The email looks like it's from Netflix and claims the users account with the streaming service will be canceled, Mailguard warned. If the recipient clicks the link in the email they are taken to a fake Netflix page, that asks them to log in and then enter their personal information, including credit card details.
"Of course, this website is completely bogus and is just a mechanism for the scammers to steal the victim's identity and credit card information", the site wrote.
According to Mailguard, the Netflix email scam works like mail-merge, where the body of the mail is generic, but the sender field is created to show the name of the targeted user, giving a strong and convincing look to the email.
If you're a Netflix subscriber and you got an email saying that your account was about to be suspended, don't open it, and definitely don't give away any personal details.
