Netflix customers beware–a new online phishing scams is targeting people’s bank accounts.

Customers report receiving an email that looks like it is from Netflix. It claims there has been a billing error and payment information needs to be updated.

  • Never click on any links or open any attachments in an email or text message you received unexpectedly, regardless of the source.
  • If you suspect an email or text message is not from Netflix, do not reply to it. Follow the steps below to forward it to us.

The company says if you clicked the link and provided any personal information, you should immediately change your Netflix password and contact your financial institution.
