Hello Ms. Stearns,

Thank you so much for your help on this request. I'm wondering: was no action taken on this complaint? Was it forwarded to another agency? I am interested in all materials related to this complaint, so if further action was taken, I would like documentation of that.

Thanks again! I hope you're having a wonderful afternoon!

I'm wondering if there were any more materials found in response to this request. I appreciate the previous letter you provided, but if any other action was taken regarding the complaint in question, I would like to have that documentation as well. For example, if this request was forwarded to another agency, I would like a copy of the accompanying communications. Similarly, if any further inquiry was made by the FTC, I would appreciate notice of that as well.

Thank you so much!
