(WHEC) — A new warning is out for an online scam that tries to get access to your Instagram account.

It's a phishing email scam that claims your Instagram account will be suspended within 24 hours because of copyright violations. If you click on the link in the email hackers can get your information, hijack your Instagram account, and hold it for ransom.

Researchers at the Kaspersky Lab detailed the phishing campaign back in March.
