Phishing and spam

Despite labeling these as spam, I get these every day.  More, it seems, after I report it to xfinity.

If anyone from Comcast / Xfinity monitors this, I'd like to ask why these cannot be filtered out.  Some use your logo.  There have to be thousands of these hitting the servers all the time.  Today's best was an alleged "notification of a new login" from someplace in the country we are not, which also seems suspect.

 

Who in your organization is making this possible?  I cannot believe that outsiders would be doing such a fantastic job of targeting comcast emails with sent addresses also comcast.   Seems like reporting these is like answering a spam phone call, it just lets someone know that the email is active, and then more spam/phishing emails come. 

 

Has anyone else had an increase in these?

Re: Phishing and spam

I get at least 3-5 of these messages every day! Is there really no way for xfinity to block them or send them to a spam folder?

Re: Phishing and spam

after posting yesterday, more insistant spam today:

Sent "from" X~finity <ccmst@internetmailing.net" to "subscriber@comcast.net". 

Why even would I get this? 

Someone wants your email address to be their recovery email.

If you don't recognize this email address, disconnect it immediately.
