Verizon gives ‘free gift’ to customers – their phone numbers to credit bureaus

(via IP)

According to a Boston Globe article, Verizon is giving out customers payment information to the big 3 credit bureaus.

A spokesman described it as ‘a free gift to the public’, and then said it was thought up by their bill collection department as a way to spur customers to pay on time.

The swellest part of the ‘free gift’ is that (even if you’re paying them for an unlisted number!) your phone number shows up on the credit reports.

Hey, Verizon customers, bend over and get your free gift!
