A new Netflix scam involving a fake website is targeting customers by leading them to phony customer service representatives, according to the Huffington Post.

According to reports, users will arrive at a fake website that looks similar to the Netflix login page. Once a Netflix user has entered their username and password, a notification alerts them that their account has been suspended and gives them a customer service phone number.
