    Nice looking site too... always check the url. But I can see how this would work with huge chunk of users.

    I think the original text is a bit fishy too. Doesn't all those "silhouette heads" at the top of the text signify that it was sent to multiple people. If they were a bit smarter and wanted it to look consistent, the message should have read you are 1 of 10,000 lucky individuals to get a credit.

    Just wondering what these individuals gain by having the password to your account. For instance, when you call verizon support they verify your name and a password prior to giving you any service.

    I received a call a while back from a Verizon "rep" claiming that I can save some money on my bill. Natrually, I am always for saving money so I continued to listen.

    She asked me to verify the name and password on the account so she can get things started. I obliged with her request. She then told me she needed to place me on a brief hold while she accessed my account.

    That brief hold consisted of me sitting on the phone for about 3-5 mintes and then eventually hanging up because I didn't hear a sound, thinking that the line may have disconnected.

    I didn't think anything of it and didn't think to call back Verizon and continued on with my life. Nothing seemed to have changed on my account. Haven't been in touch with Verizon since the incident.

    Also, this was a week after Verizon sent out a text message informing customers that they were offering a a promotion for more data for less money. The text said something like reply back with ok to upgrade. I did not reply back, rather, I called them personally and got the upgrade in data.

    So again, I thought nothing of this mysterious phone call until a couple of hours after and then just forgot about it until I saw this post today.

    Any information would be greatly appreciated.

    Learn from my mistake I guess and double check with the actual Verizon reps prior to disclosing any info.

    I got a call from an 800 # several times over the last couple weeks. Today was the first time I was able to get a person. It was a guy from vzw loyalty. He didn't ask for any information and already had access to my account. He was calling to see if there was any way to save me money. No problem with that call. I got the same text about the data you referred to during the summer. I too called them and verify it and accepted that way.
