Re: [Connectivity] MAC Address Scam?

It's not a matter of a duplicate MAC address.

The modem was either stolen and offered for sale or was being used by someone who stopped paying for their service, kept their rented modem instead of turning it in, disappeared beyond the reach of Comcast and then sold the modem or gave it away to someone who sold it.

If this is true I'm surprised Comcast hasn't shut off his service yet for lack of compliance.

They didnt have to shut it off as it was never activated. Clearly going to be a ebay craigslist type of modem.

If service was never activated then I'm surprised they didn't blacklist the account from being able to activate service for lack of compliance. :/ Glad they didn't though.
