I've received the following e-mail, and my mail program suspects it is a scam. Is It?
Dear Verizon Internet Customer,
At Verizon, we continue our efforts to enhance your online experience as well as ensure ongoing security for our Internet customers. As a result, Verizon Online has modified the way email is handled when sent or received through an email application other than MyVerizon.
If you only use MyVerizon to access your email account, no action is required and you may disregard this email. If you do, however, use other applications to access your Verizon email, such as Outlook Express®, you will need to modify your email settings to take advantage of enhanced security we now offer.
In order to make these modifications, please visit ...//verizon.com/emailsettings for information about the email settings you need to update. Additional information may also be available by going to our online forum at ...://forums.verizon.com/.
Thanks for being a valued Verizon Online customer and we encourage you to act now to ensure your email account has the proper settings on a going-forward basis.
Short story: I have no idea where I should go to report phishing scams specifically involving Verizon.
An hour ago I got a call (I have AT&T wireless service, not Verizon) telling me about "free $36 if you just enter your account information at this website", the website being verizon36.com
Thankfully, I know how phishing scams work, have the Web of Trust addon, and the NoScript addon, so I was pretty safe, but the call was from (800) 922-0204 - a number associated with Verizon - so the number was spoofed.
So, why would I want to bring this to Verizon's attention? I would assume they would have motivation to deal with the maliciously used possession of the domain "verizon36.com". (It was just registered yesterday, by the way, by someone in Santo Domingo. The whois: http://whois.domaintools.com/verizon36.com) If someone were to take the domain veriz0n.com, verizzon.com, verizonvireless.com, and start running phishing scams using the impersonating domain, I would assume they would be interested to know as well.
Essentially, I scoured the site for some place to report phishing scams targeting Verizon customers, and came up empty.
Verizon Online has been made aware of a new phishing scam targeting Verizon customers. These scams attempt to lure customers to a fraudulent web site to input personal information and/or download virus infected programs.
Verizon will never ask for personal or account information by email.
If you receive an e-mail similar to the one below (the content may vary slightly), you should DELETE IT IMMEDIATELY.

Be aware that there is a Verizon wireless phishing scam . Victims get an E mail purported to be from Verizon. It is a bill.
If you get this very official looking E mail, forward it to firstname.lastname@example.org

KaLin I do not have a wireless phone. I can not go to that forum. One of my sub E mail accounts received a phishing scam E mail. Perhaps, you as a forum moderator, would see that this message is conveyed to the wireless forum. I need no help!! I do not pay any bills I have not accumulated. I only wished to inform others. Many of our forum members also have Wireless phones.
We have received two emails indicating we have made a huge purchase on a credit card. We didn't and it was addressed to "Dear Customer"....It also had a huge number of other verizon.net customers as addressees. Has your system been hacked or is the database compromised? How can they get so many addresses in what appears to be alphabetical order?
Got a voicemail today stating that my account could be credited $31 by visiting 31verizon.com and entering my username and password. 31verizon.com is regisitered to someone in the Dominican Republic and was regisitered on 7/3/2014. Looks like a phishing scam and thought I should warn people. Stay classy y'all!
In the past 24 hours, I have received 3 different Phishing scams form "supposedly" 3 banks. Of course they aren't who they say they are. When I try to watn family members of them, I would like to take bits and pieces of them to show people what not to respond to. However, once I try to send them out to friends and family warning them, I can't. Verizon posts an error, rejecting it as spam of some kind. Remind you that my bits and pieces of the original don't have any links in them. Now since I can't send these warnings out, why can't Verizon prevent them from getting to me (or you) when they first come into their system?
