People are passing forged American Express Gift Cards. They are very good quality counterfeits. So far, the only way to tell if one is counterfeit is to look at the dollar amount. American Express Gift Cards have a maximum value of $100.00. If you see one over $100.00, it is a counterfeit.

So far, the most popular counterfeits that have been passed are showing a value of $500.00.
