    In a notification letter dated March 10, American Express warns cardholders that their account information might've been exposed after a third-party service provider suffered a data breach.

    "...Account information of some of our Card Members, including some of your account information, may have been involved. It is important to note that American Express owned or controlled systems were not compromised by this incident," the letter states.
