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.
