It's a phishing email, an attempt to steal login and account information.
Please edit your message to remove the phishing link, which is still active! (Click Options, Edit)

Microsoft Smart Screen alerted me to this when I clicked the link to see if it was still active. I did not contine to the site as I have no doubt it would be a fake sign in site. The unsafe address is the clue it is a fake site. Comcast does not have any addresses at .org
