New Verizon refund scam
I got a new scam in the mail today.
Most are easy to spot but this was very innovative for a stupid crook.
It looks like it is from Verizon about my old account.
It says the refund (hahaha) check they sent me has not been cashed and want me to say if I did receive it or not, cashed it or not, and if I want a new one. This so the funds will not be transferred to the state.
No name, no telephone number.
It is from Verizon Treasury Operations
1717 Arch Street, Floor 25 east
Philadelphia, PA 19103-2713
The problem is that the account is closed and prorated and adjusted on the last bill, and then they send one last bill with zero balance or any other payment that was added.
This dumb crook has spent $1.50 and an hour of time for nothing and is now in big trouble.
Do the Math
