The important thing to remember is this: The FTC never tells people they're under investigation via email. If you receive one of these messages, don't click any links or respond in any way. Instead, forward the message to email@example.com, which is the FTC's email address for spam; your contribution will help the FTC prosecute fraudsters. After you've forwarded the email, be sure to delete it.
In general, don't click links in, or reply to, any messages you're not expecting. If you're not sure about the legitimacy of an email, contact the company, agency, or organization separately to verify before responding.
