Customers of streaming service Netflix should be aware of scam emails which look almost identical to legitimate emails from the streaming service.

Customers have reported the emails come from "NETFLlX”, spelled using a lower-case L instead of an I.  The subject line reads "We've temporarily suspended your account until you verify your details.

The email tells customers their account has been suspended and requests they update their details. Clicking on the link will take you to a fake site which requires you to login and enter your credit card details.

Scamwatch has warned people to be wary of the scam email and urged people to be mindful before entering personal details online.
