Verizon Strangely Helpful

Verizon is inviting people to call in and get their calling plan reduced.

Two days ago customers received an email exhorting them to, “Call today for a FREE Price Plan Analysis to make sure you’re still on the best plan for your needs.”

The number is 1-800-735-6591. We would call it and record it and see what it’s all about but we just cancelled our Verizon account and moved to Cambodia, so, ya know.

Source email inside for no special reason.

UPDATE: For at least one reader, calling the number above only exposed him to a series of 3 upsells. No discounts or ways to save money were offered.


Very suspicious.
