Warning Scam For Businesses: Do Not Be Duped by Fake FTC Complaints

We understand that a scam is making the rounds that may make it into email boxes of corporate lawyers and their business clients. It involves a cover email styled to appear like it is coming from the FTC forwarding customer complaints and asking the business to respond. It includes a link that purports to be to the complaint, but,when clicked on, it will download malware to the user's computer. The FTC's blog for business includes more details here. This is not a new and novel scam, but one that is recurring and can dupe even sophisticated business people. For those of you who have been on the receiving end of an FTC complaint, CID or request for information, you know this is not how the agency operates. Such requests will come by mail or formal service. Business folks may not be so informed, particularly as this means of communication is not unlike what a company might get from a local BBB or other business organization. As this is not something your IT departments want to labor with over the holiday weekend, we wanted to spread the word to our readers. – Amy Mudge
