NETFLIX users WATCH OUT!!!!!

It has recently been announced that there is a phishing scam going around to NETFLIX account holders.  If you get an email regarding a NETFLIX error, or see a pop up  like the one below, it is a phishing scam.

You will be asked to contact the NETFLIX customer support using the phone number on the pop up, at which time you will be connected to a scammer on the other end of the line.

Take a close look at the URL in the image above.  As you can see it is NOT the NETFLIX domain.  It is “afta3.com”.  This is a clear red flag that you are not really at the NETFLIX website.  For more information please go to the following Malwarebytes website: http://blog.malwarebytes.org/fraud-scam/2014/02/netflix-phishing-scam-leads-to-fake-microsoft-tech-support/

Remember, be safe out there.
