A Netflix Email scam is currently in circulation and it’s designed to steal credit card details, Newsweek reports. Veuer’s Sam Berman has the full story.
Phishing scams are nothing new and at this point, even less-than-savvy users have basically become experts at spotting them. It’s typically pretty easy because they’re often littered with spelling and grammar mistakes, and sometimes they don’t even use formatting that’s anything like real emails a company has sent out in the past. Every so often, however, a new email scam pops up that’s just good enough to pose a real problem for unsuspecting targets, and such is the case with a new scam that popped up recently.
Netflix subscribers are being targeted by this latest scam, which is particularly troubling because so many people in the United States can be counted among Netflix’s subscriber base. Also troubling is the fact that this particular phishing scam plays on people’s love of Netflix by suggesting their accounts could be suspended if action isn’t taken.
