    Verizon giving 10.00 away

    Advertisement



    well just got a MMS from a friend on Verizon, saying if you forward this to 10 people verizon will give you a 10.00 dollar credit and as soon as you send to the 10th person they will send you a email to confirm the 10.00 to your account? im with tmoble, so i dont really care but does this sound like a scam or something. anybody else gotten this? and buy the way it had the Verizon logo as the 1st page...

    Nothing more than spam! It's just like the messages you get on things like Yahoo and MSN messengers. Basically junk mail.

    That works fine for unknown spam senders but not a very good option if its a friend.
