Netflix customers need to be on the lookout for a phishing scam that targets users' personal information, including credit card data.

The Atlanta Journal Constitution reports the scam starts with customers receiving an email that appears to be from Netflix, asking them to update their membership information.

When users click on the link in the email, they are taken to a page that requests their billing and credit card information.

After completing the process, the user is then redirected to the real Netlix website.

Netflix warns that they will never ask for personal information in an email.
