On the department's Facebook page, the Grand Rapids PD posted about a phony email that purports to be from Netflix alerting customers of a suspended membership due to Netflix not being able to "validate" billing information.

According to the police, "The email then prompts you to click on a link and enter your personal information to include credit card numbers". Also troubling is the fact that this particular phishing scam plays on people's love of Netflix by suggesting their accounts could be suspended if action isn't taken.

Authorities say this is not a legitimate email from Netflix.

Similar campaigns targeted subscribers past year, and the Los Gatos, California-based company reminded users that it won't ask for billing or payment information over email.

U.S. scientists captured and fitted collars equipped with Global Positioning System and "bear cam" to nine cub-less female bears. Meanwhile, the most recent polar bear population estimate by USGS also indicated almost 40 percent decline over the past decade.


The company says they may email customers to update their account information with a link to their website, but warn of scammers who try to impersonate them.

The Grand Rapids Police Department in MI has posted to its Facebook page warning Netflix users of an email phishing scam.

If you have questions regarding your Netflix account, make sure to go directly to the company's website. Remember, Netflix will never ask you to disclose any sensitive personal information to them via email.
