Just had an e-mail from info@mailer.netflix.com with a link to finish setting up. I might be wrong but seems like a scam maybe timed to catch those self isolating.

I had one of those as well. I tried to report it to Netflix as a scam but couldn't find any way of doing that on their website, so I deleted it.

I suppose it could be a new marketing strategy frown

Had the Netflix one. Also a 'TV licence' scam going round saying they haven't been able to take direct debit payment, and could I re-enter my bank details ........

Most email services have an option to flag a message as a phishing scam, which also deletes it from your inbox.

For those who don't know, a phishing scam is when you receive an email asking for details such as a log-in or bank numbers as a response and the mails are almost identical to an actual company. As posted above, the sender address is usually a slightly off variant to fool the casual reader.
