(KTVI) – Scammers are targeting Netflix customers.

According to a new report, after you enter your Netflix login information, a fake error message may pop up.

It says “Netflix” has detected unusual activity in the account and in order to regain access, you have to call an 800 number.

The scammers then tell you to download an install fake “Netflix support software.”  That software allows hackers to dig through your computer to download any files, including financial files.

The scammers also send you a fake $50 Netflix credit to seem legit.
