Computer security experts are warning Netflix customers of a scam circulating the Internet.

According to Internet security firm Malwarebytes, hackers are using a phony webpage that looks a lot like the Netflix login page to get unsuspecting customers to enter their account info.

And when they do, a fake site pops up claiming the account is suspended because of "unusual activity".

It gives a bogus 1-800 number to regain access.

But, do not call that number.

Experts say those who have were directed to download Netflix support software that gave scammers complete access to their computer.
