Netflix users in Ireland are being advised to be extra vigilant about the threat of a major email scam.

According to an IT Security firm the 'fake message' asks users to click on a link on their screen and update their credit card details or else their account will be cancelled.

According to IT security firm Smarttech.ie, the fake message asks users to click on a link to update their credit card details, or face cancellation of their Netflix account.

“Phishing scams like the Netflix one, pray on peoples tendency to trust the authenticity of message and the company logo. Once the criminals carrying out the scam have collected enough information from the unsuspecting victims, they can use it for credit card fraud or identity theft,” explained chief executive of Smarttech.ie Ronan Murphy.
