The FCC Has No Office of Compliance Administration

January 13, 2020

Note: The following is a post from the blog of Enterprise Wireless Alliance President Mark E. Crosby.

The letter certainly wants to look official, but as we have alerted you in the past, “Federal License Management” is not affiliated in any manner with the Federal Government, and most certainly, has nothing to do with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). So, if you or your customers recently received an “ADMINISTRATIVE UPDATE – MODIFICATION NOTICE” from the “Office of Compliance Administration” referencing a call sign and listing potential amendments, you should seek satisfaction by throwing the letter away. The FCC does not issue such nonsensical communications and does not have an Office of Compliance Administration. If you want to file an official complaint, please read below. And one more thing. Although Federal License Management is not affiliated in any way with that other entity calling itself Federal Licensing, Inc. or JV depending on the day, they both are a plague on unsuspecting licensees.

To file a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) regarding unfair or deceptive business practices, call 1-877-FTC-HELP or email Complaints assist the FTC in detecting patterns of fraud and abuse
