    Just got a call from 206-315-3010, was cooking dinner and missed the call. Anyway, automated female voice stating it was VZW wireless calling to notify me of a change to my account (this was the message left to my Google Voice), mentioned a first and last name which was not me then proceeded to ask for me to press 1 or 2 and enter my cell number, credit card info etc.

    Just wanted to let everyone know in case it hasn't been mentioned. Hope this was the correct forum title to post in.

    Stuff like this happens constantly these days, and frequently if you are listening carefully (assuming you answer the call) you will notice at the beginning of the sales pitch, the solicitor may use terminology like, "I'm calling on behalf of Verizon Wireless", or they may simply lie about who they are and why they are calling.

    Now,the good news is that you can list your cell phone number on the Federal Do Not Call registry, and far fewer solicitations will come if you do that.

    And if the deal sounds too good to be true..........You know the rest of the story.
