PORTLAND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Police departments around Maine are trying to get the word out about a Netflix phishing scam.
Millions of Netflix customers are receiving a fake e-mail saying their billing information needs to be updated and includes a link to do so.
The link will take you to a website that looks like a real Netflix page but it is a fake.
The fake site will ask for your personal information including your credit card number.
Once the hackers have your information, you will receive a message saying your account has been reactivated.
Netflix says it will never ask for any personal information over email.
The company may email you to update information with a link to its website -- but be cautious of fake emails.
If you received a suspicious email, forward it to email@example.com
