"Then, the victim is redirected to pages that falsely claim that they are on the 'final step' to achieve activation, when what is really happening is that they are stealing information from users’ mobile phones for different types of subscriptions, or opening the system’s messaging application in order to send an SMS to a premium number with a certain text or even encouraging users to download applications from unofficial sites."
This isn't the first time fraudsters have abused WhatsApp, and it's not their first Netflix-themed lure, either. Bad actors will without a doubt continue to leverage social media platforms such as WhatsApp and trusted brands like Netflix to trick unsuspecting users. With that in mind, users need to be vigilant against offers that appear too good to be true. They also need to exercise caution around suspicious links and messages.
If you fell for the scam above, notify your contacts not to click on the link you sent them. You should then review your phone for any new applications you downloaded via the scam and uninstall them immediately. Finally, you should contact your mobile service provider and verify with them that the scam did not subscribe your phone number with any premium SMS services.
