Hello - I am using a lab computer at the senior center, and this window popped up:

Dear Comcast Business Communications Customer from Bothell,

Serious security threats might have been detected on 3/18/2015 @ 14:32. Your personal photos, creditcard information and passwords might have been compromised.

It is highly recommended you do NOT continue using your computer until you've contacted an official technician. Your IP (50.78.43.164) might be targeted right now.

Please call this number as soon as possible.
1-888-735-8618
An official technician will help you remove any adware/spyware on your computer.

 

I tried to call support to let them know about this, but the phone signal is so bad that I couldn't hear half of what he said.  So I am posting this in hope that it will be helpful.

Re: is this a scam?

Yes, it is a phishing scam. Becareful in what you click and don't call. Close your browser, update your anti-virus and run it.

 

Good luck
