American Express cardholders are asked never to click on a link in an email message to access to their accounts. They should instead, go directly to the American Express website (www.americanexpress.com) and sign into their accounts from there. If there is something wrong or there is something that they need to with their accounts or cards, they will be notified after signing in.
