New year 2020, not so new scam – Netflix email scam refreshed!!

As we enter a new year, it should come as no surprise that Netflix remains a favourite with cybercriminals. This simple email phishing scam is once more hitting inboxes in the first days of 2020. The email tells recipients ‘Your Netflix Membership is on hold’ with a sender display name of NETFLIX, although the emails are actually coming from a compromised email account.

The verification link in the email takes users to a fake Netflix ‘Sign In’ page where the scammers harvest the credentials of unsuspecting subscribers. A warning is also presented that warns users that a failure to complete the process will result in their membership being suspended.

It’s easy to stay with the crowd, it takes courage to stand alone.
