    I just received a letter too and googled USA Scholarship Services to see if it is legitimate and it brought me here. Glad I did, now I know to throw it away. Boy, there are scams for everything!

    I never got one of those letters, but inside the door of our FA office at school shows a letter with handwritten on it in marker.... "This is a SCAM!"

    I worked with the financial aid office and received a BCBS Allied Health scholarship. They are your best resource.

    I called the phone number on the letter, they said you are paying for a "list" of places where you can apply for scholarships, they don't actually give them out. Everyone, don't send a dime!!

    I also got the form, I was all excited until I saw the processing fee of $27 dollars. Knew it was a scam but decided I'd research it. Does anyone know where you can report these things? I am going to take it to my school and see what they say.

    Also does anyone know where to apply for legit nursing scholarships?

    I just got this letter in the mail today... they never give up, this thread began in 2004. AND, they raised their price to $29, guess their not getting enough 'applicants'. LOL

    Will be sent to the circular file!

    This is so funny..... I got one of those letters today myself and the processing fee has gone up again. They are asking me for $29, guaranteed that I qualify for at least $1000 or I get the money back. I am hearing alarms and whistles on this one myself. It wreaks with SCAM. I think I am going to report this to the NC State Attorney General's Office. This would also be considered mail fraud since it involves money.

    I got the same thing over a month ago and it's been sitting here. I just found this forum and glad I did. Anyone have any luck with a scholarship resource other than FAFSA?

    P.S. I'm having my Fundamentals meltdown this week! Luckily only a month left to go in this class and I'm hoping it gets better (as in a light at the end of the tunnel).
