Once the cybercriminals have received the stolen Comcast credentials, they will use it to hijack their potential victims’ accounts and use the accounts fraudulently. This is why Comcast customers should never click on links in email messages to sign into their accounts, they should instead, go directly to https://www.xfinity.com/ and sign into their email accounts from there. If there is someone that needs to be done their accounts, they will be notified after signing in.

Comcast customers who have been tricked by the phishing scam are asked to contact Comcast for help.

    I received one of those phony emails & I replied by asking for further details and/or a phone number. I did not expect

    to hear from them again and I haven’t.
