Scam Description

Xfinity (scammer) claimed that I could receive a 50% discount for two years if I purchased two Target gift cards each in amount of $480. Then I had called who I believed was Xfinity with the card info. The amounts on the two cards would prepay my Xfinity account for 8 months. Discovered this is a scam thru a YouTube investigator today. The two phone numbers given by scammer are: 877-220-9482 and 877-521-2238.
