Scammers look for popular platforms in the world for victims, the latest coming to our attention is targeting users of Netflix.

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.

Netflix, on its website, recommends that if you suspect you have received a fraudulent email or text message that appears to be from Netflix, follow these tips to keep your information safe and secure, and follow the steps below to report the message:

  • 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.
  • If you suspect an email or text message is not from Netflix, do not reply to it.
  • Report any suspicious emails or text messages here.

Reduce the risk

To block the possibility of being a victim of electronic fraud, consider the following recommendations:

  • Have antivirus always installed on computers, cellular phones and tablets
  • Change passwords periodically
  • Do not use the same password for different platforms
  • Passwords should be unique and not easy to guess.

In Costa Rica there are some 110,000 Netflix accounts, according to a study by Red 506 by El Financiero.
