If you’re a Netflix subscriber, you’re on the hit list of cyber-criminals who want into your wallet!

Huffington Post reports some subscribers are being hit with a pop-up phony webpage that looks exactly like Netflix.

When you enter your account info to sign in, you get a message that says, “We have detected unusual activity on this account. To Protect your account for unauthorized use, we have temporarily suspended this username. To regain access to your account please contact Member Services at 1-800-947-6570.”

I should note that the real Netflix customer service number is 1-866-579-7172.

If you call the fake customer service number, you’re told to download special software that is a Trojan virus. It allows the criminals to take over your computer and look for sensitive financial info on it.

Netflix has become so popular that it’s now a big target for crooks. Be very careful out there! If you ever need to call Netflix, make sure you call the right number. Do not respond to anything in any pop up!
