Dear Customer,

We recently failed to validate your payment information we hold on record for your account, therefore we need to ask you to complete a brief validation process in order to verify your billing and payment details. Click here to verify your account [**PHISHING LINK**] Failure to complete the validation process will result in a suspension of your netflix membership. We take every step needed to automatically validate our users, unfortunately in this case we were unable to verify your details. The process will only take a couple of minutes and will allow us to maintain our high standard of account security.
