-Advanced Fees – There is no reason to pay upfront for a scholarship search, since there are number of free resources online.
-Financial Information – Bank account or credit card information is not required by legitimate scholarship grantors.
-High Pressure Sales Tactics – No matter how much the promoter claims you can receive, don’t give in to pressure to sign up for any product or service immediately. Ask for written information and then research the company and the product before committing to any contract or payment.
-Dodging the Question – If you receive vague or evasive answers to your questions, this is a big red flag. Walk away.
