Original release date: January 26, 2021
The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has released information on scammers attempting to impersonate the FTC. The scammers operate an FTC-spoofed website that claims to provide instant cash payments and tries to trick consumers into disclosing their financial information. The real FTC does not require such information and scammers can use this information to steal consumers’ money and identities.

CISA encourages consumers to review the FTC blog post and CISA’s Security Tips on Avoiding Social Engineering and Phishing Attacks and Preventing and Responding to Identity Theft.
