Netflix subscribers targeted in 'relatively well-designed' email scam

A recent #email scam is targeting about 110 million Netflixsubscribers.
"This works like a mail-merge; the body of the email is generic, but the sender field is created to show the name of the intended victim, which personalises the scam making it more convincing", Mailguardwrites in its blog.
Mailguard, a company that protects businesses against scammers and phishers took a screenshot of the email scam.
Netflix subscribers, beware of a fake email that's going around.
In other words, if you get a note like this from Netflix, or anyone else, don't just go clicking on any links inside.
The scam email claims the target has been "selected from thousands" to win the prize and, in a classic scam tactic, they're implored to act quickly and fill out a form before the prize is withdrawn. If subscribers have questions about their account status, Netflix said they can visit netflix.com/security to read up on on the company's security protocols, or contact customer service about the status of their billings and payment methods. The email tells customers that their account is about to be canceled and that Netflix needs their billing information. Once they are in, they can easily make any website look like anything they want it to be, such as a legitimate-looking Netflix login page, to trick users into providing important information.
The service said it employs numerous protective measure to detect fraud and keep accounts secure. It then directs them to a fake Netflix website, where customers are asked to log in and enter their personal information.
