American Express has notified its customers of a data breach at a third party provider. The company has warned its card members that their account information has been compromised by a data breach.

In a notification letter, the card firm said it has become aware that a third party service provider engaged by several merchants had experienced unauthorized access to its system. According to the letter, the card holders can expect their account number, name and other details to have been compromised.

American Express said that it is “vigilantly monitoring” the accounts for fraudulent activity and asked customers to do the same and report any suspicious transaction. The letter said that customers could receive more than one letter about the incident if more than one account was affected.

"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 and we are providing this notice to you as a precautionary measure," said the letter.
