As many as 110 million Netflix subscribers may have received a scam email alerting them that their account has been suspended, only to be prompted to click on a link that leads to a phishing website with the goal of stealing sensitive personal data and credit card information.
The scam is pretty convincing, with the Netflix logo displayed across the top of the email and the subject line reading "Your suspension notification".
Deadline is reporting that scammers have been targeting Netflix customers as of late, sending individualized emails that threaten to revoke their Netflix subscription if they fail to update their account information.
The subscribers are told their billing information can not be validated and face membership suspension if a response isn't received within 48 hours.
Once the customer clicks the link, the next page that opens has the backdrop of The Crown, a popular Netflix series.

This is not the first time (and certainly not the last time), when Netflix users were targeted with an email scam.
Netflix subscribers are being targeted by an email scam, which warns their accounts are about to be suspended. The screenshots shown above and below surfaced thanks to tech privacy firm Mailguard.
Deadline shared a copy of one of the emails, and it looks professionally done and the email is personalized, which obviously makes subscribers think it's from Netflix, although it's not from a Netflix email address.
