Email Scam Targeted at Disney+ Subscribers. In any fairy tale there is always some sort of villain. Whether they be a tricky sea witch, usurping lion, or sometimes it’s not nearly as obvious who the villain is. In this case hundreds of Disney+ Subscribers have fallen victim to a 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 private 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.
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!
