Email Scam Leads to Selling of Disney+ Subscriptions Online. We previously reported that Disney+ subscribers have recently become targeted in a new email scam, urging subscribers to change their password or confirm their payment information in conniving emails, designed to look like they were sent by the Disney+ team.
I myself received one of these emails, and elected to ignore it and check the status of my account through the Disney+ app. I was still getting uninterrupted service, and it’s clear the email was designed to scare subscribers into using the link provided in the email.
Hundreds of Disney+ Subscribers have fallen victim to this vicious email scam targeted at Disney+ users either asking them to change their password over “security concerns” or stating there is a problem with their credit card information and to input their billing and account information.
The emails look VERY convincing and seem to come from Disney+ but they are not. The false emails even try to say the account will be locked until the reported “issue” is fixed. If you do receive an email similar to the one below DO NOT click the link suggesting you change your password or fix your information. If you are truly concerned about your account be sure to report your issue via help.disneyplus.com, not through these emails.
The news was first shared by Cord Cutters News, and detailed how the information is being stolen.
Basically, once you input your information the hacker is able to gather your personal and/or account information and sell it illegally online. Causing unauthorized profiles appearing on your account or even being completely blocked from your own account after the email and password are changed by the unauthorized user.
According to a report from ZDNet, thousands of accounts have already become available and have been advertised on hacker forums for sale, ranging from $3-$11 per account.
Once again, if you DID respond to one of these emails or feel your account has been compromised, immediately change your password via DisneyPlus.com ONLY, or contact their customer service team via help.disneyplus.com
DO NOT respond to these suspicious emails. We hope none of you have had to deal with this issue, I noticed unusual emails started as early as Tuesday, so please stay vigilant and it may not be a bad idea to also change your email password while you are at it! Stay safe out their internet dwellers.
