110 million Netflix users targeted in email scam

110 million Netflix users targeted in email scam”

The nearly 110 million Netflix subscribers around the world may need to pay a little more attention than usual to their emails over the next few days.

Millions of people are receiving an email that looks like its a cancellation notice from Netflix.

If you're a Stranger Things obsessive, a lover of 13 Reasons Why or can't wait for The Crown season two, the chances are that you're a Netflix addict.

The email is a scam.

Australian publication MailGuard went into further detail, calling the scam "well-designed" in the way it personalizes the message to each Netflix user.

The emails look like they are from Netflix, appear to be on official Netflix letterhead, and say a person's account is being suspended because the company was unable to verify the billing information.

If however you are a said Netflix addict or even just hold an account with the entertainment company, there's something pretty serious that you need to be aware of. Netflix issued a statement to Today in response to the scam, saying it takes account security seriously and works proactively to keep member accounts safe.

The company will never ask for any personal information to be sent over email and advises its subscribers to be careful of phishing emails that lead to false websites, according to its security page.
