A Netflix email scam is circulating in Putnam County. Sheriff Robert Langley says several residents have reported receiving well-designed emails that attempt to fool Netflix customers into turning over their credit card details.
The message claims that there is a billing issue that needs to be resolved and contains an “Update Payment” button. It links to a malicious site that looks like a legitimate Netflix page.
If you receive such an email, Langley says not to click on the link and go to the source, straight from your browser. If there is a billing issue, it can be found there. If you think you have been a victim if this scam or any other internet phishing attempt, contact the Sheriff's Office at 845 225-4300.
