Don't fall for this Netflix phishing scam
The Consumerist points us to a scam today that is attempting to get Netflix subscribers to hand over their credit card information to scammers. Some some subscribers are getting the following e-mail:
"Dear Netflix Member,
Your payment method was declined for one of several reasons, such as insufficient funds or an expired credit card.
To correct the problem, please update your credit card or add a new one in order to be able to use your Netflix account in the future.
This is a reminder to update your credit card as soon as possible.
Please download the form attached to this email, unzip it and open it in a web browser.
Once opened, you will be provided with steps to update your account.
We appreciate your understanding as we work to ensure your account safety.

Obviously, no legitimate company would ever ask you to download an attachment to update you account information. You can correct information yourself by calling the company directly, or going into the membership services section of the website.
