Netflix scam alert – your account is not on hold

By

A fake email is being circulated with the common subject line of “Netflix Membership On Hold". The link in the email takes you to a fake sign-in page almost identical to the real Netflix page.

According to the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA), this is a scam targeting Australian and overseas Netflix users, aiming to steal your Netflix credentials. The fake sign-in page is extremely convincing and is a reminder that phishing scams aren’t just about stealing your bank account details – you need to keep ALL your personal information safe and secure.

This is not the first Netflix scam – nor will it be the last. According to Hoax-slayer,  almost every month there is a phishing campaign helpfully pointing out issues with your membership, or claiming your account is being shut down, or that there is new content from Netflix, or new settings, or ways to avoid geo-fencing …

Recently SMS became a preferred delivery vector too. So much so that Netflix has published advice to help avoid phishing scams here.
