STATE WIDE, MS (WDAM) - Attorney General Jim Hood is warning consumers of a recent email scam targeting Netflix subscribers.
After receiving emails claiming to be from Netflix, Mississippians have recently contacted the Consumer Protection Division of the Mississippi Attorney General's Office.
The email states that their credit card information has expired and directs them to update their account by clicking on a link provided. These were fraudulent emails sent by scammers, impersonating Netflix to con people out of their financial information.
"This is an example of the types of phishing scams our office sees on a regular basis," said Attorney General Jim Hood.
