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?

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.
