The Food and Drug Administration is warning consumers of a new scam that involves fake government warning letters being sent to people who buy medications online or on the phone.
The FDA reports the letters are part of a scam to try to get your personal information. The letters claim to be from the FDA or the FTC (Federal Trade Commission). The letters claim the government is investigating drugs that the consumers purchased online. However, both government agencies say they never send letters like that to individuals - only to companies.
