I'm a financial aid officer at a small, Northeastern technical college that serves a primarily older, low-income population.


Since a significant portion of our students aren't that computer literate, they don't realize they're getting cheated by bogus URL's, such as,, etc, which ask for credit card information, and charge upwards of $80, for the FREE Application for Federal Student Aid [FAFSA].


Why hasn't the FAFSA acronym been copyrighted yet?


These websites are ripping college students off in the amount of tens of thousands of dollars each year!
