ROANOKE, Va. — Police in Virginia are warning people of a scam currently targeting Netflix users.
The Roanoke Police Department tweeted a photo of an alert that appears to come from Netflix alleging that the user’s credit card on file could not be authorized.
It urges the user to update the expiration date and card verification value (CVV) as soon as possible.
The police department urged users to simply check their statement to make sure it has been paid.
Thanks to the @HanoverSheriff for this #RPDScamAlert! The crooks are using @netflix to try and scam users by claiming their credit card has been declined & in need of updating. Check your statement & you’ll see it’s paid. Plus your #Netflix is still running… so it’s a #scam! pic.twitter.com/IpeQE3C6ok
