I receive many obvious spam emails and I usually just delete them but I received today an phishing email trying to get me to enter my banking information.  What concerns me is that this phishing scam used a Comcast.net email account.  I'm pasting below a copy of this email and want to know how to report it to Comcast so they can take punitive action against this account...

Even if it's a real Comcast account, the odds are it's owner isn't aware of it being used for nefarious purposes.
