Watch out! Millions of Netflix users target of email scam

The new email scam is created to gather personal information of users by convincing them to update their personal information to avoid suspension.

The fraud aims to gather personal information from Netflix's 110 million subscribers, according to USA Today.

The Netflix email scam, which is designed neatly to look authentic, informs the customers that their account will be canceled unless they update their account information.

If the email makes it through your filters and into your inbox and you decide to take a look, you'll see that the scammers are trying to make you believe Netflix is having an issue validating your billing information.

If you receive an email that appears to be from the Netflix team, be extra vigilant before following the instructions within.

The email "looks quite convincing" and is "relatively well-designed", MailGuard says.

Do not click on any links or open attachments from emails claiming to be from a trusted organisation, asking you to update or verify your details. If subscribers have questions about their account status, Netflix said they can visit to read up on on the company's security protocols, or contact customer service about the status of their billings and payment methods. The email is not from #Netflix, and subscribers should know that it is a scam to trick people to give their credit card information, according to Deadline. Once these details are entered, scammers have enough information to steal your identity, or gain access to your bank account or credit card.

The statement also said: "Netflix employs numerous proactive measures to detect fraudulent activity to keep the Netflix service and our members' accounts secure".
