Just wanted to send this out to you my Comcast / Xfinity clients:
I have gotten a couple of reports of an email making the rounds telling my clients that they need to update their Comcast email from version 9 to version 12 or something like that.
It is totally fake! This isn’t AOL from 2001. Comcast does not publicize a version number of their email system.
Remember the things I always taught you about examining fake emails. Look at the sender. In this case — the sender was using a Gmail address. Would real Comcast do that? No way!
Secondly check out the link they want to send you to. Just point to it, don’t click it. In this case it was a mysterious foreign website — not a Comcast(dot)net or xfinity(dot)com or anything like that.
I don’t want you to make an expensive mistake.
