Protecting yourself against unauthorized charges
Bill Block prevents companies from "cramming" or adding services or charges to your bill without your knowledge or permission.
Check your phone bill each month for unauthorized charges.
Beware of sales calls. Know what you are authorizing before they agree.
Read the fine print on all contracts, applications, or contest entry forms you sign. Avoid any that seem vague.
Do not accept collect calls from people you do not know and do not return calls to unfamiliar area codes and numbers.
Beware of faxes, email, voice mail, or pages you receive that ask you to call an unfamiliar area code and number.
Pay close attention to voice prompts when you reach a voice messaging system. You may be asked to accept charges for the call or for other services.
Verizon provides Bill Block for your protection at no charge.
Note Bill Block does not prevent associated toll charges, operator service charges, monthly fees, 900/976 calls, or dial-around charges from your long distance provider.
Contact Verizon to request Bill Block for your account.
