Netflix Scams and Fake Emails Sent by Cybercriminals

Cybercriminals are sending out thousands of fake Netflix emails to their potential victims. The fake emails are phishing scams with links to fake Netflix websites. The fake websites will ask visitors to sign-in with their Netflix account credentials, but any attempts to sign-in will result in the visitors' credentials being sent to the same cybercriminals.

Once the cybercriminals have received the stolen credentails, they will use it to gain unauthorised access to the accounts associated with the accounts, hijack the accounts and used them fraudulently.
