Local police are warning residents of a new internet scam targeting Netflix users directing them to update the financial details of their accounts, according to Greenwich Police.

Police said users should be cautious if they receive an email from the company with the subject line: “Your suspension notification,” and the body of the email informs them that their accounts have been suspended due to a billing issue.

The email then directs recipients to click a link that redirects to a fake Netflix landing page. The fake landing page directs victims to input their user information and billing details in an effort to harvest credentials.

To make sure users don't become victims, police suggest making sure they verify the sender's email address and not to click on any embedded hyperlinks in the message.
