I found this report from the Better Business Bureau on companies that scam families seeking out scholarships to help pay for school. Feel free to forward this to any friends or relatives that may have a child looking for extra money for college and could be scammed.

Every year, BBB receives complaints from parents who paid money upfront to a company that promised to find scholarships and grants for their child but ultimately didn't deliver.

BBB recommends listening for the following red flags when receiving the sales pitch from a financial-aid finder:

"You cannot get this information anywhere else." Actually, scholarship information is widely available in books, from libraries and financial aid offices and on the Internet, if you are willing to search for it.

"We will do all the work." Only parents and students can really determine and provide the financial information needed to complete the forms.

"May I have your credit card or bank account number to hold this scholarship?" This is never a requirement for a legitimate scholarship offer.

"The scholarship will cost some money." Legitimate scholarship offers never require payment of any kind.

For more information on finding financial aid for school, visit www.fafsa.ed.gov.  BBB has advice for everyone on managing personal finances and avoiding scams at www.bbb.org/us/Consumer-Tips/

Again, feel free to forward this to any friends or relatives that may have a child looking for extra money for college and could be scammed.
