This morning, the FTC formally announced that it is closed due to the government shutdown.  Here's a quick recap:

1.   The FTC's website and social media properties won't be updated during the shutdown; 

2.  The National Do Not Call Registry will not be available; and

3.  Various other online services will not be available, including the Consumer Sentinel Network (for law enforcement) and the Complaint Assistant (for filing consumer complaints).
