I wanted to let you all know about a scam circulating.
I’m the mother of a high school senior and a former high school guidance counselor of 20 years. I received two packets in the mail recently from Student Financial Aid Services, Inc. asking me to call or go to fafsa.com to file for college financial aid. It’s a really good ad, and most people would not realize that it’s a scam.
There is no mention of fees at all, but a quick Google search will tell you that they charge $80 to $200 to file your FAFSA form. The FAFSA form is the FREE federal government form to apply for college financial aid. It’s free to file on the government website You can search thousands of scholarship for free at fafsa.ed.gov. Also, don’t ever pay a fee to apply for a scholarship. Legitimate businesses giving out scholarships never charge a processing fee.
