Anyone else get the scam robocall this weekend, purporting to be Verizon Wireless wanting to reward customers with a $154 credit? My wife got one, and so have many others. The instructions say to log-in to vzw154 . com and enter your MyVerizon credentials. Obvious phishing, of course.

What was really funny/strange about the call, my wife's cell is with ATT. It's a work-provided phone. The rest of us are on Verizon, but none of us got the robocall.

I don't think so. They're just betting to find people that are dumber. And I bet they will.

Will definitely get a few gullible people to give up their credentials.
