Some one called me and said he is calling from Comcast concerning internet issues but the number did not reflect as Comcast. For security reasons I want to know if this telephone number is for COMCAST

+1 844 482 6747.

According to the message posted by employee ComcastAndrew at http://forums.xfinity.com/t5/Customer-Service/Voicemail-from-844-482-6747-claims-to-be-from-Comcast-..., 844-482-6747 is legitimate and safe to call.

 

Receiving a call from that number is another matter, since scammers can spoof their caller ID to make it look like they are calling from Comcast when they are actually not.

Whenever you are unsure about a message claiming to be from Comcast, check with them using the phone number printed on your bill, or one of the methods listed on the official "Contact Us" page at http://customer.xfinity.com/contact-us/. That page should list 1-800-Xfinity (1-800-934-6489) or 1-800-Comcast (1-800-266-2278), and a link for Chat: https://www.comcastsupport.com/chatentry/.

 

If the regular reps can't help you, try Comcast Security Assurance at 1-888-565-4329 (from http://constantguard.comcast.net/help/report-abuse/).

Perhaps this will clear things up for you:

 

http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-844-482-6747

 

BTW whenever I need to check out a number - I have found 800 notes to be a good source.

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.'

But...... the 800notes is split about 50/50 of people stating it is really Comcasdt and those saying it's bogus....

I have been getting these calls for a month.  Recently, Comcast told me to BLOCK this phone number.....so I guess I am in the camp of "bogus"

Hello all,

BruceW is correct, this is a spoofing scam. We will never ask for money, ask to access your account, or want to take over your computer. Also, if you are to get a call stating they are Comcast and want to offer you a better promo, beware of this tactic as well.
