If you have a Netflix account, you’ll want to be aware of this.


Australian Netflix users are being warned about a scam that could affect log-in and bank details.

The scam comes in the form of an email with the subject line “Netflix Membership on Hold”. Users are asked to validate their Netflix information by clicking on a link in the email, which takes them to a sign-in website that looks almost identical to the Netflix page.

Once the user signs in, they are presented with an “account verification” page with certain details already filled in from the company’s website.

Then, victims are asked to update their billing information including credit card details.

Stay safe on the interwebs everyone!
