xfinity scam e-mails...

I received an e-mail that appears to be from xfinity, but includes a link that is NOT xfinity:

If this is a scam, why is this not being reported on the xfinity site. I don't see any mention of this. I'm not the first to get this kind of e-mail. Anybody else??

Re: xfinity scam e-mails...

Did you follow the 'reporting abuse' instructions on the Xfinity web site, https://www.xfinity.com/support/articles/phishing-scams?  Maybe you were the first to get this email.  I don't recall seeing any spam alert notifications coming from Xfinity or on their website in the past.

Thanks! That's exactly the kind of info I was looking for, but it just wasn't jumping out at me! I've e-mailed the abuse team.
