Netflix phishing scam looks to steal credit card details from iPhone users

The emails seem to originate from Apple, and they appear to contain receipts for purchases that you’d normally get in your email – if you have an Apple ID account and buy stuff from Apple’s digital stores. This particular receipt concerns Netflix, and it tries convince you that someone impersonating you has gained access to your Apple account to subscribe to Netflix. Naturally, you’ll want to put a stop to it by clicking the available “refund” or “manage subscriptions” links in that email. You’ll then get to a website that looks like Apple’s where you have to enter your account and credit card details for the refund. But what really happens is that those details are delivered straight to the scammers. – Chris Smith, BGR
