The new email scam is created to gather personal information of users by convincing them to update their personal information to avoid suspension.

The nearly 110 million Netflix subscribers around the world may need to pay a little more attention than usual to their emails over the next few days.

Deadline reports 110 million Netflix users have been targeted by the phishing emails that prompt them to update account information.

The company says if you clicked the link and provided any personal information, you should immediately change your Netflix password and contact your financial institution.

This isn't the first time Netflix customers have been targeted by scammers. The email contains a link with the subject line "Your suspension notification".

Users are encouraged to give their log-in details and their credit card info in order to prevent their account from being suspended.

The company advises customers to delete any email that looks suspicious.

"Obviously we'd love to have you back, click restart your membership to update your details and continue to enjoy all the best TV shows & movies without interruption", the email reads.

Netflix told USA Today that the emails are fake, and don't come from the company.

Scammers are trying to lure the public into sharing their information by claiming they've won a year's free subscription to Netflix. It might be helpful while spotting a Netflix email scam. This means, the email could target subscribers to steal their personal and credit card information.

Netflix said it is aware of the ongoing scam, adding that the company takes security seriously and has measures in place to detect fraudulent activity.
