Sure looks like a fishing email...   you can check this yourself by going into your email and right clicking on the email and select View Source....   Look in the Recived from field to verify the actual address that was used to generate the email to you...

Re: is this message from Comcast spam?

YES, it is a phishing attempt.

 

Please read this Comcast Email Phish or Legit? How to Tell (and rules for posting about your mail) clickable link.

 

It contains very useful information about mail that purports to be from Comcast.

By the time you get through reading it YOU will be an expert on HOW to know that the mail is a phishing attempt.
