Beware of "Netflix We're Sorry to Say Goodbye" Phishing Scam

Netflix users who have received similar email messages to the one below, which ask them to rejoin or restart their memberships because their accounts have been cancelled, are asked to delete them and not follow the instructions in them. This is because the email messages are phishing scams sent by cybercriminals to steal their Netflix account credentials (user names and passwords), personal and credit card information. And, once the cybercriminals have stolen their victims’ account credentials, they will gain access to their accounts and hijack them.

Please continue below.

A Sample of the "We're Sorry to Say Goodbye" Netflix Phishing Email

Netflix

We're sorry to say goodbye

We've cancelled your Netflix Account. This change will be effective Tuesday, November 8, 2016.

Netflix users who have already been tricked by the phishing email messages should change their passwords and contact Netflix immediately for help.
