New Scam Targets Verizon Wireless Customers

Area law enforcement agencies are warning of a new scam where the caller is claiming to be a Verizon Wireless representative. A recent report says the person receiving the call was advised their cell service would be down for repairs, and then they were asked for their Verizon PIN number as well as the last four digits of their social security number. The victim later found several thousands of dollars in unauthorized charges to that account. If you have found yourself to be a victim of this or any other similar scam, authorities are advising you to contact local law enforcement.
