Fraudulant Emails

I have been recieving a number of Phising emails most coming from the comcast.net domain.  Many are posing to be banks alerting users to Unusual Activity on their account and provide a link to user to verify their account. These emails look real, including the bank's logo and many people would be fooled.  Upon further examination the email came from the comcast.net domain and link take the user to a web page that is not in the bank's domain.

 

Is there something that can be done to stop these frudulent emails? I can provide the email address from which the email originated, but it is problably spoofed.

Including headers, copy and paste the email into a new email and send it to abuse@comcast.net.

Also, go to the banks' websites and search out how to send them abuse reports.
