An email purporting to be from Netflix stating that prices are going up appears to be a phishing scam, the media streaming service says. The email, which was received by a New Zealand customer, claimed that Netflix was increasing its price to $14.99 per month from December 22. "When we previously raised prices, we kept your price the same. Your special pricing is now ending," says the email, from "the Netflix Team". It comes from the address email@example.com.
