Shirleen Allicot reports on a warning from Netflix about a phishing scam.

NEW YORK (WABC) -- Netflix customers are encouraged to beware, as new online phishing scams are targeting people's bank accounts.

An email that looks like it is from Netflix has been going to its customers. It claims there has been a billing error and payment information needs to be updated.

The customers are given a link to a fake website.

Officials are telling users not to click on any links.

Instead, they're advised to log directly into the Netflix website to check their account.
