Netflix phishing email warning

Just receieved an email containing the following:
Quote
Subscription Payment Failure
Dear customer,
Each month we automatically attempt to renew your subscription based on the preferences you selected when you signed up to Netflix. We have recently attempted to debit your registered payment method and unfortunately the payment attempt has failed. Due to the auto-renewal payment failure for your subscription, we have temporarily limited your services until your account has been validated.
Please click the button below to validate your account in order for your subscription to continue.
Validate my Account


The usual pointers to being a scam are there; Dear customer, the Validate my Account link doesn't go to NetFlix and, most importantly, I don't have a NetFlix account  Roll eyes
Anyway, just a heads up.
