Cybercrooks have compromised websites and altered them to serve visitors nasty pieces of malware.
Commtouch Café provides a sample email that bears the subject Thank You for your Verizon Wireless Payment. The message informs recipients that their bill payment has been applied to their Verizon Wireless accounts.
This is not the first time in the past month when we see scam emails that point users to malware-infested sites. The bottom line is that no matter which company the emails purport to originate from, always think twice before rushing to click on links. For quite some time now, Verizon Wireless has been waiving activation fees for devices purchased with an installment plan, but things are changing.
The Big Red carrier has confirmed that, beginning Sunday, November 15, it will charge a $20 activation fee for handsets that are purchased with a device installment plan of up to 24 months.

Serve, by American Express, is Verizon Wireless' new approach to the payment method, and will soon be integrated on wireless phones and tablets.
Over the coming months, Verizon Wireless customers will be able to establish Serve accounts that will enable them to make payments and redeem offers for goods and services directly from their mobile phones and tablets using Serve.
Serve simplifies the online checkout experience by authenticating a mobile number, then allowing a customer to make a purchase on-screen.

The two companies are also working with Payfone to support Serve checkout on Verizon Wireless devices. It's hard to say if this kind of thing will cross carriers and hit up the other guys, but surely they're behind the scenes pushing for just that. Android users on AT&T and T-Mobile have been able to purchase apps from Google Play and have them billed to their mobile account for a while. That's good in some ways because if you lose your phone, whoever finds it can't charge huge amounts of money to your mobile account. To lure users to these sites, the masterminds of the scheme are spamming internauts with bill payment emails that pretend to originate from Verizon Wireless. Recently, we’ve also covered a similar plot that relied on the name of AT&T Wireless. According to Verizon, this cost will cover the costs associated with adding a line to an account.
Serve is listed as a next-generation digital payment and commerce platform, and in the coming months it will hit "select" devices on their network. Verizon Wireless customers who use Serve can expect to buy goods and services on their mobile phone in just a few clicks. Payfone's pre-authorization and intelligent routing features will help Verizon Wireless customers who use the Serve application make mobile payments simply and securely.
Customers on Verizon Wireless didn't have that capability, they instead have to use a credit card to pay for apps. This means that you can now purchase your favorite apps, music, and other content and have the purchase price added to your wireless bill each month.

If you're afraid a child with an Android phone on your account might take advantage of carrier billing to make unauthorized purchases, you can block web purchases for your account using the Verizon Wireless website. Merchants who accept Serve mobile payments will enjoy a streamlined option for processing and settlement. We mentioned a few weeks ago that carrier billing was coming to Verizon Wireless for Google Play purchases.
There are no hurdles to jump through on the user end in to set up carrier billing, you simply have to choose that payment method when you purchase an app or other content. That means that each month you can't charge any more than $25 worth of digital content to your mobile phone bill.

American Express and Verizon Wireless will also collaborate to source, distribute and simplify redemption of online and mobile offers with participating merchants through the use of the Serve account. For example, as customers redeem certain offers or coupons using their mobile phones, the credit may automatically appear in their Serve account.
