Netflix users are being warned about an email scam targeting the company's millions of subscribers.

According to ABC News, the scam threatens to suspend their accounts if they don't update their billing information.

The email will ask readers to click a link, leading them to a fake Netflix page and asking them to enter their private information, an Australian cyber security firm said.

Netflix told ABC News they are aware of the ongoing scam.

“Unfortunately, scams are common on the internet and target popular brands such as Netflix and other companies with large customer bases to lure users into giving out personal information,” Netflix said in a statement to ABC News.

They said they will never ask for any personal information be sent over email address.

The Australian firm said users will be asked to enter their address, driver's license number, credit card and more.
