Wrong tool for the job. Go check out wget and it's man page. You're
probably looking for somehting along the lines of
$ wget -mirror ftp://user:email@example.com/your/path/here/
Optionally, you can add a -quiet flag and amp it off to the background.
Be sure you execute this in the directory you want the files to be in
before you start.
