By  | 

BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - The Penobscot County Sheriffs office took to Facebook Saturday warning people about a world wide scam involving Netflix customers.

Scammers are sending emails claiming that customer billing information needs to be updated and their account has become invalid.

If a user were to click on the link in the email, it would appear they were on a real Netflix website.

However, the Sheriffs Office said do not enter your personal information... it's a false page.

Netflix wants to remind users that they will never ask for personal information over an email.

if you have received a suspicious email, folks can forward it to phishing@netflix.com
