Man is outraged to discover a friend of his ex-girlfriend has been secretly using his Netflix account for YEARS - but HE is branded 'cheap' for refusing to share his new password (6 Pics)

A friend piggybacking on your Netflix account is certainly irritating, but one man was left outraged when he discovered a friend of his ex had been using his login for years without his knowledge. 
A British Reddit user, who goes by the name The_Duff, shared screenshots of a WhatsApp exchange, which took place after he received a message from a number he didn't recognise, asking him to pay for his membership. 
The person then identified herself as a friend of his ex-girlfriend and demanded that she be allowed to continue using The Duff's account because he's 'paying for it anyway'. 
She then called him 'cheap' when he refused in the heated exchange, which has now racked up 83,000 upvotes. 

The Whatsapp exchange came as a shock to the Reddit poster, who couldn't believe his ex's friend had been using his Netflix account for years 
Other users were shocked by the story, especially as the unnamed woman couldn't understand what the problem was. 
'Just pay, I'm trying to watch something,' she told her friend's ex.
One user wrote 'That deep-rooted level of entitlement never ceases to amaze and infuriate me.'
While another said 'Sounds like a real piece of trash.'

Friend of my ex has been using my Netflix details without my knowledge for years. Calls me cheap!

 'Hey have you paid your Netflix account?
?Who is this? I don't have your number saved
It's **** Can you please pay it by tonight
I haven't spoken to you in years...how and why do you have my netflix details? 
 **** gave it to me when you 2 were seeing  
You have got to be f****g kidding...I'll be changing my password right away.
Y are you being a t*t? What difference will that make I have it set to log in straight away. Just pay it I'm trying to watch something
You are not using my account anymore. I cannot believe the cheek of it. Lose my number please.
Whatever you can't afford to lose the £10 haha
Hahaha the irony of someone saying I can't afford to pay for something that they have been leeching off for over 2 years. Not that it's any of your business but I have changed banks so they tried claiming from my old closed one.
What u mean??? It's not letting me log in now. Just pay it. 
I have. But you won't be able to use it without the new password
What difference does it make if u are paying it anyway. I have nothing to do tonight how and really want to watch Netflix
Then pay your f*****g own!! Done with this now...blocked!!
*** was too good for you Cheap c**t'
However, a surprising number of other users said they'd caught people using their Netflix accounts before without paying, including a number of exes. 
One wrote ' Funny story I once had a girl post on Instagram the day after breaking up with me “TFW you break up with your man but still have his HBO”
She quickly lost access after I contacted customer support to log out all users on my account'.  

A surprising number of users said they'd faced similar situations with other services. One even said he'd had to contact customer support to log an ex-girlfriend out of his account

  1. He should have seen it in his Netflix history seeing movies he did not watch.

    When I had a cell phone stolen a couple years ago, someone was using it to watch "booty twerking" YouTube videos, because they showed up in my viewing history, and in recommended videos.

    That stopped after a while, after they likely did a reset on the phone, but for a long I could see booty twerking and gansta rap videos in YouTube viewing history.

    There were even some movies I did not watch on Netflix. When Netflix had the rights to certain Disney classic cartoons, I did see Cinderella, Aladdin, and Alice in Wonderland in my Netflix viewing history at one point.

    So keep an eye on your viewing history. If you see movies you know you did not watch, somebody has access to your account.
