    Thousands Getting Fake Verizon Wireless e-Bills; One of the Best Phishing Scams Yet

    Thousands of Verizon Wireless customers are getting phony e-Bills that claim to be from the wireless phone company, but in fact come from one of the most sophisticated phishing scams seen yet. The Better Business Bureau reports scores of complaints from across the country, with bills looking nearly identical to e-mails sent directly from Verizon Wireless.  Only the amounts have been changed — boosted in some cases to more than $1,200.  Unwitting customers who click on the e-mail link are invited to make payment arrangements with any major credit card, which ends up in the hands of the scammer. WCPO in Cincinnati reports this scam almost fooled some Verizon Wireless customers. If the scammer was a little less greedy, it might have worked. (2 minutes)
