Account Alert - Important Membership Notification - American Express Scam

The email message below: "Account Alert: IMPORTANT Membership Notification for your Card(s)," is a phishing scam, and was not sent by American Express. The spoofed email message contains a fake American Express form designed to trick the recipients into entering their American Express user names, passwords, PINs, credit card and personal information on it. Once the information is entered on the form and submitted, it will then be sent to the cyber-criminals who are behind this phishing scam.
