Reporting a DoS attack to Verizon

My Netgear router has been reporting DoS attacks for over a week from an address that belongs to Verizon.   They always start around 10:00PM and end at midnight.   Here's an example:

[DoS attack: FIN Scan] (5) attack packets in last 20 sec from ip [68.237.40.84], Monday, Jul 08,2024 00:00:46
[DoS attack: FIN Scan] (5) attack packets in last 20 sec from ip [68.237.40.84], Monday, Jul 08,2024 00:00:20
[DoS attack: FIN Scan] (5) attack packets in last 20 sec from ip [68.237.40.84], Sunday, Jul 07,2024 23:59:53
[DoS attack: FIN Scan] (5) attack packets in last 20 sec from ip [68.237.40.84], Sunday, Jul 07,2024 23:59:26
[DoS attack: FIN Scan] (5) attack packets in last 20 sec from ip [68.237.40.84], Sunday, Jul 07,2024 23:59:00
[DoS attack: FIN Scan] (5) attack packets in last 20 sec from ip [68.237.40.84], Sunday, Jul 07,2024 23:58:33
[DoS attack: FIN Scan] (5) attack packets in last 20 sec from ip [68.237.40.84], Sunday, Jul 07,2024 23:58:06

Does anyone know how to effectively report this to Verizon?  I sent email to abuse@verizon@net and got back an automated response that essentially said they can't respond to every e-mail they get.    

The Netgear community says that Netgear routers are "notorious" for reporting false DoS attacks but these packets are coming from some where.

Thanks.
