A lot of my friends are on Verizon Wireless, so I need to let you know about something that you’ll probably overlook in the mail.
Verizon Wireless customers who don’t feel like having their personal information and account information sold to marketers can opt-out by calling 1-800-333-9956. A notice tucked into our recent bill told us we had 30 days from receiving the notice to do it. Considering that Verizon just sold 1,000,000 old accounts to a debt-collecting agency who tried to bully people into pay debts that were already paid off or never incurred in the first place, calling this number might be a wise move.
Bad form! This type of thing should be Opt-In, not Opt-Out.
