Phishing Scam - "American Express Card Account Security Upgrade"

The email message with the subject: "American Express Card Account Security Upgrade," which claims the recipients' American Express accounts have been suspended and need to be restored, 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.

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 (www.americanexpress.com) and sign into their accounts from there, and if there is something wrong with their accounts, it will be displayed to them.
