.com have been legit , but non have ever come with a "open file" type or asked for a personal account information . 

 

Ive also notice on my legit versions of  verizon-services@verizon.com emails , that the "TO" (to recipiant) always shows the same (verizon generic) name , and in my case always shows TO: {edited for privacy} . If the generic name is differant (or not there) than this than I know its a bad email . Something to check/notice for next time.
