Netflix is one of the biggest success stories in modern media. Originally pitched to Blockbuster Video as a way for people to rent DVDs through the mail (Blockbuster turned them down, look how that ended), the service has grown into the most massive online streaming service in the world.
Not only do they carry dozens of shows and movies we already love (while constantly adding more), but since 2013, Netflix’s original programming has given us massive hits like House of Cards, Orange Is The New Black, Sense8, and Marvel’s The Defenders franchise.
With over 103 MILLION subscribers around the world and revenue of over $8 BILLION, it’s safe to say that the company has firmly established themselves and aren’t going anywhere anytime soon.
Unfortunately, money like that can often attract some pretty unsavory characters, and right now there are a few who are trying to trick Netflix customers out of their hard-earned money.
