Here's an article from Pittsburgh's CBS affiliate news service. LOS ANGELES (CBS) – Netflix users should be aware of a new email phishing scam that has been circulating the internet for the past few days. First reported by WGN, the scam concerns an official-looking email that claims there is an issue with your “billing information.” The email asks users to login and “update your payment details.” It is signed, “Aleksandar.” There is a link called “Login Now” that, if clicked, will take you to a fake page that asks you to enter account information. Under its help center, Netflix says it will never ask you for your payment information, social security number or password over email. Phishers will go to great lengths to try to take over your account or steal your personal information,” Netflix writes. “They may create fake websites that look like Netflix, or send emails that imitate us and ask you for personal information.” Netflix asks that if you receive a suspicious email, forward it to email@example.com and then delete it immediately. Here is an example of what the bogus email may look like.
Hi all, I wanted to share this email I recieved in my spam folder to the forum community. One look and you can tell it's nothing but an attempt to aquire personal information from the recipient for heaven knows what nafarious purpose. Identity theft would be my first guess! Out of curiosity I did a search of the web and couldn't find a company with the name Phil & Mel fabric Inc at all! So that's just another indicator that this email is completely bogus. Also note the sender does not identify me personally and the syntax errors (an indication the sender's primary language is not English). The bottom line is if you recieve an email that is either out right suspicious (as this one is) or too good to be true don't respond to it or give out any personal information to these scammers or you risk becoming just another victim of identity theft.
