Netflix scam

There's a new one going around trying to get your personal info, this time it looks like it's from Netflix. They say your account has been suspended until you update your information. Normally, I wouldn't have fallen for it, but I'm changing credit cards, so I figured they tried to charge my old one and it, of course, didn't go through.

But when I saw they were asking for my SSN, I got out of there quick!

It really does look like it's from Netflix, though, so I thought I would post this warning.

Sadly, it really is the older generation that falls for these.

I just got a similar scam from TD. Since I bank with TD I thought it was legit...luckily I always check the 'from' email address! e.email.td@email.com is NOT an official TD email account!

Thanks for the 'Heads up' dog gone scammers....

To get these rats,* the government has it's own hackers to hunt them, right?

*purely an analogy, no offense intended to rats or rat owners.
