FTC response Does this sound like they might do something?

Love the new board.  Makes sense since so many of us are rebuilding.  I received this response today from the FTC via email.  I filed a complaint against Drive Financial about their inaccurate credit reporting.  Wondering if the experts here think that the FTC might actually be looking into my complaint?
 
thanks
 
I just received an email from the FTC on my complaint to Drive Financial.  This is what is said.  Is this just standard response or should I feel encouraged?  The attachment sent was about the FTC and the FCRA and that is provides consumers with the right to fix their credit etc.

This is their form letter. They take all complaints for each OC or CA  and check them all out & then go after them......unless the complaint is really bad like fraud or ID theft....you will not know when or if they fine them OR take them to court!

I love the FTC....One time we needed money so bad that I was stupid and got a payday loan. Well I did pay it back but they screwed up and thought I didn't. To make a very long story short...I had a guy call my mother in another state saying there was a warrant out for me for not paying it back and threatened her. Well I gave them my proof of payment not before I turned them into the FTC. Well they got shut down...and I learned a valuable lesson and will never get one of those payday loans again.
