Social media users are facing another Corona virus scam ! A link that Netflix offers a free subscription is circulating in messages among people. A Netflix spokesperson confirmed that he did not participate in a promotion such as a free subscription offer under the company's Corona virus pandemic .
Netflix has always been an easy target for cybercriminals on phishing plans to steal personal data. With this method, fraudsters try to trick Netflix users and also capture billing information and other data in emails.
Several Twitter users tweeted messages Monday that Netflix offers a free subscription. Tweet also included a link to a web address. The fake promotion seems to still circulate by SMS. Another user sent a tweet containing a picture of an incoming SMS about the fake offer.
This is the message of the malicious site that sends the message, " Because of the Covid-19 pandemic , we provide completely free access to our platform during the isolation period until the virus is found." The campaign then asks visitors to complete a short questionnaire so they can access free membership. When the process is completed, users are asked to send the link to 10 people via WhatsApp to activate the subscription. The site also has fake Facebook comments that get tons of positive references from users.
One of the things that made this fake campaign convincing may be activities such as the game developers who have been offering some of their games for free recently. However, Netflix is not one of these services.
