If you’ve got Netflix be aware of this scam!


By now most people have heard of the Microsoft Tech Support scam. You get a random phone call to inform you that your computer has been infected and that they can remote in to fix it for a fee. We’ve discussed this in the past and there are a lot of reports about how sophisticated this scam is, where it originates from and how it catches people.

Now though there is a new variation you need to be aware of, especially if you are a Netflix user. Take a read of the link below, the Malwarebytes blogger of this report did a fantastic job playing along with the scam to investigate it. This Netflix scam is VERY advanced and could fool a lot of people who you’d think would know better.

Remember that antivirus technologies can only protect you so much. It’s your own habits and education that are your best defense from viruses, scam, hacks and identity theft.
