Danish company accused of impersonating Netflix with scam offers
The Danish company Weneverloseit.com has been accused of claiming to be the popular video-streaming provider Netflix and offering discount subscriptions without delivering the service, BT reports.
The company has an average score of 1.1 out of 10 on the business review website Trustpilot, with 90.4 percent of the reviews giving it the minimum 1 star rating.
Netflix: looking at the case
“I wanted to sign up for Netflix, but it turned out it was Weneverloseit using Netflix’s logo. I discovered it and wrote to the company… no reply,” one Trustpilot reviewer wrote.
Several other reviewers describe signing up for a three-month trial of Netflix for 5 kroner, not receiving access to the service, and seven days later being charged 399 kroner a month for a recurring subscription.
The actual cost of a Netflix subscription is 79 kroner a month.
Netflix’s security department told BT it was “looking at the case” and that over the last two weeks 60 percent of the calls to the company’s Danish division had concerned Weneverloseit.com.
