Netflix Spam - Your Netflix Membership is on hold - netflix-restrictions.com

 

This is a well targeted spam, even if it appears to be caught by most antispam filters before first contact.

They have even bought a custom domain name but perhaps that was their first mistake...

 

 

 

Anyway the email arrives thus: 

 

From:                                         Netflix <contact@netflix.ssl.com>

Sent:                                           03 November 2017 10:26

Subject:                                     Your Netflix Membership is on hold

 

 

 



We recently failed to validate your payment information we hold on record for your account,
therefore we need to ask you to complete a brief validation process in order to verify your billing and payment details.

Click here to verify your account

Failure to complete the validation process will result in a suspension of your netflix membership.

We take every step needed to automatically validate our users, unfortunately in this case we were unable to verify your details.

This process will only take a couple of minutes
and will allow us to maintain our high standard of account security.

This message was mailed automatically by Netflix during routine security checks. We are not completely satisfied with your account information and required you to update your account to continue using our services uniterrupted.

 

 

 

 

And beside misspelling uninterrupted, the email is fairly believable as this kind of thing happens all the time.

Hovering over the link reveals: webcmd.netflixusersupport.billingupdate.netflix-restrictions.com which is not a valid Netflix.com domain, but then PayPal use all sorts of paypal-notification.com type domains.

Either way the domain had been shut down by Netflix already and so no great worries here but bear in mind they will be targeting other pay per view services and will have a new website in no time so beware.

 

But still enjoy the internet and be safe!
