This week we are combining #tbt and #k9friday into one! On the left is Ralph Crookston, a former Undersheriff and the man on the right is George Odell. Ralph owned those dogs personally, but generously offered them to assist the Sheriff’s Office. George did not work for the Sheriff’s Office, he was a Game Manager, kind of like today’s NYS Econ Police. George and Ralph worked and trained the bloodhounds together. The photo was around 1960. #pcso #americanbloodhounds #putnamstrong

Putnam Residents Report Netflix Phishing Scam Emails

scam email

Sheriff Robert L. Langley, Jr. reports that Putnam County residents have been receiving sophisticated scam emails claiming to be from Netflix.

The email is well-designed and attempts to fool Netflix customers into turning over their credit card details.

The message claims that there is a billing issue that needs to be resolved. The email contains an “Update Payment” button that will take the victim to a malicious site that looks like a legitimate Netflix page. It asks for credit card details and password verification. This is not a Netflix page, and the credit card and password is sent to the scammers.

The Sheriff reminds people they need to be cautious of emails, even if they appear to come from a sender they know. Think twice before acting; go to the source straight from your browser if you receive an email link you were not expecting. In this case, www.netflix.com, if there is a billing issue, it can be found there.

If you think you have been a victim if this scam or any other internet phishing attempt, please call 845 225-4300 for assistance from the Sheriff’s Office.
