  1. I got this text message and thought it might be a fake so I called actual hulu before I clicked the link to see if the sent about for a refund to some account holders and the agent I spoke to talked to his manager and they did research and found that yes it was from them. I had sent a copy and paste of the text I received per their request. They verified it was real.
    Once I contacted them the only wanted my name, address, phone number and reference on the email I was sent and then I could receive my money by PayPal, venmo. Or paper check by mail. Nothing about my bank account.

    1. I got the same email on 6/24 responded requesting a check. Received the check yesterday for $900 + . Called HULU and while they could verify they were using a third party to process refunds for over charges they could not explain the $900+ refund amount. I ran the routing number through the ABA website and it did NOT come up as a legitimate bank routing number. In addition HULU did not have a fraud department or person whom I could speak to which I find as very unusual for a company that does all of its business on the internet.
