It’s reported that Netflix customers are being sent a convincing looking message as part of a “sophisticated” scam.

The e-mail features the streaming giant’s logo and even the sender is labelled as Netflix to make it appear more authentic.

The scam message has in bold at the top ‘payment declined’ and claims the customer’s payment details could not be processed.

It asks the Netflix user to update their credit card details and even encourages them to visit the official Help Centre for more help.

However, this is all a double bluff as the e-mail was not sent by Netflix but by cyber criminals.

The scam was discovered by cyber security experts Mailguard.
