scam warning issued over fake email

 users have been warned to be on the lookout for a scam email, which claims accounts with the streaming service are set to be cancelled.

After technology experts Mailguard warned the 110 million users to be on high alert for the fake email, Australian police have issued a warning for domestic users.

Police have urged the community to watch out for the scam email, which informs recipients their billing information needs to be updated and they must 'restart membership'. 

The hoax email includes a link to a fake website which asks users to log in and enter various types of personal information including a credit card number.

With a subject line 'Your suspension notification', the email claims unless credit card details are provided by the customer their subscription will instantly be shut down.

Complete with logos and a legitimate looking layout, the bogus email is a far cry from the mistake-ridden emails often associated with scammers - leading tech experts to urge users to be extra cautious.

Police are warning those who receive the email to avoid clicking on any links or open attachments from any trusted organisation.

'Just hit delete,' Queensland Police media warned in their statement.

'If you are suspicious or concerned, do an internet search using the names or exact wording of the email or message to check for any references to a scam – many scams can be identified this way,' police said.
