I got 14 of these over the past 2 days. I’d hope that anyone who gets emails from Verizon would see immediately that these are fake. While they used the Verizon logo and colors, the logo is blurry, the font is wrong, the From: addresses aren’t at Verizon domains, and the English is tortured (opening line: “CONSIDERABLE ACCOUNT NOTIFICATION FROM VERIZON WIRELESS.”).
The senders have been:
Account Notify [firstname.lastname@example.org]
Account Notify [email@example.com]
Account Notify [firstname.lastname@example.org]
Account Notify [email@example.com]
Account Notify [firstname.lastname@example.org]
Account Notify [email@example.com]
The subjects have been:
Recent Notification in My Verizon
Recent Document in My Verizon
Recent Information in My Verizon
New Notification in My Verizon
New Information in My Verizon
The text is similar in each one, though the intro text and account numbers have varied. Some even use different fonts. Here’s a sample:
