Police warn of phishing scam with fake Verizon email

Posted: Updated:
YORK, Pa. (WHTM) -

Police are warning of a phishing scam involving an email that appears to have been sent from Verizon.

Northern York County Regional police said the email indicates that the company was unable to charge the recipient's credit card and requests that the recipient click on a link to update their credit card information.

Police said the email is not legitimate.

Those who have followed the link and provided credit card information should check their account for unauthorized usage and cancel the credit card, police said.

Police said anyone who is a victim of the scam, and has had unauthorized charges placed on their credit card, should call 911 to report the scam to their local police department.
