Management Department - Comcast Account Termination. Your ID: x

Spoof email links to a spoof webpage where victim is prompted to enter their details believing the site is genuine. Details are then forwarded to a local script and captured.

Bogus Web Content?
URL of web content


1. Email claims to be from Comcast asking you to confirm your account data by clicking on the link. You will be taken to a spoof login page where your details will be captured by the phishers.

2. Comcast never send users emails requesting details in this way.

3. URL of spoof website disguised as "To update your account click here" . This looks secure but is NOT!

4. Real URL looks like the real Comcast URL - be careful!

5. Website traced to Missouri City, USA.

6. The spoof website online at the time of the report, but was not working properly.

7. This scam contains a lot of hidden text (coloured white so you cannot see it against the background). This is a sure sign of a scam.
