Mike Timmermann,

If you receive an email that looks suspicious, do not click on the link in the email! 

Instead, go directly to Netflix’s official website and log in to your account to see if you truly need to update your billing information. You can also call the customer service number listed on, 866-579-7172.

These are good rules to follow anytime you receive an email asking for personal information, not just with this scam.
