From the Document: "The Federal Trade Commission [FTC] is a bipartisan independent agency that protects consumers and promotes competition. The COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic and the attendant economic fallout touch on the full breadth of the Commission's mandate. The FTC has applied its resources to investigate and respond to issues arising from COVID-19 over the last year, and, with the benefit of recent support from Congress, will redouble those efforts going forward. The Commission began taking action related to COVID-19 even before the March 13 declaration of a national emergency, warning consumers in February 2020 about COVID-19-related scams."
