Thank you. 

Cpt. Schauland is posting a scam in the paper in reference to a fake company portraying themselves as Comcast.  The victim gets a flyer and an un-activated card in the mail with instructions to activate the card and send them the numbers so they can cover the introductory services for 6 months.  The flyer guarantees the victim will have the next year and one-half of cable for $80.00 a month.

The victim who called did not activate the card, but wanted the services.  She was instructed to buy an American Express Serve card for the $480.00, which she did.  When she got her next cable bill, she called Comcast and discovered the whole thing was a scam and she is out $480.00.

Thanks for sharing!
