Netflixsubscribers, beware of a fake email that's going around.
Beware your inbox: there's a new scam email circulating to Netflix subscribers that can trick you into giving up your credit card information.
This works like a mail-merge; the body of the email is generic, but the sender field is created to show the name of the intended victim, which personalises the scam making it more convincing.
The email informs subscribers that their account has been suspended due to problems with the billing on their account.
The streaming platform has 110 million subscribers today, and as it plans to spend $8 billion on original content next year, Netflix can possibly reel in even more customers in the coming years.
Clicking on any of the links will redirect you to a fake site where your details will be stolen by scammers. One thing Netflix emphasizes is that it will never ask for personal information to be sent in an email.
The email will ask readers to click a link, leading them to a fake Netflix page and asking them to enter their private information, an Australian cyber security firm said.
Netflix said it is aware of the ongoing scam, adding that the company takes security seriously and has measures in place to detect fraudulent activity.
