Do NOT Click On This Email From 'Netflix'

According to the Mailguard Blog, there is an easy way to spot the scam: for whatever reason, while the email addresses of Netflix users were successfully acquired by the scammers, the first names of the users were not.

The emails were created to look like they been coming directly from Netflix, and informs recipients they need to update their payment details.
