http://www.vz75.com/ Verizon Wireless $75 Scam?

Just got a call from an unlisted caller: 800-000-0000 with an automated system that said to log in to www.vz75.com to claim a $75 discount on my next Verizon Wireless bill.

A simple whois search for the domain gives us this (domain just created... and private):
