New Netflix scam targets millions of customers worldwide

Posted November 07, 2017

Netflix Inc. customers are being warned about a new targeted email scam to steal their credit card information.

The "well-designed" and "convincing" email scam was first detected on Friday by Australian cybersecurity company MailGuard and is specifically aimed at the more than 110 million Netflix customers around the world. Screenshots revealed that the emails asked Netflix subscribers to validate their billing information or have their memberships suspended.

The subject line says, "Your suspension notification", and the email contains the Netflix logo.

The new phishing scam - which looks like the real deal - falsely tells users that their account will been suspended unless their payment information is updated within 48 hours. "Obviously we'd love to have you back, simply click restart your membership to update your details and continue to enjoy all the best TV shows and movies without interruption".

Los Angeles Chargers hang tough, but fall to Patriots in Foxborough
That unit had another solid outing against the Chargers , save for Melvin Gordon's 87-yard touchdown run in the first half. It certainly seemed as though they could pull the upset as the Patriots came out a bit stagnant.

Netflix subscribers have been hit by an updated version of the scam that has been doing the rounds since a year ago. No Netflix executives exist with that name, according to Mashable.

Deadline reported the scam targeted "millions" of subscribers. There's a link in the email that takes the user to a form where you are supposed to enter your credit card number. Netflix users should be extra cautious while reading and responding to any emails as they could be risking their sensitive information.

MailGuard called the phishing scam "relatively well designed" because of its ability to generate "individualized messages with specific recipient data".
