"Don't click the links", police warn of Netflix scam

A new Netflix phishing scam is circulating, and this one was reportedly sent to an officer at the Solon, Ohio Police Department, who doesn't have an account.

Attention Netflix customers: don't be fooled by an email claiming to be from the streaming service. "We'll suspend your membership if we do not receive a response from you within 48 hours". "We'll try again, but in the meantime, you may want to update your payment details". "Criminals want you to click the links, so that you voluntarily give your personal identifying information away". They said the biggest clue it was a scam was because they didn't have an account. It is very successful.

Netflix has a help section on its website dedicated specifically to suspicious email and text messages that customers might suspect is fraudulent. "Don't put your guard down", a police station in OH said.

Police say if you are unsure if the email is legitimate, "contact the source of the email by another method that you trust to make sure your accounts are maintained". They could lead to websites that install malware into your computer.
