Verizon Customers Hit With Bogus Phone Orders

A Denver TV station is reporting that they have received over 70 reports of Verizon customers who have been targeted by hackers who have masqueraded as them and ordered new iPhones shipped to out of state addresses.

Verizon claims that they have not been breached and that could be true. ┬áIt could be as simple as people guessing these customer’s passwords or resetting the passwords and then ordering phones.

For the customers, it is a very time consuming task to undo the damage and some of the customers reported that their phone plans were changed and they are having problems getting their plans restored to the old plans because they were grandfathered in.

If you are a Verizon customer, I recommend you watch your account for unauthorized changes.
