How to Avoid Norton Scam Email (Fake Norton Renewal Notice)
Scammers are out there working full-time to take your money. One of their latest efforts involves making you think your Norton renewal has come due by sending you an email invoice.
The email looks realistic. It includes Norton’s branding, the product you might be using, and links to complete the payment.
You’ll be directed to a different URL than your Norton account if you click on the email link.
How Can I Tell If the Email Is Fake?
The fake Norton renewal notice tries to create urgency. It may tell you to click a link or call a number not associated with the antivirus provider.
If you receive an unexpected email that looks like it came from Norton, you can contact the company directly to confirm the information. Dial 1 (855) 966-7866 to reach the general customer service line.
You can also log into your My Norton Portal to confirm the information.
As you read the information in the email, you may notice some threats, grammatical errors, or misspelled words. It is a scam if the message suggests that expired settings can cause computer infections.
Don’t reply to the email or call the number it suggests unless it is the toll-free general customer service line.
