Scam alert - fake Netflix renewal scam

Screen Shot

According to deadline.com, more than 100 million subscribers have been targeted by the scam thus far and it is not known as to how those emails were obtained. Subscribers are then asked to enter their billing information.

They said they will never ask for any personal information be sent over email address.

According to MailGuard, a website which tracks email security issues, this scam is relatively well-designed and could fool some users. On the surface, the email looks convincing, and it includes a Netflix logo.

Netflix subscribers should take note that they may end up being the target of a new email scam as they watched the latest movies.

Kate Upton, Justin Verlander tie the knot in intimate Italian wedding
The wedding was reportedly conducted at an old medieval church in the city, overlooking Montalcino valley and its vineyards. Three days later, he and fiancee', supermodel Kate Upton , exchanged rings in a wedding ceremony in Italy, ESPN reports .

Because the email is a scam. So if you see this in the first line of an email that looks real, it's a pretty safe bet that it actually isn't, and you can just immediately delete.

As many as 110 million Netflix subscribers received a scam email from a hacker in an attempt to steal personal data and credit card information. The emails look like they are from Netflix, appear to be on official Netflix letterhead, and say your account is being suspended because the company was unable to verify your billing information.

The service said it employs numerous protective measure to detect fraud and keep accounts secure. As a result, the greeting on the email reads "Hi, #name#", a dead giveaway that the email didn't come straight from Netflix.

In order to prevent their account from being suspended, users are encouraged to give their log-in details and credit card info.
