New Netflix Scam a Threat to Your Credit Card Info | #coronavirus | #scams | #covid19


The COVID-19 pandemic seems to have opened that portion of Pandora’s box where all the scammers and phishers dwell.

I don’t know about you, but I’ve been getting a LOT of phishing emails lately, and, fortunately, it’s pretty obvious that’s what they are.

But there’s a new Netflix scam among us that might not be so obvious and we all need to be aware of it.

Now, unlike most of the scams we have to deal with, this one will not come in a phone call. This will come in your email inbox, so be aware. Again, the language in a phishing email can, at times, make it obvious there is skulduggery afoot, but sometimes, perpetrators can be too clever for OUR own good.

Here’s the deal…you might receive an email from “Netflix support”  that will feature a link. Now this is where it gets pretty clever.

According to a story in Forbes, if you were to click that link, you’d be directed to one of those CAPTCHA pages. You know, where they ask you to identify how many pictures feature a bicycle or traffic lights or something?

Well anyway, this CAPTCHA page will look completely legit–with Netflix branding and everything.

If you fill in the requested information, you’ll be sent to a phony Netflix site which could, then, steal your login credentials, billing address information, and, worse, your credit card/debit card details.

Also, it’s important to know that the URL will not say Netflix.com but axxisgeo.com, a dead giveaway.

Scams have really been amping up the past six months and we all must be far more vigilant than we ever have before.
