Scholarship Scams: Beware!
Not all scholarship services and scholarship providers are out to help students. Warning: Financial aid/scholarships should be a free process. No sponsor can guarantee that you will win an award! Scam artists will ask for a credit card or bank account information and then drain your account or run up charges on your credit card. If in doubt, ask a counselor!
