nchdan, 

 

If you believe someone is accessing your account, I encourage you to reach out to the customer security assurance team here: 1-888-565-4329 or visit: https://internetsecurity.xfinity.com/help/report-abuse/

 

 

I can also log out all the devices that are using your username and password which will provide you with the opportunity to change your password to secure your account.

Re: contact from comcast

That 1-800 number you listed isn't a Comcast number and an employee wouldn't be using an @comcast.net email address either.  It sure looks like a phising scam to me.
