The problem is not @ (you don't need to escape it), it's that you haven't told curl to use FTP in the first place. Note that you're receiving a HTTP response from a HTTP server.

cURL takes URLs, and if it encounters a bare it adds http:// automatically. Use curl ... ftps:// (which enables --ftp-ssl automatically, by the way).
