Do not fall! False message from Microsoft and Netflix is stealing user data
Neither Netflix nor Microsoft send text messages requesting data.
Through social networks, several users have made known a new form of scam, which this time involves Microsoft and Netflix.
Users receive a text message on their cell phone in which, in the case of Microsoft, ensure that your personal account will be suspended in four hours unless verified. As for Netflix, the text says that the payment method could not be processed so you must follow some steps to avoid losing the service.
In both cases, the message will be accompanied by a link for users to “solve” the problem.. The URL takes the person to a page that will end up stealing personal data, including credit cards.
The two links in the text messages have web pages that have the company name misspelled.
Do not fall into the trap, avoid entering the link that accompanies the messages and ignore them. Neither Netflix nor Microsoft send text messages requesting any kind of data.
