Received Comcast / Xfinity Scam Voicemail on Phone
I received the following voice message on my phone yesterday: "Hi there, I'm calling you from Comcast Xfinity to let you know that your existing account is qualify for 50% off in order to available discount kindly call us back at (redacted) from 8 AM to 5 PM pacific standard time thank you and have a great day." Due to the grammatical errors in the message and the fact that it's highly unlikely for me to get half off my bill, I did not call them back but thought you might want to know.

I just received the same call myself. The number they called from was from Ventura, California but the number they said to call back was a (855) number.
out of curiosity I called back and all of the automated recordings sound very well made, even says to press 1 for bill, 2 for another department, 3 for another department or press 0 for all other related calls.
even had some music and an automated record saying how many people are ahead of you, please wait patiently.
Wait was about 2 minutes and they asked for me for my number which I offered, they already called me didn’t see a point in lying about that, and asked how much I’m currently paying. I answered I don’t know and they immediately hung up on me.
