A "Netflix Account Locked" Text Scam

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.
