Beware of American Express Emails With Attached Phishing Form

A phishing campaign is underway that pretends to be from American Express and states that there is a security issue with your credit card. It then prompts you to open an attached HTML phishing form that will send the inputted information back to the scammers.

BleepingComputer first heard about this phishing scam from myonlinesecurity.co.uk, but when researching this further we have seen numerous variants being sent since October 2018. All of these variants utilize the same theme of there being a security review of your credit card that found issues that require you to send your information through an attached form and create a new online account.

These emails are being sent out from mail domains that are based off of the "American Express" keyword such as AmExpress@amnex.com, AmericanExpress@ampress.com, and AmericanExpress@aemail.com. Some of the email Subject that we have seen include "Notice Concerning your CardMember Account", "Reminder - We've issued a security concern (Action Required)", and "REMINDER: A concern that requires your action."
