Door County Sheriff warns of new scam

The Door County Sheriff's Department is warning citizens of an aggressive email phishing scam. People have been getting emails saying it's from Netflix asking to update their information and it has caught the attention of the Federal Trade Commission. Chief Deputy Patrick McCarty from the Door County Sheriff's Department tells that they have not received any reports from Door County citizens, but the department is aware of the FTC warning. McCarty says if you get an email from Netflix, you should take an extra step before submitting any of your information.



The chief deputy says he's seen this before with other big companies like Apple, Google, and Amazon. McCarty added that if you think you may have received one of these phishing emails or have given your information away, you can call the Door County Sheriff's Department or the FTC to report it.
