Multiple emails from ?variable?@comcast.net Phishing account info at various Banks

As stated in subject, many bogus emails.  A high percentage of which came someuserid@comcast.net. I wished I had saved all the bogus emails. My question is where do I send /forward them to Comcast so that they can be reviewed/investigated???

I have always marked them as spam or else used the unsubscribe link.  I hardly get any now.

For instructions, visit http://constantguard.comcast.net/help/report-abuse/. Scroll about halfway down the page and click "Report Spam and Phishing Emails", then scroll down to "Report Phishing Emails". Also Google the bank name + phishing and send a report to that address as well.

That's terrible advice. Users should NEVER click ANY link in ANY spam, scam, or phishing email. It only confirms that your address is "live" and invites more of the same.

OK, I'll remember that.  Thanks.

Thank You for your pointing out how to prepare and send bogus/phishing/etc emails to Comcast for review.  Will they do anything with them???
