Net­flix email scam

Paisley Daily Express - - Front Page -

Po­lice in Pais­ley are warn­ing Net­flix users to be aware of a new email scam.

Cus­tomers of the pop­u­lar on­line stream­ing ser­vice are be­ing asked to delete a re­al­is­tic look­ing mes­sage im­me­di­ately.

The dodgy email pro­vides a link to a web­site pur­port­ing to be the Net­flix web page and leads to a le­git­i­mate look­ing site.

Users are then asked to put in their pay­ment de­tails which po­lice say al­lows crim­i­nals to steal cash from bank ac­counts.

A Po l i c e S c o t l a n d spokesman said: “Our ad­vice, as with all phish­ing emails, is to delete it im­me­di­ately, do not click on any part of the email.

“If you wish to check the ac­count men­tioned in the email then do so by go­ing di­rect to the Net­flix web­site and log in, do not fol­low the link on the email.”
