You may be one of thousands of small business owners to get an e-mail that appears to be from the Federal Trade Commission. The subject line says: "URGENT: Pending Consumer Complaint."
It's not a legitimate complaint -- it's a phishing scam, the FTC warns on its Web site. The e-mail is designed to steal information such as your social security number or credit card information.
Clicking on the links in the e-mail also may install a virus on your computer.
With all the regulations you have to worry about in the finance and insurance office, it might be tempting to open an e-mail that looks like it's from the FTC.
But the FTC advises to just delete it.
