That is correct.

In this type of situation, you would of been a minor during the time of service. Most of the time its a family member that turned on service in your name and social. (most of the time its your parents because their credit is bad)

So dont sweat it...if you dont mind filing fraud then do it. If not, you are stuck with the bill, see if your family can help ya out.

That is the epitome of Verizon. If Verizon were a government, it would be about like one of the governments from a country you see on CNN as a threat to world peace, that does not use reason (only force) when negotiating with others. Verizon is a complete travesty to the human community. Your incident with this sick and very sad entity - "Verizon" - tells more than you know. If you are up for it, you should fight this and aim to punish this "Verizon" to the fullest extent of the law and principles of media interest and by doing so being doing society and your fellow human community members an amazing service and benefit. You could also gain some favourable recompense, as well.

My wife experienced a similar issue with Verizon in Pennsylvania. When we ran her credit to purchase our house, a Verion bill showed up on her credit report. The account was opened when she would have been about 7 years old. We contacted a Verizon representative and explained the scenario. Long story short, we were informed by Verizon that we would need to seek legal consul to correct the matter if we refused to pay it. In the state of Pennsylvania, and I believe in all states, you can not legally hold a minor accountable for a "contract" unless there was an adult co-signer on the agreement. This was not the case and obviuosly she did not open a phone account at 7 years old. It was clearly a mistake. It wasn't until they were sent certified letters that informed them of the intent to sue that the issue was corrected. We never actually received confirmation from them, however about 2 weeks after the letter was sent I called them and they couldn't find any record in the system regarding the account. It was as if it never existed!
