In the email is a red button “CLICK HERE TO VERIFY YOUR ACCOUNT” that leads directly to a replica Netflix login page, as well as pages that ask for personal details including Credit Card information.

Unsuspecting Netflix customers who are tricked into this process will not only divulge their account password (which they may have used elsewhere), but may also have their credit card details stolen and used for fraudulent purchases.

If you do receive a Netflix phishing email, you should report it officially to Netflix by forwarding the message to phishing@netflix.com. Further information about keeping your Netflix account secure can be found here
