How do you tell a friend they might be getting scammed?
friends of mine recently posted a picture on facebook. it was a picture of their son in a book put out by the United States Acheivement Academy. basically, it seems like a re-vamp of the Who's Who books back from my high school days (the book seems to contain a pic and bio of all the people who pay to be in the book). i looked at their website and they seem legit, but something about this just screams scam (link)
to be fair, it does look like they do give some scholarships, but the amounts don't seem to be all that much (http://www.fcasd.edu/pages/Fox_Chapel_Area_SD/News/Student_Wins_US_Achievement_Ac)
the problem is, my friends are so proud of their son being in this book. i'm afraid they'll order multiple copies and spend even more money. so, do i tell them they are possibly being scammed? or just let it go?
or, if anyone had first hand knowledge, is this a reputable organization? i just hate seeing friends get ripped off.
