Alright… so I got home this afternoon and looked through the mail. Junk, Bill, Junk and more Junk, Two letters from the art magzine place, and… a scholarship?! Sure, National Honor’s Society is something but… this is the second one this year! O_O But… I’m afraid I don’t know this one… on the front it says something along the lines of “Who’s Who Among American Students.”
So, mind telling me who these people are? Are they stalkers? >> <.< Are they aliens from another planet? pokes letter …
It’s a friggin’ ripoff…they’ve been sending junkmail before the advent of modern desktop computers. Now, had it been an invite to a local reputable honors society that don’t make you pay to get in, that would be different.
Who’s Who is a bit of a scam, but the scholarship money if you win it is real. National Honor Roll and the like just want to sell your information that you send back. Your teachers nominate you for Who’s who and there’s no harm in filling out the application thing, just don’t bother buying the book they’re trying to sell you. It is free to fill out.
I got several of those when I was 10, and [strike]they got me to Georgetown, suckers[/strike] I wasn’t sure whether to take them as a compliment to my intelligence or not. Yeah, definitely a scam. Did they ask you for a money deposit or something?
