Disney Plus Scammers

BEWARE! Scammers Are Trying to Steal Info Of Disney+ Subscribers

For more than three years, Disney fans have been able to watch hundreds of Disney movies and television shows with the click of a button. Disney’s streaming platform, Disney+, allows subscribers to watch everything from classics like Sleeping Beauty, Lady and the Tramp, and The Rescuers to modern hits like Frozen, Coco, and Moana. Subscribers can also watch hit Disney Channel shows like Lizzie McGuire, Wizards of Waverly Place, Darkwing Duck, Ducktales, and Gargoyles.

In addition to all the incredible Disney-focused content, Guests can also watch dozens of films and television shows from Marvel and LucasFilm, including The Mandalorian, Captain America, The Avengers, The Book of Boba Fett, and more. Disney+ is truly a place where millions of people can come to watch some of their favorite programs. Disney has also been hard at work on creating so many original movies and shows, including The Imagineering Story, Peter Pan & Wendy, Behind the Attraction, National Treasure: Edge of History, and so much more.

And now, scammers are trying to take advantage of that.

According to a new report, scammers are sending out phishing emails, pretending to be Disney+, and asking for customers’ personal information. They then use that information to steal money from the subscriber.

Here’s more from The Money Edit:

Subscribers to Disney+ are now being targeted – fraudsters are hoping that informing users that their payment has been ‘rejected’ will be enough to panic them into taking immediate action…

Despite the email’s convincing appearance, this email was sent from an email account that has nothing to do with Disney. It tells the recipient that Disney+ has, supposedly, been unable to renew their subscription due to a ‘technical incident’.

But this is a tactic designed to panic the victim into updating their ‘billing information’, under threat of the streaming service being withdrawn.

Following the email’s link will take you to a site that will encourage you to enter your sensitive personal information – most likely your bank details.

If you fill out and submit your details you’ll have given crucial information to fraudsters, which is exactly what they’re hoping for.

Should Disney have issues with subscriber payment, they will not email the subscriber asking for personal information via a link, but the phishing scam will. Disney+ subscribers can update their payment information directly through Disney+. There is also an area of the website that will tell subscribers how they can contact Disney+ if they have any issues. Do not give your credit card information out unless confirmed with Disney.

If you received an email that says it is from Disney+, it is best not to click any links. Instead, go to the Disney+ website and reach out to them through the contact information provided there.
