🚨 Upon examination, we have concluded that this is a scam because contains several scam hallmarks, plus the inclusive of a small and tricky glyph. A glyph is a graphic symbol scammers sometimes use in place of a letter or number.
🕵🏼 How to tell:
- The sender email is suspicious. The sender's domain (anything after the @) would reference Xfinity if this was a legitimate communication.
- The greeting isn't personalized. Legitimate companies will always use some personalized greetings using your email address/name. This particular scammer didn't even try to use "Dear Customer" or "To Premium User" to make the communication more personal.
- If you look closely, the "x" in Xfinity contains a strange hashmark at the midpoint. Catching small errors like this is a great way to spot a scam.
🔒 Ways to stay safe:
- Mark the email as Spam/Junk on your mailbox to prevent the same sender to send more scam emails to your address.
- Change your email password. While this may be a hassle, it's best practice to change the passwords of any accounts that *may* have been compromised.
- Never click on a link from a sender whose identity you cannot verify.
