I know many times when I entered DMV to pull up the web page to renew my registration that there were many links that were not always the actual California DMV. Always pay attention to the URL and make sure you are actually at the site you intended. Most DMV will end in .gov

April 29, 2022

Just wanted to let you all know how much I appreciate your extraordinary informative emails.
I consider myself VERY VERY LUCKY TO RECEIVE YOUR EMAILS (as I’m not fb and people don’t know how I navigate life in general lol )
The FTC is part of the American government that ARE ACTUALLY protecting us. Thank you!!

Everything about this claimant and claim is ridiculous if you got the paper in the mail which all they're mentioning on here is the email you get anyways on the paper it says submit your claim by August 31st 2022 if you read and the paragraphs above us it says you had to file one by July 5th 22 completely crazy because the mail came after that it doesn't matter I don't know why I'm wasting anybody's time leaving a comment 99% of what's going on in the world right now is complete chaos and not worth anybody's time if you got duped by this like I I'm very sorry this is one of the more minor things my information has got leaked too or time wasted anyways have a good life
