A female member of National Academy of American Scholars called the sponsor of these so-called $10,000 Mom scholarships to inquire about the legitimacy of the so-called Mom scholarships offered. Cyndi inquired how to enter the Mom Scholarship contest, what are the requirements to win, and is the contest Mom Scholarship contest really legitimate. The person who answered the phone had a heavy accent, and claimed to be from India. American employees or officials were not immediately available. When pressed for details about the alleged $10,000 Mom Scholarships scholarship program, and whether personal information was being hawked to college recruiters, the representative became evasive.
Eligibility Requirements for Entering the $10,000 Moms Scholarship Contest by Mom Scholarships Sponsors
The eligibility requirements to enter the $10,000 Mom Scholarship are extremely simple. In fact, the eligibility requirements are so simple that the requirements more closely resemble a pure drawing, lottery, or game of chance than a traditional scholarship contest.
$10,000 Mom Scholarships are Really a Drawing or Lottery
When seeking a trademark registration from U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, National Academy of American Scholars was required to demonstrate that it sponsored and/or awarded legitimate scholarships, grants, and financial-aid. Since our scholarships require academic merit, we met one of several tests. ScholarshipPoints.Com, another lottery-style scholarship operator failed in a bid to secure a trademark because its so-called scholarships are not really scholarships per the legal definition.
The Federal Trade Commission must initiate a rule that prohibits lottery-style operators of drawings from deceptively labeling their contests as scholarships when in fact very little scholarship effort is being applied to win the award.
Summary about the $10,000 Moms Scholarships program.
The $10,000 Mom’s Scholarships appear to create revenue by receiving fees from colleges, schools, and even student loan companies in exchange for the right to contact contestants in the $10,000 Mom’s Scholarship program. One of our female members completed the form and she was immediately bombarded with telephone calls from online school operators. She had to change her telephone number.
We have no evidence that the $10,000 Mom’s Scholarships program is illegitimate or that it is scam. We note that the company displays Better Business Bureau logo. This is a red-flag for possible deceit. We emailed the company several times and requested information, but no one responded. Phone calls also ee not returned. Such conduct is consistent with the sort of businesses that diplay a seal with the Better Business Bureau. The Better Business Bureau seal is as worthless as used toilet paper. Such a seal is not an indication of the quality, realibility, or integrity of a business.
