Scam - "American Express Security Notification - Confirmation of Your Phone Number Update"

The email message below: "American Express Security Notification," is a phishing scam and was NOT sent by American Express. The fake email message was designed to trick the recipients into clicking on a link within it that will take them to a fake American Express website, which will ask them to submit a form requesting their credit card numbers, social security numbers, names, addresses and other sensitive information.

If the requested information is submitted, it will be sent to the scammers behind the scam, who will use it to gain access to their victims' online accounts, which they will use fraudulently, and steal their identities and money.
