Netflix Users – Beware of Scam
Written by Andrew-Rossi on November 29, 2017
As the weather cools down and night falls earlier, many of us enjoy curling up in front of our computers watching Netflix. But if you received an email saying your account was disabled, you may be the target of a scam.
Scam emails that look like they’re coming straight from Netflix are asking customers to update their payment information. According to a report on CBS.com, customers are told there was a billing error, and are asked to either email their billing information, or click on a link to enter it. The email even includes “copyright” dates — but the notice is not coming from Netflix.
The link included in the email connects to a fake website that asks users to enter personal details such as first and last name; date of birth; billing address; name on their credit card; credit card number, expiration date and security code.
If you are a recipient of one of the emails, company officials warn that you should not reply with your account information and do not click on the link. Netflix says it will never ask users to send personal or payment information via email.
