Verizon Internet Services

Last night I was trying to contact Verizon to report an abuse case:

$ whois 108.1.192.xxx | egrep 'Name:|Email'
OrgName:    Verizon Internet Services Inc. 
NetName:    VIS-BLOCK
OrgAbuseName:   VIS Abuse 
OrgAbuseEmail:  abuse@verizon.net
OrgTechName:   Verizon Internet Services 
OrgTechEmail:  IPNMC@gnilink.net
Today, I see that the OrgAbuseEmail has been changed to security@verizon.net and when Cc'ing IPNMC@gnilink.net my MTA returns:
 > The message has not yet been delivered to the following addresses:
 > 
 > host mail.gnilink.net[199.45.47.29]:
 > connection to mail exchanger failed with timeout
 > host mail.gnilink.net[199.45.47.10]:
 > connection to mail exchanger failed with timeout
Oh well....

Update:
$ date

$ whois 108.1.192.xxx | grep OrgAbuseEmail
OrgAbuseEmail:  abuse@verizon.net
...wtf? Are they changing their abuse contact every day now?
