There's a new Netflix scam going around that's brutal AF

trending 17/01/2017

Whatever you do, do NOT fall for this one or you'll be seriously pissed.

There is a pretty suspicious email going around from "Netflix" at the moment, but beware because it's a total scam. 

The hackers have targeted Netflix's official subsriber list, so if you've recieved this email don't be surprised. 

The email asks users to update their information, and redirects you to a landing page that looks EXACTLY like the official Netflix website.

You will then be prompted to login, using your account information.

Just FYI the real Netflix never asks you to update your information via an email - you would do it directly through their website or app.

An official spokesperson from Netflix has made the below statement on the issue: 

"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.

"Unfortunately, phishing scams are common on the internet and target popular brands such as Netflix and other companies with large customer bases to lure users into giving out personal information.

"Members who want to learn more about how to keep their personal information safe against phishing scams and other malicious activity can go to or contact Customer Service directly."
