Netflix customers warned of phishing email scam

Facebook/NetflixAn email scam is reportedly targeting the millions of Netflix subscribers.

According to Deadline, more than 100 million subscribers have been targeted by the scam thus far; there's no word as to how those emails were obtained.

That's because an email appearing to be from the Los Gatos-based video-streaming giant tells subscribers it needs them to validate their accounts' billing information.

In other words, if you get a note like this from Netflix, or anyone else, don't just go clicking on any links inside.

Governor on every issue, Chief Justice Misra said that it can only do do on which legislature (Delhi assembly) can enact laws. He added that even when there were differences between the L-G and state government, "the L-G can not be sitting on a file".

If you suspect an email or text message is not from Netflix, do not reply to it. Follow the steps below to forward it to us.

The scam is pretty convincing, with the Netflix logo displayed across the top of the email and the subject line reading "Your suspension notification".

Do not click on any links or open attachments from emails claiming to be from a trusted organisation, asking you to update or verify your details. Once these details are entered, scammers have enough information to steal your identity, or gain access to your bank account or credit card.

This scam email is relatively well-designed.

Tesla Inc (TSLA) Slashes Production of Two Cars, Misses Q3 Estimates
Following the completion of the sale, the vice president now owns 1,736 shares of the company's stock, valued at $589,354.64. The company says it's on track to deliver 100,000 Model S and Model X vehicles in 2017, up 30 percent from 2016.

This works like a mail-merge; the body of the email is generic, but the sender field is created to show the name of the intended victim, which personalizes the scam making it more convincing.

Netflix confirmed that the emails are fake and don't come from the company.

In an email statement to The Independent, the company said it takes the security of its members seriously.
