Verizon started censoring mails

Any mail that has a link is automatically rejected as spam.

This is going viral in forums and blogs, and evidently is completely true.

Verizon has begun censoring emails SENT by customers; ANY email containing ANY hyperlink, is auto-rejected as “SPAM” even if it is related to your business dealings or research!

It began on or about October 27, 2015 when a customer of Verizon FiOS tried to send an email reply to someone as part of an ongoing conversation. In the e-mail was a link to a story on the Internet that the Verizon FiOS customer had previously been discussing with his client. Strangely, the e-mail was rejected seconds later, when the customer received an email saying:

Your message did not reach some or all of the intended recipients.

Subject: I took the liberty of

Sent: 11/2/2015 8:40 AM

The following recipient(s) cannot be reached:

‘Ronald G. Russo’ on 11/2/2015 8:40 AM

554 5.7.1 The message you attempted to send was determined to be spam. Please visit http://www.verizon.net/spamfaq for more information.

Clicking on the link within the rejection notice took the Verizon FiOS customer to a web page wherein Verizon described how to try to get this changed. After following the procedure outlined, and waiting about an hour as instructed, the Verizon FiOS customer tried once again to send the exact same email. It too, was rejected automatically.

Over the course of the next week, this type of auto-rejection took place more frequently, in emails between the Verizon FiOS customer and his mother, his attorney, his business clients. This prompted the Verizon FiOS customer to engage in a CHAT with FiOS customer Service.

In chat #11031512909 which took place on November 3, 2015, Verizon’s customer service tech named “Jaweed” explained that the new SPAM system treated any email containing a hyperlink as “SPAM.” When the Verizon FiOS customer made clear he did not pay Verizon to interfere with his communications, or pay Verizon to annoy him, Jaweed escalated the CHAT to a supervisor named “Kirin.”

Unhived mind comment: They can kill the web with this, and prevent any meme from going viral with ease. Just take linking out of e-mails and they can easily body slam the web. Just wait for spam filters to do this also, it already has been happening with this web site for years but for Verizon to do this as a carrier is an entirely new step. Heads up!

My Comment:  It isn’t enough that Verizon was caught spying on its customers and turning over data to the DHS?  Why would anyone still be with this company???
