Posible Hack attempt

I have received several attempts to "Re-Validate" my comcast email. The most recent one is from <arlo_ketcham@comcast.net. They are asking for my password etc.  Is this a scam or legit?

You’re not going to get a legitimate from that address.

See https://www.xfinity.com/support/articles/comcast-verified-email. Note that the logo is only present when you view your email in Comcast's Xfinity Connect webmail. If the logo is missing in webmail, the message is bogus.

I have been ignoring these "validate user id" e-mails for some time.  Is there a way to make them stop?  They each come from a different e-mail address.
