Better Business Bureau warns of Netflix scam

Posted: Updated:

The Better Business Bureau is warning Netflix users about a scam. Users are being sent a fake Netflix login page and once they log in, victims are told their account has been suspended because of illegal activity.

Users are then advised to download some support software, which is actually a program that allows them control of your computer.

The BBB offers the following tips on how to avoid being a victim:

-Never grant anyone remote access to your computer unless you absolutely trust them.

-Be wary of any unsolicited tech support phone calls.

-Research numbers to verify their authenticity.
