Netflix phishing scam asks for your payment info [Update]
Update 3:47pm CT, Nov. 6: Another phishing scam has been circulating. It contains similar language about billing info but instead of alerting subscribers that their account is disabled, this one says, “Your suspension notification,” and asks recipients to “restart” their membership.
Subscribers have reportedly received emails that claim trouble with billing information, and ask customers to update payment info. Some versions of the email have asked for bank account info, which is not something Netflix would ask for over email. If you receive this email, do not click on any links, and definitely question why “Aleksander” is being so casual.
Tweeps, beware this Netflix email scam. DO NOT click any links in the email. pic.twitter.com/m8Pv3glGCT

Another version of this scam circulated earlier this year, and urged subscribers to update their credit card info and social security number, which is, again, not something Netflix requires.
