Netflix Subscribers Targeted With Phishing

Scammers have found another op­portunity to steal personal information from consum­ers. A new phishing scam has surfaced that is target­ing Netflix subscribers, ac­cording to the Better Busi­ness Bureau. #Targeted users are led to a phony Web page that may resemble the Netflix login page. The Netflix users will enter their account infor­mation and the fake Web site will claim the user’s ac­count has been suspended. A fake customer service number is provided and a “representative” recom­mends the user download the “ Netflix support soft­ware,” which is remote log­in software that gives the fake representative full ac­cess to the user’s computer. “Netflix has a good repu­tation and scammers are taking full advantage of that,” says Steve J. Bernas, president of Chicago’s Bet­ter Business Bureau. #There are three key indi­cators consumers should look for that show an e­mail involved in this scam is not from Netflix: First, the phone number is not Netflix. Instead, the num­ber belongs to a call center in India. Second, the Web page is a pop-up. Third, the “representative” wants to login to your computer via remote software.
