It's almost certainly a scam. See any of the many posts at https://forums.xfinity.com/conversations/search?page=1&sortKey=RECENT&q=scam.

The scammers will have a great deal of info, and the calls will sound like Comcast calls. The scammers will appear to "pay" your current balance, although Comcast will finally realize that the "payment" is bogus and reverse it in a day or two. This scam is a very nasty one.

A competent company would have posted prominent warnings about a scam that appears to use leaked customer data, but Comcast hasn't bothered to do that. They really should.
