Phishing Email Uses a $500 Gift Card to Trick Telstra Users25/11/2019
ALERT – Commonwealth Bank SCAM01/12/2019
Netflix users, don’t panic if you receive an email claiming your Netflix subscription has been put on hold. The popular video streaming platform has once again been spoofed by cybercriminals in a phishing email scam.
MailGuard first detected these malicious emails infiltrating inboxes on the 26th of November.
The emails use a display name of ‘Netflix’ or ‘Support’ and are titled ‘Update required – Netflix account on hold’. The body of the email informs you that your ‘last plan payment’ wasn’t completed and to ensure that your subscription isn’t ‘cancelled,’ you should update your membership details. You may have noted the misspelling of ‘cancelled’ by the cybercriminals – an early warning sign of a fake.
As always, if you believe you may have been scammed, or want to stop these types of emails getting through, please contact the team at Queensland Business Technologies for tips and solutions to keep you safe online.
