Fake GED Test Scam

The American Council on Education says GED test scams are on the rise.

GED stands for General Education Development, and its a test that reflects high school curriculum standards nationwide. The American Council on Education says people are getting scammed into paying a lot of money to take what they thought were the official GED tests, only to find it, it was fake. The Council says the GED tests cannot be taken online or through the mail. The test can only be taken in person at an official GED testing center.

    Prize Intelligence Agency(PRIA);Allocated Disbursement Authority(ADA);Entry Exchange-Controller Office of Admitted Claims THEY ALL HAVE THE SAME ADDRESS P.O.BX.527800 Miami,FL.33152-7800 or 9962 and they are still a big SCAM. They played me for roughly 600.00 from April to June and seen all their official looking documents and logos and little at a time they gather your info. My local Cnty.Sherrif told us that the detectives wont investigate unless you have lost over $500,000.00.I also right at the peak of possibly winning 2Ml.plus, I then out of the blue recieved a CITI BANK check for $4700.00,2-days later another CITI ck. for $4700.00 claiming it was for the taxes since it was winnings from Canada to recieve my $250,000.00 win that supposably came from stores such as HOME DEPOT;WAL-MART;SAFEWAY;SEARS.They ask me to deposit and wait for it to clear and then someone would deliver me the wins.I SEE NOT ONLY FRAUD BUT FELONY CHARGES FOR USING U.S.MAIL.SHAME ON YOU UNCLE SAM! Do something

    I have recieved hundreds of letters, requesting payments ranging from Five To 300 dollars for info. to claim Sweeps-Prizes! Even Certified-Mail.From places as Divergent as NY,Ca,Fl,Tx, Vegas,Kansas! They Promised Prizes of 10-Thousand to 12- Million Dollars. I could have paid out upwards of $5,000, if I had done as I was advised to do by these Scams! My Question Is-Can the Gov't. stop these thieves,from trying to steal desperate peoples money? In times like these people under Pressure,will fall for Scams that lure them with promises of money.The scamers must be takeing some people or they wouldn't continue to operate ?
