NETFLIX customers have been targeted by scammers sending fake emails.

Action Fraud has warned people to watch out for the emails, telling customers there is a problem with their account or their account has been suspended.

Customers are told they need to update their account details, and the email includes a link to genuine looking Netflix websites.

The phishing websites are designed to steal usernames and passwords, as well as payment details.

Action Fraud said: "Always question unsolicited requests for your personal or financial information in case it’s a scam.

"Never automatically click on a link in an unexpected email or text."
