For companies that follow what’s going on at the FTC, a letter with the agency seal signed by “FTC Director Jessica Rich” might attract attention. But there’s one letter that claims to be from the FTC that we suggest you ignore.
That’s because the sender says you’ve won a sweepstakes and Jessica Rich of the FTC will help you claim the cash – after you pay a $5,000 “Legal Registration Bond,” of course.
What’s truthful about those letters? There is a person at the FTC named Jessica Rich. As it happens, she heads up the FTC’s Bureau of Consumer Protection.
