Hi all - I received a text message from (855) 692-7999 saying that there was some suspicious activity on my account and for me to SIGN IN at vzwresponse.info. I didn't, of course, because I think it's phishing (grammar seems off, message below is verbatim). Anyone else get this?
Valuable Verizon Consumer we encountered some suspicious activities on your account Please confirm your ownership by Sign In https://vzwresponse.info
I would have flagged that as suspicious too. Did you forward the message to SPAM (7726) to report it to VZW?
I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.
When I get something like that I use https://www.whois.com/whois/vzwresponse.info to look up who owns the domain name. Here is what it shows for vzwresponse.info, just a little suspicious:
Domain Name: VZWRESPONSE.INFO Registry Domain ID: D503300001182163991-LRMS Registrar WHOIS Server: whois.namecheap.com Registrar URL: www.namecheap.com Updated Date: 2019-11-02T21:10:40Z Creation Date: 2019-11-02T21:10:21Z Registry Expiry Date: 2020-11-02T21:10:21Z Registrar Registration Expiration Date: Registrar: NameCheap, Inc Registrar IANA ID: 1068 Registrar Abuse Contact Email: @namecheap.com
That is definitely concerning, I completely understand! Your security is one of our top priorities! I would recommend blocking the phone number through your phone, and deleting the text message. Any way you would like to contact us would be found here: www.vzw.com/support/contact-us . I hope this information is beneficial. MichelleH_VZW
I sent an email to the registrar of the domain to report this and here is their response:
