Recipients who were tricked by the phishing Netflix email message should change their Netflix passwords immediately, and if they are unable to do so, they should contact Netflix. They should also let their banks know that their credit card information was stolen by cybercriminals, before the credit cards are used fraudulently.
In order to protect against phishing scams, Netflix users should never click on a link to sign into their accounts, or open and complete attached forms that request account credentials, personal and financial information.netflix users should instead, go directly to www.netflix.com, and update their information or carry out other tasks on their accounts.
