How the scam works:
The great popularity that Netflix has achieved with its convenient service has also attracted scammers who want to take advantage of it.
There is an email going around that claims to be from Netflix, but is sent by scammers who – using the network’s logo, graphics, and even layout – offer the subscribers a new outstanding deal. The text says:
“We are allowing the first 25,000 subscribers to receive a special rate and lock in their current pricing for the next five years. Click here for this offer”.
However, clicking the link will get you to fill in a form with all your banking and personal info, not to mention the link containing malware or other viruses.
How to avoid:
If not sure, go to the real Netflix’ official website and check for their amazing deals. Don’t click the link provided in the e-mail. If you take a closer look at the message received, you might see that the scammers’ e-mail comes from a domain name spelled Netfl1x, missing the letter “i” (photo).
