I haven't received any:

The Federal Trade Commission, which regularly goes after spammers for
violating the law, Monday warned that a spammer is sending out bogus e-
mail messages that purport to come from the FTC.

The FTC said that the fraudulent e-mail makes reference to an FTC
complaint supposedly filed against the message's recipient. The
message includes links and an attachment that download a virus.

"Simply opening the e-mail does not appear to cause harm," said the
FTC. "However, it is likely that anyone who has opened the e-mail's
attachment or clicked on the links has downloaded the virus on their
computer, and should run an anti-virus program. The virus appears to
install a 'key logger' that could potentially grab passwords and
account numbers."
