Scam Description

I recieved a text message stating that because I was a Loyality customer to Verizon they had paid my bill and If I paid shipping of 7.95 I would receive a genz watch. Now I called to verify if this was true and she said yes. So the watch was delivered and it was a horrible product and I received my credit card statement and it showed a purchase of 99.94 with this number 8556771739, so I called them and told them I wasn’t to be charged for this watch and she said that it was only a trial and I have to pay for it, I told her that is not what I was told and that she scammed me at that point she hung up on me. I then contacted Verizon and they had no record of this and I surely got scammed. Also contacted my credit card company to dispute the charge. They mentioned they were a 3rd party in flordia for Verizon. I do not have the text message because I have been with Verizon for 30 years, When I received the watch I figured the deal was complete.
