New Netflix Phishing Email Scams Are Making Their Rounds

These days the spam filters in Email services are getting much better where usually you can more or less rest assured knowing that you are safe. However from time to time, some do slip through the cracks, and some are especially convincing due to the email names they use and also the way the emails have been designed.

For instance it seems that recently a new Netflix Phishing Email scam has been making its rounds. In an image shared by the Grand Rapids Police Department on Facebook, this phishing scam is basically informing Netflix users that their account has been suspended. It then asks users to restart their membership if they wish to continue using the service.

According to the police, “The email then prompts you to click on a link and enter your personal information to include credit card numbers. This is not a legitimate email from Netflix and your accounts may be compromised/identity fraudulently used if you provide information.” Presumably from there your personal information could then be used to either try to log into other sites, such as banks, or your credit card information could be used to make unauthorized purchases.

If you receive such an email, it’s probably best to ignore it, or you can try logging in and out of your Netflix account to see if it has been truly suspended.
