Posted by MailGuard on 10 January 2022 15:05:23 AEDT

Got an email from Netflix claiming ‘Your Account Has Been Blocked’? Take care, it’s likely to be the latest scam email that is now being intercepted by MailGuard. The email asks customers to ‘Update current billing information’, advising that the service is ‘unable to approve your payment for your next subscription cycle’.


Sent from ‘Support’, the sender email is actually ‘support(at)cu-newyearparty2022(dot)com’,  a domain address registered within the last month, and not an official Netflix account. The mail server is hosted in Japan, and the websites' domain appears to be registered in India, hosted by Newfold Digital, a very large web hosting company.
