Talked to Comcast security and they said it is the phone number for Comcast business but not them that is making the call. They claim their number is being used by a scam caller.
I got the call too. May 17 2019 I called Comcast and was told that no one from Comcast called me. There was no information in their computer showing that. They will report it.
Just got a call from man with Indian/Pakistan/Bangladesh accent saying he was from Comcast to solve my internet problem. Wanted me to verify my IP address and turn off/on my modem. I ask him what problem he was trying to solve, since I was using my internet and it is working fine. He claimed that my service would be turned off soon if I didn't let him solve "the problem". I told him to get lost.
Yep same Indian heavy accent guy called, gave two names of the unauthorized users. They wanted me to go look at comcast device. Ya, that's not happening. Yes it was Comcast caller ID but NOT comcast calling.
Mt caller ID show Comcast Business however when I answered, there was no one on the line. I don't need services i am a Comcast Home customer.

You can no longer trust your caller ID because scammers can manipulate it to show whatever name and number they want. My caller ID said it was Comcast and it showed this number which is a Comcast number, but it wasn't Comcast calling me. It was a scammer who wanted access to my computer.

This number keeps ringing my phone and I don't answer bc I know it's not really Comcast Business, it's a mask. It sometimes comes in as "Anonymous". After 3 times today I blocked it. If Comcast Business wants to talk to me, they can find another way.
I answered and said police department, fraud division. He hung right up. Lol
Indian man stated I have unauthorized users on my account and he needs to look at my computer. I knew it was a scam so I played along, stated I still have dial up in my area since we are so far out in the country. I have the old dial tone on my phone so I played it all the while he was waiting. Kept him on the phone for 10 minutes while I was doing other things in the house. Told him I cannot find a connection, let me try on my tablet. I did the same thing he waited again and I went on my merry way doing chores. After 6 minutes I told him I cannot get the connection because I do not have dial up but at least I wasted 16 minutes of his time and being unable to scam other innocent people. Needless to say the language he used to cuss me out was not pretty at all :)
This is not Comcast. Indian man saying I had unauthorized users on my internet account. He wanted me to go to my computer to access “something.” Obviously I told him I wasn’t going to do that. He hung up. I called the real Comcast. The said no unauthorized users are using my account so this is a scam.
This is NOT COMCAST! I was just screamed at by an Indian man and called a Whore because I slept with him last night and did not call him back. Even if you are a comcast customer - BLOCK THIS NUMBER!!!!
Call me and no one answers!! So freaking ANNOYING!! STOP CALLING !!!

Comcast?? What the heck. I don't even have them for a service provider. Am on the Do Not Call List--it works great doesn't it.
Been calling everyday for a week at the same time. Same guy.
Comcast Business Internet warning of a planned outage of service
When they call, all I hear is that 'You put the lime in the coconut' song. Now it's stuck in my head!
"Your area scheduled for February 6, 2012. On account ending with eight, 210. This work is in support of our ongoing commitment to network performance and may cause a brief service interruption over night during the hours of 12:00AM and 5:00AM. This maintenance is to ensure you are provided with the highest level of service reliability and speed. If you have any questions, please contact us at 1-800-391-3000. Thanks for choosing Comcast"
Called 3 times in 1.5 hours, left no voice mail.
Frequent caller today; not going to answer
I find it funny how many of you over react to a business trying to let you know of an outage tho.. do you people come out of your house at all?
They use this number to let you know there will be maintenance in your area or an outage.
this is comcast business services calling
If this is truly Comcast, it's an unsolicited Sales call and is against the rules. GRRRR.
Do not have comcast. This is unsolicited and violates the do not call regulations

Called office, did NOT identify herself. Wanted to speak to the "person that handles the phone service" (was a real person but rather "robotic" sounding, def reading from a script). Kept talking but I raised my voice and talked right over her "That would be me, we are not interested, do not call here again, remove our number from your call list" and hung up on her. Frankly, ANY place that does not put their name on Caller ID gets nothing from me.
I HAVE RECEIVED CALLS DAILY AT MY OFFICE, ALWAYS SHOWS THIS PHONE # AND HANGS UP WHEN I ANSWER. ABOUT A MONTH AGO I QUIT ANSWERING THE PHONE WHEN I SAW WHO IT WAS. I DID CONTACT COMCAST TODAY AND THREATENED TO HAVE MY HOME SERVICE DISCONNECTED FROM COMCAST IF THE CALLS DID NOT STOP IMMEDIATELY. LINDA AT COMCAST CUSTOMER SERVICE SAID THAT SHE WOULD ESCULATE THE STOP ON THE AUTO DIALER. ONE MORE CALL AND I WILL DISCONTINUE SERVICE WITH COMCAST AND ENCOURAGE EVERY RESIDENT IN THE 73 UNIT APT COMMUNITY I MANAGER TO DO THE SAME. TIRED OF IT
These guys are total pests. Ever wonder how much cheaper your Comcast bill could be if they didn't spend all that money calling people and sending fancy color brochures in the mail 3 or 4 times a week? That has to cost a fortune, and if you use Comcast, you're paying for it.
Calls back to this 800 number show it is Comcast for business.
I called the number.
They said they are a call center.
He said he would call the "marketing people" to get my number taken off their call list.
I asked for the number. It took him a while to find it. (Which would tell me he was lying)
I called the number (local). I told her I have been getting calls & didn't enjoy them. I'm on the National "Do Not Call" list.
She told me she would take it off. I asked for her name & extension...
Called and hung up. My number's been on the Do Not Call list for months now.
I am getting the same issue. It's been weeks and weeks now that I get these calls during business days - always around 3pm EST.
I am also on the do not call list and if anyone finds out whom this is, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The calls started about a week ago and the call comes into my cell phone every single day between 3 and 4pm. My number has been registered on the DO NOT CALL list for over 6 months. If it is Comcast, they used to call my home phone 3-4 times per week...did it for months. I never picked-up, and they never stopped calling. I got rid of my land line a few months ago and now they're hitting my cell.
Kept on calling me 5+ times in one day...
It is Comcast. I simply called the free number. Now, I'm going to just keep calling to bug them as much as they bug me.
It is Comcast. I called back and had my numbers removed even though the numbers are on the no-call list.
I get calls from this number and no-one is there when I answer.
Calls my business line every day
