Phishing email posing as Comcast request

I just got an email, supposedly from Comcast, telling me that I had several delayed messages (due to network congestion) and that to get them, I had to provide updated info.  Suspected that this was a phishing request and Comcast confirmed that this is the case.

@brglaser97Thank you for sharing. I recieved a similar one from Netflix stating that someone had used my account and purchased a movie. They included a link in the email to verify my account and credit card information so they could credit my account. I knew it was a scam right away because I don't use Netflix or have an account with them and it was a plain old phishing email, but wow it looked real.
