Syracuse (WSYR-TV) – Numerous reports have been coming in from Verizon customers saying that they have received cell phone calls or texts stating they have qualified for hundreds of dollars off their next Verizon bill.
This would be good news, if it were true.
It is not true though. According to Verizon, it is a scam.
The scam directs customers to go to this website: vzw250.com. It looks very similar to the real Verizon website but it is not.
A spokesman for Verizon tells said it is, "Definitely a scam and it has been going on for awhile."
He says customers of other carriers have also been targeted.
The spokesman says when these scams pop up, they work with the FBI to identify the people behind them and shut them down. If there's something you want the Real Deal about, give us a call at (315) 446-9900, or you can e-mail: YourStories@9wsyr.com.
