Phishing Email from a Comcast address

I have received 2 phishing emails from an address @comcast.net. Not only does Comcast do very little to block unwanted spoofed calls but now they are letting people use their platform to send out phishing emails pretending to be from a bank. 

Please clean up your act.

Re: Phishing Email from a Comcast address

You don't really expect or want a company to screen its customers' email text do you?  If you receive a phishing or spam email, follow the instructions provided on the company website for reporting them.  They will investigate and hopefully if they find one of their users is violating usage rules, they will respond appropriately. Abuse Team email: abuse@comcast.net

Re: Phishing Email from a Comcast address

Thank you for the reply and I will take your advice on forwarding the email. I do, however, expect Comcast to monitor illegal activities on their system.

Do not forward.  Follow the directions.  Copy the email with the headers into a new email and send it.

Re: Phishing Email from a Comcast address

Thank you for the reply.

I did read the instructions and forwarded the information to the proper address.

I used the term forward to mean pass along.
