Regarding web address "www.fafsa.com" the site mimics the legitimate site used by college students in the United States of America seeking to determine their eligibility for federal student financial aid (www.fafsa.ed.gov). I discovered the site inadvertently when my daughter asked for my credit card information after having entered ALL of our personal information on this site (socials, birth dates, income, etc.) - she entered the site following a google search for "fafsa." I attempted to back out of the site, page by page, in an effort to erase our personal information and was only partially successful. I can only imagine the multitude of folks that, unknowingly, have entered this website; it uses a similar URL address and the forms are very nearly identical to the legitimate site. Please be aware of this site. Also, if any person reading this knows of a better means to report this site, please feel free to use all or part of this message in doing so. My name is Randy; I live in Southern California and I can be contacted by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I don't know if the financial aid dept is aware of this. But, it would be great if someone would post alerts about this website:
Like MOST college students, I am in a hurry and everything is done at the last minute. Let me add, I am a struggling mother of two as well. So, I typed "fasfa" in the Google search field (http://www.google.com/). The first thing that popped up was: www.fasfa.com. After several unsuccessful attempts to login, I called them. I should have known something was up when they answered on a Saturday evening. After giving her my SS#, first & last name & e-mail address, she tells me about how they are a company that I can pay $99 to look over my fasfa. AGAIN -----> STRUGGLING COLLEGE STUDENT! The main problem GOOGLE has this joke of a site listed as the FIRST option when someone is looking for the fasfa.
Now this company has my e-mail address & my ss#.
Please share this with higher ups!
gives the impression it is a school financial aid site for higher education, but you don't realize your in a for profit form filer until its too late. why would a person pay $79.00 to fill out a form that is free. your trying to get financial aid, why would you want to pay. they need to change site address, make it clearer.
