Even though the Federal Communications Commission is closed, the scams are open.
Several stations have reported calls from someone at a toll free (855) number, claiming to be with the Centralized Receivables Service, on behalf of the FCC. Messages direct you to speak with Revenue Receivables Operations. These individuals then demand fee payments for the FCC.
However, please remember the FCC is currently closed due to the government shutdown. These are scam calls and you should not pay fee requests made in this form.
These individuals apparently have been reported, but please be aware of this operation.
