Update of 10 January 2017: Meanwhile, other, appeared completely free opportunities in the network to come to Netflix account flat rates, to pay to the service without paying a cent for it. But even this work based on the Netflix account generator. While here, the user needs to download not specifically a tool and can be captured no malware. Instead, online user data of users are provided simply who the providers procured through illegal channels. Astonishing of all: These pages even warn against downloading appropriate tools because they could capture malware as a result. Presumably, this warning is intended to increase credibility.
If someone noticed such a page: The best report directly. These are a scam. Even if you yourself once is not damaged, users whose accounts are shared so without their knowledge, have to fight with the most damage, but they pay with others. In addition, their user data are circulating freely online. And that can happen to anyone who is not careful enough or falls into the clutches of fraudsters. If you simply engaging in such accounts, also violates the Netflix guidelines. And that is illegal turn.
