Exclamation Heads-up on american express scam

Hi All,

My wife received an email that was represented as being from the American Express Credit Card.......

The email is a scam with a link at the bottom of the email to contact American Express and the email address is not an American Express address.....

The "TO" line of the email address contains numerous yahoo email accounts that this email was sent to........

DO NOT use the link to contact American Express....

Look at the back of your American Express Credit Card for the correct phone number and call them to report this problem...

We received 2 of these emails today....

I hope that nobody gets screwed by these scammers

So many scammers...

I run my own mail server and because I receive a lot of "off the wall" mail from certain folks, I really cant tighten up the spam filter that much more.

So I get a lot of these.. Today, there were a bunch purporting to acknowledge United Airlines tickes, a bogus Verizon bill, and a variety of "paypal charges" for large sums, that were totally bogus.

In a lot of these, as you are reading the emails, if you put your mouse over a link (don't click them, just move your mouse over), you will see the destination for that link is NOT where it should be.

As the Sargent on Hill Street Blues used to say, Be Careful Out There!

If you are a Vet and want good honest service from a company known for it's integrity and customer service. Apply for membership in USAA, I have used them since 1977 and wouldn't bank or use any other investment broker. I have bought every new car I have ever owned through their buyer service. Their insurance can not be beat! Their point system on their American Express is great. I don't have it, but I think they have a 6% Visa or MasterCard. They have home loans, they are truly a one-stop shopping for banking.
