And, remember that legitimate companies like DirecTV will never ask their customers to send personal information, account information, financial information via an email message.
DIRECTV customers who have already been tricked by the scam are asked to contact DIRECTV for help and contact their banks if they have disclosed their credit card information. Also, those DIRECTV customers should be careful going forward because online scammers will be contacting them and will attempt to scam them.
