Netflix users are being warned to be vigilant as a new email scam is targeting customers.

Users have reported that an official looking email that is said to be very "convincing" has been doing the rounds since Friday and is targeting subscribers in an attempt to steal their credit card information.

Australian cyber security company MailGuard reported that the email is subjected 'Your suspension notification' and it is being sent to users telling them that their account will be cancelled unless they input new credit or debit card details.

The email reads as follows:

"We were unable to validate your billing information for the next billing cycle of your subscription therefore we’ll suspend your membership if we do not receive a response from you within 48 hours."

It looks like this:

If you click the link you will be taken to a page which will feature the Netflix logo and asked for your full name, date of birth, address and payment details.

Users of the popular streaming service worldwide are being advised by experts not to update their billing information as the email requests, as your card information could be stolen.
