Netflix - Membership on Hold
Posted on October 18, 2016 by
A new email phishing scam is targeting Netflix users. The email has a subject line "Netflix Membership on Hold". The email then asks users to validate their customer information by clicking an embedded link contained within the email. The link directs the user to a fake sign-in page that is exactly identical to Netflix's home page. Once the user sign's into the fake site, the site ask them to validate their account details to include their billing information. Once the user has completed the verification process there are redirected to the real Netflix logon page.
Users are encouraged to practice safe email and web-browsing habits as to not fall victim to scammers. Don't click on embedded links contained within emails; type the organizations or business URLs directly into your web-browser. This will prevent you going to fake sites. Please report all suspicious emails to IT Security.
