If you receive an email advising your Netflix subscription has been cancelled, it could be part of a sophisticated scam targeting Aussie customers of the streaming service.
The email scam has been painstakingly designed appear like an authentic message from Netflix, with the username and branding mimicking the streaming giant.
Recipients are told the payment their “Netflix subscription has been cancelled” and provides a link for people to reactive their service.
Clicking the link redirects users Netflix branded phishing page which is almost indistinguishable from the actual login page.
Once the user enters their account information, they are redirected to another page instructing the recipient to update their payment details to reactivate their account.
If the unsuspecting victim completes these steps, their Netflix username and password, and credit card details will be handed over to cyber criminals.
Email security service MailGuard said there are several red flags indicating the email is a scam.
“There are several grammatical errors within the body, such as ‘we have never been able to solve the payment problem’,” explained MailGuard.
“There is also a footer containing instructions in French at the end of the email.”
MailGuard urges all recipients to delete the email immediately without clicking on any links.
