Netflix Account Locked Text Scam - Payment Declined

Netflix users who have received fake "Netflix Account Locked" text messages like the one below, which claim their accounts have been locked, are asked not to click the link in them. This is because the fake text messages are being sent by online scammers and not Netflix. The link in the fake message goes to a phishing website that steals account credentials, personal and financial information.

Netflix users should never click on a link to sign into their online accounts. They should always go directly to https://www.netflix.com/ and sign into their accounts from there. Once they have signed in, they will be notified of changes, verifications or updates that need to be done to their accounts.

Netflix users who have already been tricked by the phishing text or email tmessages should change their passwords and contact Netflix immediately for help.
