Notice The Front of the Card

• Cards have a high-gloss finish. Does the Card have a partially dull surface, a bumpy surface or is it bent around the edges? This may indicate it has been altered.

• Black ink should not be smudged or messy on the raised Card Number and Cardmember name.

• Card Number and Cardmember name should be printed in the same American Express font.

• The letters "AMEX" and a phosphorescence in the Centurion® portrait should be visible when the Card is examined under an ultraviolet light. The Centurion portrait is printed with great detail similar to that on US currency.
