No one is exempt from falling victim to online impersonation, even the chairman of the Federal Trade Commission.
Nat Wood of the Consumer & Business Education division of the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) issued a warning today about spam email that appears to be coming from Maureen Ohlhausen, the acting chairman of the FTC.
It's actually a phishing email that askes for your bank account information on the pretense that you will receive money from a government settlement with Western Union.
If you receive this email, don't respond OR click any links. Simply forward it to the FTC at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Wood assures readers that the FTC does work to shut down scams, but it "will never ask for money, your Social Security number, or any banking information." Yes, there is a settlement with Western Union in the works, but if you are entitled to a refund, you will receive a check via traditional mail.
