Verizon stiffed me :(

Hello Everyone


I settled with verizon wireless, and I have the letter from them saying that my account will be considered "PAID IN FULL"


Today I received this alert.

The negative referenced would be due to the added late. Absent a PFD, they always add a late in the month you paid it off or settled it. Start GWing.
