I have been a Comcast customer for a while now. I just got a notification from the credit bureaus that Comcast sent 3 accounts tied to my SS# into collections. Something is really wrong here!! How can 3 accounts be setup using my SS# and 3 different addresses? And they all got sent to collections within 5 months of last year. I now have to take all these steps to have these items removed from my credit history becuase it killed my credit score. I am considering litigation due to the fact I don't know what this has cost me on the back end. To me it seems like an inside job within Comcast themself. They are doing alot of mishandling of its customer's personal info... And it seems like there is no way to fast-track the resolution
