Greenwich Police are warning Netflix users to be aware of an internet scam directing customers to update the financial details of their accounts.
The subject line is “Your suspension notification,” and the body of the email informs victims that their accounts have been suspended due to a billing issue.
The email directs recipients to click a link that redirects to a fake Netflix landing page.
The fake landing page directs victims to input their user information and billing detains in an effort to harvest credentials.
Police suggest protecting yourself by:
• Recognizing that this may be a scam
• Verify the sender’s email address from a trusted source
• Do not click on embedded hyperlinks in email messages
