According to the Federal Trade Commission, perpetrators of financial aid fraud often use the following lines to sell their scholarship services; students should avoid any scholarship service or website that says the following:
- “This scholarship is guaranteed or refunded.”
- “You can’t get this information anywhere else.”
- “I just need your credit card or bank account number to hold this scholarship.”
- “We will do all the work.”
- “This scholarship will cost money.”
- “You have been selected by a “national foundation” to receive a scholarship” or “You are a finalist” in a competition in which you have never participated.
If you believe you have been the victim of stock market fraud, want to file a complaint, or want more information, call 1.877.FTC.HELP or visit FTC Scholarship Scams.
