Netflix is not refunding people money via ClaimRefund[.]info. The scammers behind the messages are just using the allure of a refund to try to entice people into clicking on the link to the malicious website — where they may be tricked into entering their personal and/or financial information. Any information entered into the site will be accessible by the scammers.
