Possible Comcast VOIP Scam or Hacking Attempt

Possible Comcast VOIP Scam or Hacking Attempt

I am getting phone calls with caller ID numbers that are 5,8 & 11 numbers long. When I answer the phone, after saying hello several times, the caller hangs up. Once, someone answered and said they were calling about my computer problems. I believe that there may be someone trying to hack into the Comcast system to access PCs of their customers or some other scam. I do not use any Comcast provided internet access equipment other than the VOIP modem. The purpose of this post is to alert Comcast of this issue and  customers that may be using combination internet and VOIP gateways provided by Comcast. If someone has an explanation of why I am experiencing this issue, please reply.
