MultiChoice SCAM

I just got the following email from MultiChoice, please be aware as this is true!

"It has come to our attention that there is currently a scam e-mail asking MultiChoice customers to click on a link and share their identity and credit card numbers. MultiChoice will never ask for your details via e-mail or telephonically, unless you have called the Call Centre.
If you have clicked on the link and inserted your details, please cancel your credit card with your bank immediately. If you are registered for self-service on the DStv website, please visit the website and change your password. Always log onto the DStv website by typing in the website address.
