Netflix has revolutionized the entertainment industry since it was launched online in 2013. For a small fee each month, the streaming service enables millions of people to enjoy countless movies and TV shows from the comfort of their own homes.
But if you’re a subscriber, you need to know about this elaborate scam that’s a lot more convincing than an email from Prince Chido Okereke Ogazia!
Netflix is a lot more than just a provider of ready-made entertainment. The streaming service also produces content and some of the world’s best-loved shows and movies have made their debut there including House of Cards and Orange is the New Black.
Having dominated popular culture for a few years now, Netflix is even a part of internet slang. I’m sure most millennials can attest to being invited around to someone’s house for “Netflix and chill” – a euphemism for casual sex.
Netflix has an estimated 109.25 million subscribers worldwide, all of whom have trusted the service with their bank account details. Now scammers are trying to dupe unsuspecting users into parting with them through an elaborate scam.
In this video below, a subscriber explains how she was robbed of $2,000 and had 45 bank accounts started in her name by falling for it.
