Scam calls with ID "1-800-266-2278 COMCAST"!

Just received an obvious scam call with that ID from a noisy Indian call senter.  The caller wanted to help me "restore my 90Mbps service" which is odd as we have Gigabit service that works great.  He wanted me to start some diagnostics that would have given him access to my PC, but by my responses he obviously guessed that I had him sussed & hung up.

 

Why is Comcast allowing scam calls through to its own voice customers that are clearly using what CC should know is a spoofed ID?  And why is Nomorobo not catching them?
