The motherfuckers will ask you to update your payment details, obviously, but really they're just milking your monies.

Don't handover your info if you see this email, in fact it's probably best to never hand it over:

The text reads: "We face some difficulties with the current billing information of your own.

"We will try again, but please at the same time you [sic] update your payment details."

There is a red button that tells you to "Update Account now" at the end of the email.

Action Fraud issued the warning after an example of the fake emails was reported to them.
