Do not open and run the web form attached to this email.

I received the following email with an attachement named “form.html“. It pretends that it is from American Express however a review of the attached web form shows that it points back to http://www.76tbike.com/ipdata/online.americanexpress.com.php. Forget about the stuff on the end which tries to make this look like it came from American Express, the domain name showing is www.76tbike.com – definitely NOT American Express.
