Augusta Police Department Warns About Netflix Scam

Netflix Logo

The Augusta police department put out a warning on their Facebook page about a email scam that appears to customers to come from Netflix.

According to the police department’s Facebook page, people have been receiving an email from Netflix asking them to update their membership information. The email looks legit, but is NOT from Netflix. Clicking the link takes you to a website that appears to be Netflix, but is not. It asks for information you want to be sure to protect:

Name on your credit card
Credit Card Number
Card Expiration Date
Card Security Code
Your Social Security Number

Netflix will never ask you for your social security number. In fact, no website should ask for your complete social security number. If you enter the above information, you are redirected to the actual Netflix site and now thieves have all the info they need to steal your identity.

Always look at the URL in the address bar. If it doesn’t start with then you are on a fake site. Don’t fall for it or your personal information and credit numbers could be stolen.
