See if the following info helps you decide not to click on the link:

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.'

"See if the following info helps you decide not to click on the link:"

 

TL;DR

 

NEVER CLICK ON A LINK in an email message. NEVER!

 

Never respond to this sort of thing (except to report the phishing attempt, if you wish). 

 

Best thing you can do? Use a strong password on your Comcast/Xfinity account and change it regularly.

 

Comcast needs to incorporate 2FA for its subscribers.
