Netflix phishing scam targets subscribers...again


(Monika) #1

LOS GATOS, California - Think twice before you trust an email that appears to be from video streaming service Netflix. A phishing scam is duping customers into handing over their billing data or credit card account numbers.

The emails appear authentic and even include the company’s logo. Users are told there’s a billing error and that they should update their accounts via email or by clicking on links that lead them to fake landing pages.

Similar campaigns targeted subscribers in March and January, and the Los Gatos, California-based company reminds subscribers that it won’t ask for billing or payment information over email.

“Netflix may email you to update this information with a link to our website, but be cautious of fake emails that may link to phishing websites,” the company says on its site.“If you’re unsure about a link in an email, you can always hover your cursor over the link to see where it directs in which you can see the real linked web address at the bottom of most browsers.”
