Phishing is a method used by Internet scammers who imitate real companies in email messages to entice people to share user names, passwords, account information or credit card numbers.
Internet scammers use sophisticated lures as they "fish" for users' private information. The most common ploy is to copy the look and feel of a major web page and use that design to set up a nearly identical page that appears to be part of the company's site.
Be suspicious of any email or phone call that asks for your personal account information, such as usernames, passwords and account numbers.
Be aware that Comcast will never ask you for password information over the phone or email.
Comcast will never ask for billing or payment information through email.
Always make sure you use a secure server when submitting credit card information. To make sure you are using a secure server, check the beginning of the web address in your browser's address bar it should be https:// rather than just http://.
Microsoft has created a security update for Internet Explorer that will help you avoid phishing scams. It removes a vulnerability that could allow an attacker to misrepresent the location of a web page in the address bar of an Internet Explorer window. We strongly urge you to download this patch if your computer has Internet Explorer installed (even if you don't use Internet Explorer as your primary web browser).
