Yes it is a phishing attempt. The major clue that it is a phish attempt is the fact that there is a link which someone wants you to click on and enter your informartion.
Be suspicious of any email or phone call that asks for your personal account information, such as user names, passwords, and account numbers. Email, phone calls, text messages, instant messages, or Web logs that appear to come from a reliable source may not always be authentic
Be aware that Comcast will NEVER ask you for password information over the phone or email
Comcast will NEVER ask for billing or payment information through email
