Phishing Scam - "Confirm that You're the Owner of the Account"

Edit
Phishing Scam - "Confirm that You're the Owner of the Account"

The email message with the subject: "Confirm that you're the owner of the account," which claims the recipients' American Express accounts have been signed into from an IP address and for security reasons they need to confirm that they are the owner of the accounts, is a phishing scam sent by cybercriminals. Therefore, recipients of the fake email message are asked to delete it and not follow the instructions in it.

Please continue reading below.

American Express card holders are asked never to click on a link in an email message to access to their accounts. They should instead, go directly to American Express website and sign into their accounts, and if there is something wrong with their accounts, it will be displayed to them. Or, if they need to confirm their account information it can be done there. Going directly to American Express website instead of clicking on a link, is the best protection against phishing scams.
