The use, worried about not being able to access their account and lose the latest episode of the series they are watching, for example, will rush to click on the link, taken to a fake page where they will enter the data requested, which is used by the scammers to commit fraud.

This is called Phishing.

  • Never enter your login or financial details after following a link in an email or text message. If you’re unsure if you’re visiting our legitimate Netflix website, type www.netflix.com directly into your web browser.
  • Never click on any links or open any attachments in an email or text message you received unexpectedly, regardless of the source.
