A New Scam Involving Netflix Is Coming To Town
You have to give credit where credit is due. This is a good scam.
The above email is going around now. It looks pretty good. The logo is right. If you've ever received an email from Netflix you'll recognize the font and even how their emails are structured.
The problem is that it's totally fake. It's a phishing scam. The link directs you to a page that looks exactly like a "Netflix" webpage but isn't. It will prompt you to enter your information, including credit card number, and then thanks you for rejoining and that's all that happens.
I'll be honest. I think I might fall for something like this. I need my Netflix and wouldn't think twice about resubmitting my information so I can keep on watching Stranger Things.
The foolproof way to avoid things like this is to NEVER click on a link in an email. Go directly to the company's website and you can avoid 99% of the scams out there.
