Yup it's Verizon
Verizon collections ignore this call and look foward to having your phone service ended.
Verizon collection department
They start you with decent internet connection speed for the first few weeks or month, then as slow as AT&T's connection, what a bummer and now close to a $100/ mo. For basic service 450 min.
Not a good deal, I am switching over to simple mobile $40. A month same thing as Verizon's.
Verizon wanting their money
Verizon wireless!! Pay your bill!!
Verizon Wireless Finical Services. NOT a Scam. Called 611 From my verizon phone to confirm. and it is verizons number to the collection department it aint no scam!!
its a warning from verizon for customers to pay past due balance before service disconnection
called left no message deff spam.
This is a scam. I do not owe any money to Verizon
Not a scam. Just precaution of disconnection of service unless your past due amour is paid on your account
I just received a call from this number, I didn't answer and they left no message. This is obviously not legitimate, otherwise the number would be identified and a message would be left. I never answer numbers that I don't know.
just received a call no message
Verizon Wireless past due bill be aware !!!
They want their money! Haha
They called me today without leaving a message and they previously sent me a text asking for me to make payment via text. Scam-dileisous
Calls 2-3x a day no message left. How do I block this?
THIS IS A SCAM. Just spoke with Verizon (using 611 number) -- and this is NOT a verizon wireless number. Everyone needs to report this number to Verizon so they can address the FRAUD. Also Verizon can BLOCK this number so you do not recieve additional calls. THIS IS A SCAM!
Calling me 2 times a day. Verizon or scam idk. Ive set to ignore call
Same as all other
calls random times, leaves no message
Calls random hours, calls daily, leaved no message
Wont stop calling me. Called 6x today. Im thinking of dropping them
From Buffalo, NYI've received 5 calls from these people today. It's the first they've tried getting a hold of me.I'm not the primary holder of a verzion account, although I am on a verzion account. I don't plan onpicking up the call as I don't recognize the number. I suggest those who receive a call fromthis number, Do Not Pick Up The Call.
Calls 3 times a day and never leaves a message
verizon? nvr leaves msg
I've been receiving calls from them for the past month, and once when I accidentally answered, it was an actual person on the line. I just hung up and refuse to even bother with them anymore.
1 800 number calling me?
They call an call all day and it needs to stop. I am teaching and it's all day. How do I stop it?
They call sometimes 2 or 3 times a day and never leave a message. Scam? Verizon has NEVER contacted me like this before and would leave a message if they did. Going to set to ignore.
They continue to call me everyday without leaving a message and just the other day they sent me a text asking for me to make payment via text. My gut instinct is if it really was Verizon they would leave a personal message on my phone or contact another number on the same account.
fake verizon scam
junk, setting them to ignore, don't bother to answer.
They call me at least once a day (if not more). It's a pain in the ****. I just have the # on ignore mode for the most part now.
call every day and never leave a message
I just got a call from this number and I know for a fact I do not owe verizon money since I just paid my bill to them yesterday (and it wasn't even overdue...nor did I have any over due calls or notices). I have NO idea what this number is. I picked up, and no one was there.
They keep calling me from this number, I don't pick up since I don't recognize the number. They never leave a message but they call everyday two to three times. Do not pick the phone up if you see this number!
said they were verizon wireless but they were not tried to get me to pay over the phone for my "past due" account
call 1-800-754-0961 immediately. thank you being a verizon wireless customer.
probably verizon sold their directory to a 3rd party?!
2nd time called
Totally a scam. Called me today and claimed I owed a balance and that I needed to pay or our service would be terminated. I asked for a call back number and said that I was suspicious of these kinds of calls because my father-in-law had been the target of a phishing scam not more than a couple months back. I then asked for the number again, and she hesitated, said again that I was in danger service interruption, then finally gave it to me. 800-754-0961. Verizon knows how to reach me and they do it easily via mail or email or text when they need to. These people are crooks, and I can only guess that those who post claiming otherwise here are simply working for these scammers. If you have any doubts that you owe Verizon money, simply call them. Don't trust anyone who calls you to necessarily be who they claim to be.
11/18/09 Rec'd a call from 1-800-745-0961. Called at exactly 9:00am - no message. Just a hang up call.
They call multiple times a day, every day of the week, even late at night. I have to turn my phone off before I go to bed now. Every morning I have a voice mail with the message cut off and giving the 1-800-754-0961 number.This is obviously a scam. If it was legitimate they wouldn't hide behind "Unknown".If you call Verizon using the number given on your bill they will have no idea at all what you are talking about, thus proving the calls you are getting are a scam.Wish i could get these damn things to stop!
This number keeps calling my cell phone and my daughters cell phone.
You guys are Truly paranoid... It is verion. I do have their service andI do use that number if my payment is gonna be late or i have to make payment arrangements...
Again, caller calls my father-in-laws cell phone, identifiy themselves as being from Verizon,asking for me by name, and asking for me to return their call. (That won't be happening.) Father-in-laws phone is not the primary number on my account. (Although I am the Primary Account holder.) Can we say Phishing?
It's not a scam. You people are paranoid. It is Verizon! If you don't have Verizon Wireless then it is entirely possible someone listed your number as an alternative contact number, now, or in the past.
I've gotten a couple of calls from the 949 286-3311 # and all the recording said was to call them immediately at the 1800 754 number. This has never been the way Verizon has contacted me. I do have an account with them. Crazily enough, I was recently in a chat room where this number, and it's questionable validity was being discussed and I actually recognized it! I'm certainly not going to call, but they're using up my minutes! All of these scams, what's next?
I got a call from this number, and I do not have Verizon now, and have never had Verizon so that tells me this number is basically a fraud.
My business got a couple messages to call 800-754-0961 this week. We do not have any wireless service at all much less through Verizon.I called the number back and the first time, there was no greeting other than "enter your mobile phone number." The second time I called, it was answered "Verizon Financial Services." The rep said that someone by the name of Javier Ramos gave them my number as their home #. I assume that Mr Ramos is behind on his bills because I have been getting other collection calls for him as well.The rep said they would take the number out of the account. We'll see. They did not ask for any personal information at all though.
this is verizon wireless. Called from a landline and its the financial services number
Got the same BS as everyone else - this is NOT Verizon wireless - I checked before I called the #.
I also received this phone call from 949-286-3311. Claiming they were from Verizon Wireless.Once I took that call I got suspicious. I did not release any information.I told them I would contact them myself, I ask for the ph #. He gave me #1800-754-0961. I'm glad I check here first.
Rcvd this call on my home phone every other day for the last 2 weeks. This is a canned recording from "Verizon Wireless" calling us about our account. Verizon does not have our home phone number and we made sure of that when we got it (even though Verizon pressed us and pressed us for it we never gave it up). Another site I visited showed this number as a phishing/scam number. Verizon contacts us by mail for anything regarding our account, so these calls are an aggrivating bunch of baloney.
i got this call too. first i thought ok, they just stated the time and number. the guy talking sounding kinda wierd so i googled it. and got this info. thanx.
From the other website on this, it's pretty clear that this is a phishing scam. Do not call the 1-800 number back or give any personal details away. I was called by these scumbags yesterday (May 5th, 2008). Luckily I googled the number before bothering to call them.
Yeah, it is Verizon Financial.I went over on minutes and I refuse to pay my whole bill in 1 month......they can kiss my......I will use the fax #.Good luck everyone!
I too got a call that the only part that was left was the 800 number.it said it was from Verizon financial services and then asked me to enter my mobile phone number a number of times. I ignored that and finally got a person who could not tell me who was using this company number because"it's illegal" even though they called here but ssaid she'd delete this number off as a contact number.Thanks for the info!
Are you guys sure? I got a call from them and I have no service with Verizon Wireless at all
All the 949 numbers listed are from Verizon Wireless Financial Services. If you owe them money even when your service is still active the harass the hell out of you. After demanding that they stop for over 6 months I got nothing. The supervisor even lied to me about them having a fax number. All I would get in response was an explination of why the calls were happening. One day I some how got the manager at one of the stores to call the number and request the fax number for me. I have it. The fax number to Verizon Wireless Financial Services is 1-908-306-5324. Fax them over a written letter asking them to stop calling. Include your number or account number. After recieving the fax, by law they must stop and they can be sued.What a great class action lawsuit this would make huh?
I just receivied a call from 949 286 3311 and a message was left for me to call 800 754 0961. I am so glad i checked out this number before calling. Thank you for this information
I also received a call from 949-286-3311 and the voice mail message told me to call 800-754-0961 regarding my Verizon service. Very suspicious...
they call me everytime i need to pay my bill. and it always works. its just telling you that you need to pay
I received a call from this number (8007540961) and spoke with someone who claimed to be from Verizon Wireless. Upon questioning the person calling, several red flags were raised. (I called Verison Wireless and this number is NOT associated with Verizon Wireless.) In fact the person who called stated that my account was past due and that the due date was such and such date. I knew better since I recently made a payment and the account is current. When I questioned if this person was in fact from Verizon Wireless, he stated that he was because he had my password. The password he gave me was not correct. Second red flag. I told this person that I will contact Verizon Wireless to clear this. He then stated for me to return his call at the 800 stated above. Third red flag. DO NOT GIVE ANY OF YOUR INFORMATION OUT TO THIS NUMBER, NOR DO NOT CONTACT THEM. This is an attempt to gain your personal information. I hope this helps.
just got this call and it sounded pretty suspicious i tried to ask for a lil bit more info. and the call was disconnected so i would not recommend calling it back this is the number it gave me 1-800-754-0981 no company specified she just said "wireless account call back and we'll help and verify your wireless account"
Verizon financial department
I keep getting this call but my the voicemail message is only the last part stating the times and the #. They keep calling me!
