Saturday evening Ragan contacted Comcast about the accounts being sold online and learned that Comcast had 'already obtained a copy of the list' and was checking it against their customer base. 'Of the 590,000 records being sold, only about 200,000 of them were active,' Comcast said. Still unknown is the source of the data being sold online, although signs point to it being recycled.
