Mailguard has revealed that the fake site directs users to the real Netflix webpage after entering their details.

The Melbourne-based web security firm claims that Netflix has “become a favourite vehicle for email fraudsters”.

“Their large customer base makes them a valuable target for brandjacking – cybercrime that exploits the trademarks of well-known companies to deceive victims”.
