Scammers Attempt to Use Netflix

Netflix continues to grow in popularity, and that means cybercriminals are looking for ways to scam people using Netflix as the cover.  Some of these scams claim you need to update your payment information. Others might try to trick you into downloading software for a cheaper version of Netflix.

Only download Netflix software from the Netflix website or official app stores. And always go to these websites directly – do not click on a link in an email to get there.

If you receive an email that appears to be from Netflix, proceed with caution.  Do not click on any links or open any attachments in the email.  Instead, go to the Netflix website directly using your browser.  From there, you can check your account and payment status. You can also call their customer service if needed using the 800 number you found on their website.
