The fake "Netflix We Noticed an Unusual Activity in your Account" email below, which claims that recipients can get one year of Netflix subscription without cost, is a scam. Online users who click on the links in the fake email message will be taken to spam or malicious websites where they will be tricked into buying counterfeit products, fake or malicious software, or even taken to phishing websites that steal online account credentials, financial and personal information. Therefore, recipients of the Netflix scam are asked to delete it and should not follow the instructions in it.
