New email scam targets millions of Netflix subscribers

07 November 2017

Unfortunately, scams are common on the internet and target popular brands such as Netflix and other companies with large customer bases to lure users into giving out personal information.

There is also a link that takes subscribers to a fake Netflix page seeking login information and a credit card number, according to MailGuard, a global SaaS email and web security company.

NYPD, Manhattan DA's Office Investigate New Rape Allegations Against Harvey Weinstein
Weinstein's spokeswoman told Vanity Fair that the film producer "unequivocally denied" all allegations of nonconsensual sex. Either way, they need collaboration from Manhattan prosecutors, who put the brakes on a 2015 investigation into Weinstein.

"We were unable to validate your billing information for the next billing cycle of your subscription therefore we'll suspend your membership if we do not receive a response from you within 48 hours", the email reads. The malicious emails were first noticed Mailguard late last week, in a blog entry posted to the company's website. The Netflix email scam, which is designed neatly to look authentic, informs the customers that their account will be canceled unless they update their account information.

Millions of Netflix users are now being targeted by an updated version of a scam that has been doing the rounds since past year.

Iraqi Forces Recapture More Territory from ISIS in Anbar
Deir Ezzor had been divided into government-held and ISIS-held parts for almost three years. He estimated there were 1,500-2,500 fighters left in al-Qaim and 2,000-3,000 in Albu Kamal.

So if you see an email in your inbox that looks anything like the below, be sure to get on to Netflix and confirm it's really from them.

There's no word yet on how many people have fallen for this scam. But instead of directing you to the actual Netflix website, clicking the "Restart Membership" button on the email leads you to a fake website (that again, looks legit thanks to recent press photos and images) and ultimately provides your credit card details straight to the scammer.

Did Sessions mislead Congress about his interactions with Russian Federation ?
Sessions made similar denials in two subsequent hearings before Congress on Russian Federation since taking office. In reality, the group met only once or twice and didn't really function.

Always hover your mouse over links within emails and check the domain they're pointing to.
