The Better Business Bureau is warning consumers that a text scam involving Netflix that looks too good to be real is just that. Consumers across the US are reporting to the BBB that they are receiving texts saying, “Due to the pandemic, Netflix is offering everyone a free year of service to help you stay at home. Click the link to sign up.” If you click on the link, it takes you to a website that requests your personal information, you will not receive a free year of Netflix and you’ve been scammed. KRPS’s Fred Fletcher-Fierro recently spoke to the BBB’s Regional Director in Kansas, Denise Groene, to get more details of how scammers are stealing people’s personal information.
