I realize that members on this forum would never fall for this, but it amazes me how well orchestrated these scams are.



From the Huffington Post:
Quote:
Users being targeted by the scam will see a phony webpage modeled after the Netflix login page. When a user enters Netflix account info, the scam site claims that the user's Netflix account has been suspended due to "unusual activity" and then provides a fake customer service number. When the user calls that number, a representative on the phone recommends a download of "Netflix support software," which is actually remote login software that gives the scammers complete access to your computer. The scammers may also ask for copies of photo IDs or credit cards.

The average user would not be wary but might fall for this. The rest, well, the virus is easy to pick up at any number of web sites and is keyed to a users netflix account. Without that link it sits dormant.
