Netflix Scam - Police Warning

Police Scotland have issued an alert about a "phishing scam" that is doing the rounds.  Details are as follows:

"There is currently a huge phishing scam ongoing targeting Netflix account holders.  Like a lot of phishing scams these emails are creating a sense of ‘account urgency’ and threatening to suspend accounts users.  The email header reads “Your Suspension Notification” 
The look and feel of the email has a Netflix feel and design to it and threatens to suspend the account in 48hrs, the tone and diction are similar to a legitimate credit card account errors.
If clicked on the link you are taken to legitimate looking landing page site replete with adverts for popular box sets and films where users are requested to input account and billing details.
The advice, as with all phishing emails, is to delete immediately, do not click on any part of the email.  If you wish to check an account mentioned in the email, go directly to the site and log in, do not follow links.  If the account allows, activate 2-factor authentication which won’t allow a criminal access even with the username and password."
