I have a real good idea that my nieghbor is stealing cable. There was a worker outside his house at around midnight with a flashlight hooking up the cable. Now it is just laying on the ground outside, not a real comcast quality job. Contact me if you want the location of this violation.

I feel as if someis sealing my cable. Tech was out 36 hours ago said my line was dsconnect at the tap. He reconnected all work fine for about 5 hours. Back out again go look and my was disconnected again another fed into tap and did not have the red tags on it. Having to wait 3 days for service again. That is not right.

mirt, it is also possible that the tags on the drops are not tagged right or were switched, so if a tech comes out to disconnect a neighbor, they are disconnecting the wrong subscriber.
The Comcast Cares team has been notified and will contact the local people to get it straightened out.
Watch this post and your email for updates from the team ASAP.

It was confirmed that 3666 Glenda street Lot 3 does not have cable service and according to customer service that my cable show it is working I have pictures to document my line. Comcast is commming out in the morning but what am I going to do if this happens again wait another 5 days without service.

Why doesn't anyone want to move in and help on this issue. The guy is stealing cable no doubt. I ought to cancel my service and get my cable for free. Comcast is so big that they dont care. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you really want to do something.

Have I got a story to tell ALL of you. Comcast has been told many times and has been to my house (a condo) many times. They even said I need to be rewired but yet nothing seems to get done.
There is a couple that live under my unit. They used to use a splitter from the hub in the basement to split my cable then after three times yes three Comcast finally cut the wire so close to the ceiling they can no longer do that so what do they do? Are you all ready for this... They cut into the wall and cut into my wire. Comcast has been out here about three times and agree with me and even knocked on her door. I have put signs up in the lobby and called the Theift Line so many times it is actually a contact on my phone. STILL NOTHING. Is this NOT a crime? Comcast has said they would like to rewire me and have called their supervisor many times and said they need to get the wire guy out here etc yet NOTHING. I canot tell you how many cable guys have given me their number and never pick up the phone. Meanwhile I pay 200 a month and get half my sations (cause when they split I loose signal strength) When does someone help someone like me?

ST, don't bother calling Comcast about your situation. It's clear it hasn't worked for you.
Instead do this:
You can send an email to
Comcast corporate customer service (email@example.com).
For the quickest response, please include:
Your full name;
Phone number & an alternate number if possible; (best contact number/time to call)
A link to your post. (click edit in your post, choose Highlight. Copy, then paste the URL which will open directly to your post)
You will not hear from a team member. One of them will contact the right person in your area and that person will call you.
Please post back if you do not hear from someone by the middle of next week. It generally does not take long to get resolution when the we_can_help team gets involved.

I really don't care anymore, i've been a paying customer and have disconnected my services, i never want to do business with comcast again.
I've reported the residents in my house and the landlord for a while, they have a crackhead of a maintence man who breaks into the box and runs lines into my place, i've called three times.
according to my sources someone has out and out committed the worst type of fraud on my acocunt, i've scheduled appointments to have these indviduals who are stealing my cable and using direct tv boxes to get free cable on a line THAT i pay over 900.00 a year for none of these deadbeats work, they sit in that house complain all day.
a resident before me which launched the same complaint and moved out. the only way to get these freaks out of my pockets was to disconnect the service. apparently when i schedule appointments there is a lady calling ON MY ACCOUNT VERIFYING MY INFORMATION CANCELLING THE APPOINTMENTS. so i just shut it off. i'm going with netflix.
you should have this address flagged as fraudulent and no one should ever recieve services here again. apparently three residents have large past due balances with comcast and can't get their own.

Are you kidding me!!! Its been months since I reported this. I really don't think Comcast minds poeple stealing the service as long as enough people (like me) pay for the services they recieve.

Someone just moved into our neighborhood and has ran a cable wire to have cable TV from one of our boxes in the yard. His person just moved in Friday Why did they not have things connected prior to moving in? How to report it

Hmm - I posted to this thread a month or so ago about third party cable installers (claiming they worked for Comcast) hopping the fence in the back yard - not even a courtesy knock on the front door. My dogs almost ate them.
Now the post I put here is gone? What is happening to my posts? Someone from Comcast taking them out?

A couple guys hopped the fence into the back yard- no Comcast insignia - digging into our yard unannounced.
That has nothing to do with cable theft?

I believe my neighbor that just moved next door to me is stealing cable not really sure it made me think this because there is a really long black cord running from their house to the ground cable box that is outside. I pay 230$ for my service here and they should be paying too instead of mooching off of others how do i go about taking care of this.

The Comcast Administrator on this forum has been notified and will notify the local group.
Watch this post and your email in case they need more information.

I called Comcast to report an illegal hook up but it aappears that that is impossible. I finally gave up and hung up. I was doing it for revenge but I guess it's easier just to forgive the person.

We have reason to believe that 707 W. Sheridan Road, Chicago, IL is re-broadcasting Comcast Internet in violation of your terms and conditions, in essence stealing your Internet for its 100+ apartment units. As you state in your terms and conditions, you are not allowed to purchase a Comcast business class connection, then re-broadcast it wirelessly (wi-fi) to all the apartments. To ensure a fair playing field, we would appreciate that you enforce the theft of Internet in the same manner that you enforce the theft of cable.

The Holiday Inn Danbury has wired their common area televisions (bar, restaurant, and lobby) by diverting the Comcast service feeding the guest rooms. I am under the impression that one is supposed to pay an extra fee for these services.
The address is 80 Newtown Rd · Danbury , Connecticut

As Jay stated he contacted me about all your issues. To better streamline this process and for those still having issues with cable theft, please send me a private message and I will have the local area investigate all claims.

Anyone having claims of cable theft, please send me a Private Message with as much detail and account information.
