It might be smart to check your bank statement if you have a Netflix account.

Police say Netflix users are receiving a scam e-mail (allegedly from Netflix), requiring users to update their login information. When a user clicks the link, a second screen pops up, asking for personal information such as:

  • Card number
  • Card expiration date
  • Card security code
