Netflix phishing scam about failed bank transfer

13 June 2018

Watch out when you receive an email purporting to come from Netflix. It may have been sent by scammers.

Such scam emails inform recipients that their monthly direct debit has failed. For this reason, they are asked to confirm their personal data. Don’t do this! The email contains a link that directs to a counterfeit website, where you’re asked to fill out data. This information will end up in scammers’ hands.

Our advice
Ignore this email. Netflix has nothing to do with it. If you have received a suspicious email, please forward it to valse-email@fraudehelpdesk.nl before deleting it from your inbox.
