Netflix Phishing Scam

Please take the time to read this important article.  It seems that on a weekly basis there are different scams coming from firms that appear to come from businesses that we know.  It usually comes in the form of an email from a company – in this case Netflix – and they say that there is a problem with your account – an address change, an expired credit card or something of that nature.  They provide you with an easy link to their website to go and correct the situation.  The problem is, it is not their website.  It is a website that looks identical to the company you think it is.  Once you enter your account information and password, the scammer has it.  They can then go to your Netflix account and login and get your credit card information.  In addition to that, they will also go to Amazon, Wal Mart, Gmail, any other popular place and try to use the exact same user id and password to try to get into additional accounts.  Never click a link in an email like this.  Go directly to the website yourself and then login. 02.28.19
