Whenever major platforms or portals change their terms of use, scammers seem to target consumer uncertainty. This is particularly true of Netflix, which wants to stop account sharing. Which scams you should be prepared for.

In the case of Netflix, the streaming portal warns of current phishing attacks on its website. Fraudsters take advantage of the fact that subscribers often do not know precisely what the new terms and conditions mean for them and whether they are possibly in debt to the provider.

Fake emails look deceptively real.
The senders of phishing emails go to great lengths when falsifying electronic mail. The circulated Netflix emails often contain current film and series recommendations and appear deceptively genuine. Therefore, the request for such emails is not to click on the links or buttons and delete obvious phishing emails directly.

If it is too late and you have fallen for such a scam as a subscriber, you should immediately change your password or inform your bank if you have disclosed your account details. In addition, you should file a complaint with the police, especially if you have suffered financial damage.

Warning also for Disney+
Netflix is not the only provider that has to deal with such methods. There are currently warnings of similar attacks in the name of Disney+.

The “Phishing Radar” of the consumer advice centre makes clear how frequent such fraudulent incidents are. It currently warns against fraud emails in the name of DKB, Postbank, Volksbank or PayPal.
