phishing email?

phishing email?

I've received an email from ADMIN claiming that the Message Center has noticed that my email account has almost exceeded its limit.  It says that I may not be able to send/receive messages if I don't upgrade.


I do expect that this is a fake email.   Can anyone confirm or deny this?

Re: phishing email?

It certainly sounds like a scam. If you're using Comcast's webmail, check for an XFINITY Verified Email symbol outside the body of the message. See https://www.xfinity.com/support/internet/guide-to-icons-in-xfinity-connect/ for examples, and Comcast Email Phish or Legit? How to Tell (and rules for posting) for more information about identifying, reporting, and posting phishing emails.
