The fake notice informs users that their subscription will be suspended because their billing information can't be validated. When a curious user naturally opens up the email, they're presented with a link that redirects to a dummy Netflix page where they're instructed to enter their login credentials along with their credit card information.
A scam warning for all Netflix users.
The company has said that it will never ask for personal information to be sent over e-mail.
The company says if you clicked the link and provided any personal information, you should immediately change your Netflix password and contact your financial institution.
Aside from the error with the recipient name field, this email looks quite convincing. So if you see this in the first line of an email that looks real, it's a pretty safe bet that it actually isn't, and you can just immediately delete.
We take the security of our members' accounts seriously and Netflix employs numerous proactive measures to detect fraudulent activity to keep the Netflix service and our members' accounts secure.
From there you're taken to a page asking for your full name, date of birth, address, and payment details - at the end of which the scammers have scored your money.
