Although the original post was removed, all that was wrong with it was the inclusion of the link and I feel the OP deserves an answer, so I will  recreate their post and BruceW's response:

 

did anyone else receive this email?

Re: Phishing

It's a phishing email, a scammer attempt to steal login and account information.

Please edit your message to remove the phishing link. To edit, log in to the Forums and, while viewing your message, click Options, Edit Message.

 

Please see Comcast Email Phish or Legit? How to Tell (and rules for posting) for more information about identifying, reporting, and posting phishing emails. The article is somewhat out of date, but still useful.

 

Samples of recent phishing messages can be found at http://constantguard.comcast.net/help/alerts under "Top Phishing Scams".

 

A veteran - whether active duty, retired, national guard, or reserve - is someone who, at one point in his or her life, wrote a blank check made payable to The 'United States of America', for an amount of 'up to and including my life.'
