    I just received this obvious attempt to get personal info by some dude using "gmail" account. Here is a paste of the email. If you get one of these do not click on the link. You will be redirected to a site that asks for info that will steal your identity and likely other nefarious things. If you get one of these, DO NOT do as instructed. Look at your bill and call your customer service BY PHONE to verify what this is.

    Here is a paste of that email. The links will not work on this forum post.

    Hello! COMCAST Email users!

    FYI... Comcast would not be using a "gmail" account. gmail is Google and a competitor of Comcast in email and cable.

    Yeah I get those fairly regularly from "Cox" as well, many different excuses but always the same old stuff "go here and put in your info or your account will be locked Etc." I just forward them on to the real Cox folks.
