Many parents might be thrilled to hear their child has indicated that they want to improve their SAT scores. Officials are warning, however, consider the source.
This scam comes to us from the NBC affiliate in Cleveland, Ohio. Parents in a school district there are getting calls from someone pretending to be a guidance counselor at the high school. The caller says the child has checked a box on a form indicating they want more information on how to improve their test scores. The caller offers a money-back guarantee to buy a $109 CD, and asks for a credit card number and the child's name and address. The caller even gives details on returning the CD to a specific room at the high school if they decide they don't want it. Officials say, this is a scam.
