TULSA - Internet "phishing" scams continue to be more sophisticated, and a new one uses the popular online streaming service Netflix as bait.
The fake website shows an alert that the victim's Netflix account has been suspended, and that they should call an 800 number.
Once that happens, the scammers have the user download a program that remotely gives them access to the computer.
They then scan the computer for anything interesting, such as banking information and password lists, and the scam doesn't stop there.
They try to convince the user that they've been hacked (ironically), then "sell" them antivirus software.
During the transaction, they'll also try to get all the information on the victim's credit card, including a photo of the card itself.
The video below features Jérôme Segura, an engineer with Malwarebytes, the anti-virus company.
He discovered the scam online, then actually called the number and complied with the thieves' instructions and posted the resulting video on YouTube.
