The National Police warns of new actions by phishing, this time with emails posing as Netflix.
The scam attempts They will never end, there will always be someone who tries to take advantage of an oversight to steal accounts or have access to personal and sensitive information, now more than ever, when daily thousands of people come to the Internet without previous experience.
If you have received a alleged Netflix email Reporting problems in your monthly payment, send it directly to the trash and do not follow the instructions.
Don’t trust emails asking for payment details
Just like alert the National Police In social networks, in recent days there are new cases of phishing, that is, scam attempts through the identity theft. This time the attackers send emails posing as an official Netflix communication.
The streaming content service has made a large number of users since it arrived in Spain a little more than a year ago. The cost of subscribing to the service is charged monthly to users and varies depending on the contracted modality, so taking advantage of this try to impersonate Netflix to report failures when validating payments.
The email asks users to enter the attached link and fill in their account details, as well as billing information. Obviously it is a hoax and the only thing they want to achieve is access to our account and, in addition, our Bank data.
Alleged failure to pay = don’t trust

It is enough to read the body of the message carefully to realize how poorly written it is, also including terms that are poorly translated or directly in English. The problem is the same, there will be unwary users who do not appreciate these details and end up providing these data.
As we always recommend under constant phishing actions, we must make sure of the origin of the messages, confirm that we are on official pages and under HTTPS security and, above all, suspect, never a serious entity, such as your bank, ask you for private data. through a simple email.
