People Are Finding Unsolicited Face Masks In Their Mailboxes

Face masks from China are showing up in people’s mailboxes….masks that they didn’t order or ask for.

This is part of a scam called brushing, and the Federal Trade Commission is on to it. Here’s how it works: sellers find a way to get your address, even your Amazon profile, and sent you lightweight stuff, even cheap jewelry. Then they use your name to post a fake, positive review of the item to boost sales.

The good news it doesn’t cost you money, but the FTC suggests that you change all of your e-commerce passwords to be on the safe side.
