The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission (PFBC) and Pennsylvania Game Commission are warning anglers and hunters to avoid online scams when purchasing a license. The warning follows several recent reports of customers paying for licenses through third-party websites not affiliated with either agency, and then never receiving a license. When you purchase your fishing license from the PFBC through the Outdoor Shop, a printable electronic version (.pdf) is issued immediately. A hunting license purchased online through the Outdoor Shop is confirmed at the time of sale through an official email from the Game Commission, and licenses are mailed within two weeks of purchase. Anyone who encounters a suspicious website should call the PFBC Fishing License Help Line at 877-707-4085 or the Game Commission’s license division at 717-787-2084. Victims of a license scam should notify the PA Attorney General.
