Scam Of The Week: Fake Amex ID Verification

OK, here is another one to warn everyone about, especially the employees that have a 'corporate' AMEX card. This is a crafty social engineering scam email that claims to be from American Express and asks if the recipient recently tried to verify his or her account ID or change the account password.

Obviously this was not done, and might get the person to worry and click on a link believing someone else accessed their account. But clicking on the malicious link leads to a site that has malware and tries to infect the workstation. Think before you click! This is how the scam email looks: http://blog.knowbe4.com/fake-amex-id-verification/
