current email scams

Is anyone aware of a new scam sent as an email saying your account will be closed down if you don't respond? There's nothing wrong with the account and it's paid up to date and always is.

It's not a new scam.  It's been around for years.

Re: current email scams

If you check your email with Comcast's Xfinity Connect webmail, look for the XFINITY Verified Email logo next to any message that claims to be from Comcast/Xfinity (see https://www.xfinity.com/support/articles/comcast-verified-email).

Please see Comcast Email Phish or Legit? How to Tell (and rules for posting) for more information about identifying, reporting, and posting phishing emails. The article is somewhat out of date, but still useful.

Samples of recent phishing messages can be found at http://constantguard.comcast.net/help/alerts under "Top Phishing Scams".
