ALERT: Beware of Fake 50% Discount Calls from Scammers Posing as Comcast!

Recently, some Comcast users have been getting voice messages or emails claiming they qualify for a 50% discount.

The voice message typically says:

“Hello! This is Comcast Xfinity calling to let you know your current account is eligible for a 50% discount. To claim it, please call us at (833) 434-2577 between 8:00 AM and 5:00 PM Pacific Standard Time. Thanks, and have a great day!”

Beware—this is a scam!

Comcast Xfinity isn’t offering a genuine 50% discount, and they never give such large discounts.

This scam isn’t new; it happened about 8-10 months ago, and now scammers are targeting new customers with the same voicemail again.


Here are some tips to help you spot and avoid these scams:

  1. Be careful with unexpected calls or messages offering big discounts or freebies. Legit companies usually don’t make unsolicited calls for promotions.
  2. If someone asks for payment in gift cards over the phone, hang up. Contact your service provider in person or using a familiar phone number to verify.
  3. If an offer sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Scammers often target customers of big companies like Comcast to trick them.
