    I got one of these on April 2. I don't have an AmEx account. What bullsh**t!

    I just got this email on 03/29. I thought it was legit at first but then I went to my account online and couldn't find any info referencing the email. That's when I realized it was sketchy and a scam.

    The attached form should be a big red flag, it asks for all account information before submitting, and a competent browser will warn you that it's submitting the information to a third party.

    I reviewed the form and it's passing through the hosting service "unified layer". I've notified their abuse account.

    I am in Southern California. I just got this spoof email and called American Express to notify them. I forwarded all the info to them. All of the links, on the attachment, go nowhere. They are just for show on the document and are not connected to anything. Don't be fooled.
