SPOTIFY customers are being warned to watch out for “convincing-looking” scam emails after a large number of attempts have been reported.
Spotify is a mainstream service, used by millions to access their favourite songs and podcasts.
Updating account details online may not seem unusual, however, action fraud has recently urged customers to watch out. It comes after they received more than 40 reports in January 2020 about fake emails purporting to be from Spotify.
In the emails, the scammers encourage customers to update their account information in order to resolve payment issues.
The link in the emails, worryingly, lead to genuine-looking websites that are designed to steal Spotify login credentials.
The scammers can also steal financial information.
Action Fraud said: “Don’t click on the links or attachments in suspicious emails, and never respond to messages that ask for your personal or financial details.
