    If you don't care for the thread, feel free to move on. There's certainly no need to post in the thread to complain about it.

    I wasn't going to say anything further because I don't want sarcasim or anyone being rude. I do call Verizon fraud dept Monday. I emailed a copy of the message that was sent to me. Within 10 minutes of sending the email I was contacted by a level 1 fraud employee. Doesnt matter where or how the message is sent. They take these things seriously. She told me it will be investigated and they do have measures of tracking. She told me this happens more than we realize and they don't laugh at the complaints they receive.
    They are glad to receive complaints regarding their customers. Said its good that customers reach out to them. Today's technology crap happens. Its unfortunate. And there are ppl who fall victim.

    Wow that's more of an insult on top of it being a scam all together.. Going to risk you going to jail for just the price of replacing it and not trying to offer anymore for taking the risk IF you even remotely considered doing it. What's the world coming to.. Sigh..

    I mean no disrespect but any company will say what u want to hear to feel like you are being listened to and what not. They may go forward with it but I don't think they will, it will cost them money for nothing.

    Either way Asurion says they go after fraud to the highest extent of the law.

    lol Me and my dad had some fun with a guy that tried to scam us a little while ago. He called as someone from Microsoft saying he saw we were using non-genuine software and he wanted to get us to fix it.

    Now, I obviously knew this was BS about 5 seconds in but I decided to troll him for the fun of it. I called him out on how they must have a big server to be able to watch millions of PC's all over the world 24/7 to watch for this sort of thing. XD He hung up about a minute later, what a lowlife.

    Good job letting us know about this guy/girl. (Even if some people around here only thank you by trolling the thread.)

    I just wanted people aware. This happens more than we realize. But if anyone ever has this happen it is good to report it. AC banned him. But he could easily take on a new screen name. Just beware! We are an awesome group and we are smart!

    You are smart and know what to look out for. I wish our elder generation wasn't so naive. They are victimized all the time.

    Why do you think I'm always replying to you? Plenty of other people have posted in this thread.

    First a few posts were removed to clean up the situation. Please report anyone contacting you publicly or privately concerning insurance scams, etc. and the moderating staff will handle it. Please don't make it a public affair anymore.

    Second, Android Central doesn't condone anything involving fraudulent insurance scams. Its something we don't want in the forums publicly or privately via PM.

    Third, ohnelson77 (Ray) please check your private messages.

    Have a good night.

    Guessing by the look of his username. His last name might be Nelson. Just an observation. Most people incorporate their names into usernames.

    Fyi, it is cheaper to just get the note 2 new at $80,rather than paying $100 through Verizon asurion, if money is an issue. It does require a pm, so ymmv. And obviously, you would have to sign a 2 years contract

    Here's how I did it TWICE...
    Just got my FOURTH Verizon Galaxy Note 2 at Best Buy for $79 at BB ($129 pricematch + $50 gift card)

    Would love to get another one, but my family share account is at the 5-device limit right now. (one more coming off contract in 2 months)

    probably not... I think Dell's $129 on the VZW Samsung Galaxy Note 2 will only last a few more days.(if not shorter)

    Even if it ends, Amazon has it for $150. Even if not, probably somewhere else would have a promo.
