The link within the message goes to a fake website, which looks exactly like the legitimate Netflix website sign-in page: www.netflix.com/Login.

Whatever you do, do not enter your Netflix sign in or login information on the malicious website.

If you try to sign-in to these fake websites by entering your username and password, it will be sent to the scammers behind these bogus websites. With your sign-in information, these scammers will hijack your account.

If you were tricked into entering your sign-in information on the fake and malicious website or other fake NetFlix websites, please change your password immediately. If you are unable to change your password, please contact Netflix.

Scammers will be creating more bogus websites to lure persons into their traps. If you receive any e-mails or text messages claiming that you need to go to a particular website in order to update your Netflix information, please go directly to www.netflix.com to verify this information or call Netflix Customer Service to verify your information, instead of clicking on a link within the email message.
