Honor Society AKA AKA & Looks like a legitimate website Los Angeles California

Website looks legitimate and the company even has a FAQ section on the commonly asked question on whether they are a legitimate company (see below). If you make the mistake of paying them $50.00 you will see that there are no networking tools & no "GradSpring" job boards. The link on their FAQ only verfies that they are a secure website so you can "trust" that they protect your credit card info on theirwebsite as they fraudulently charge you. There are no "college scholarships", "career services" or "member benefits".

I have never fallen for a emailed phishing campaign until I recieved an email from this company who obtained my name & name of university and told me I was nominated for membership in their "Honor Society". Since my GPA was high enough to be at a honors level I believed this was a real company after looking at the website eventhough I was cautious. Once I paid and filled out my profile info I realized the website does not change after logging in. All the content you can see before you pay that talks about the society benefits is exactly the same so you will pay for nothing if you give them your credit card. The website will show you that you are logged in after paying and this is the only difference you will see after paying. Content remains the same. don't make the mistake of getting ripped off and taken.

Want to be sure they are a scam before spending $50?

Send them an email and you will see that you will never recieve a response from them at :E-mail:

They will however confirm that they have recieved your email and will provide an automatic ticket number assigned to your email.
