how do I report phishing e-mails?

Is there an address to which I can forward phishing e-mails?  I've gotten two in the last week.  Answers I have found here so far are years old and not helpful.

For instructions, visit http://constantguard.comcast.net/help/report-abuse/ and click "Report Spam and Phishing Emails" about half way down the page, then scroll down to "Report Phishing Emails".

Thanks.  I didn't know your message was here until I got an e-mail from Comcast today asking me if it helped.  I think I did it right.  The header was resistant to being copied and pasted.

This link is not correct. It takes you to a page for reporting abuse, harassment and pornography.

You have to click the "Report Spam and Phishing Emails" link about half way down the page, and then scroll down to "Report Phishing Emails". Unfortunately the design of the page does not seem to permit linking to this directly:

 


Report Phishing Emails
 

When reporting phishing emails, it is critical that you send us the email headers. Please do not forward the phishing email. Forwarding the email will remove the original headers.

 


Report phishing email sent to or from a Comcast.net email account

 

Once you have copied the full message headers from the spam message, paste the header and the message into an email and send it to abuse@comcast.net with the subject line "Phishing email."
