There's a person claiming to be from Comcast who keeps calling me trying to get me to confirm my account information, and I legitimately cannot tell if it's a scammer who found a database dump, or the real Comcast being incompetent.

(I have not lived in a place where Comcast is even a thing for several years)

@emily have you done the "I can call the number on the website later – what department do I need to ask for?" thing yet? that's my best move lol

You are dealing with a scammer, and you should block his number.

Comcast will never ask you for your account number, only scammers do.

@alligatorchamp (I get a *lot* of scam calls, far too many to block all their numbers)
