We recently failed to validate your payment information we hold on record for your account,
therefore we need to ask you to complete a brief validation process in order to verify your billing and payment details.
Failure to complete the validation process will result in a suspension of your netflix membership.
We take every step needed to automatically validate our users, unfortunately in this case we were unable to verify your details.
This process will take a couple of minutes
and will allow us to maintain our high standard of account security.

This message was mailed automatically by Netflix during routine security checks. We are not completely satisfied with your account information and required you to update your account to continue using our services uniterrupted.
I removed the email addresses to keep myself out of trouble with WordPress (again).
This is obviously an attempt to get me to provide them with personal and/or banking information. The first indicator of that is that it wasn’t addressed to me personally. If they want to verify my account information, surely they’d have my name at least. The second indicator this is a scam is quite simple really. I don’t have a Netflix account, so there is no information to be verified.
Also, the English is not what you would expect to find from a company such as Netflix. The mixture of tenses and the misspelling of “uninterrupted” are a dead giveaway this is not from their corporate account.
If you have a Netflix account and you get on of these emails, before you do anything, please, please, check it some other way before giving out any information.
Happy viewing and remember to hug an artist, we need love too.
