NETFLIX customers have been targeted in a phishing scam with NSW Police warning users of Stranger Things happening with a fake email.

The scam uses fake Netflix branding in an email asking users to update their payment details which then allows cybercriminals to harvest victim’s credit card details.

NSW Police tweeted the warning on Wednesday with a link to an explanation of the scam from security service company MailGuard.

Stranger Things is a Netflix science fiction drama series. Comment is being sought from Netflix.
