Scammers have sent thousands of emails that appear to be from the FTC, but are not. These emails to business people claim that complaints have been filed against their companies. If you get an unexpected email that claims to be from the FTC and asks you to click on a link or attachment for information about consumer complaints, delete it. Don’t open it. Don’t click on the links. If you do, it may install malware on your computer.
