I recevied these same email. 3 new accounts within 10 minutes, and it texted my cell phone at the same time. I am trying to figure out if it is a phishing email.
Email is from email@example.com. Is this a legitimate xfinity email? xfinitymobile auto forwards to xfinity.com/mobile, which is xfinity's site, but I cannot tell if the theives auto fw the url so that when I try to check it looks legit. Every single url from the email (ther are 6, includnig service agreement, chat link, contact info, etc.) link through an extremely lengthy URL that does at somepoint use a comcast.net domain. Is comcast.net a legitimate xfinity related domain (who uses the .net domain??).
Email says to call (888) 936-4968. Is this a legit xfinity number? When I call I am redirected to call (844) 963-0011. Is this a legit xfinity number? Both of these numbers brought me to this forum when googling, but still I cannot prove that they are legit xfinity numbers.
The first number was automated and finally got to a person that sounded like they fielded my call in a busy office. It was not professional. When they gave me another number to call (844-963-0011) instead of redirecting me, it also seemed unprofessional, but I called anyway. The 0011 number was even less professional, but the initial prompt did ask me to press 1 if I had an account created that was not authorized. WHen I got to a person the first time it was an absolutely clueless person that hung up on me trying to connect me to someone that could help (after I called and hit the prompt telling them exactly what I was calling about). Also sounded like she was outside. I called back and got another person that was much more helpful and almost sounded professional. Every single contact (three different people among several phone numbers) was not American.
Basically, it is so unprofessionally it screams of phishing, but it is also a very well done phishing exercise and I am most confused that they did my email and texted my cell phone. I would ahve probably ignored the whole thing as phishing if it didn't also text my cell the three order confirmations at the same time it sent my email. I have never had that happen in a scam.
I want to get the above questions answered, as the fact that this forum gave me a hit on google and did not say anything about it being a phishing attempt also contributing to me calling the number and giving them additional information (my street address). I am regretting it now.
