Re: Netflix Phishing Scam

If the images or links don't originate from a Netflix server then it should be flagged up by a spam manager.

Plus companies like Netflix will never ask you to update your credentials. Unless there is a legitimate reason

e-mail headers contain the origin and server information which can be used to trace where in the world it came from

Re: Netflix Phishing Scam

Thanks for the heads up @Bambino

Though the first thing to wave a red flag for me is the opening 'greeting'

'Hi Dear' is not the usual way a company addresses it's customers!

Re: Netflix Phishing Scam

As always @Bambino, thanks for a heads up on the latest scam.

 

I don't have a Netflix account, but why would that stop them, though like @Cleoriff I wouldn't expect to be addressed 'Hi Dear' either in a business communication.

 

Still always good to know the latest scam doing the rounds. You never know what's going to hit your in box.
