Fafsa.com / Misleading clients
I incorrectly chose their site (.com vs .gov) to submit a my son's FAFSA data. My mistake for not paying closer attention. However, I don't believe this business should be allowed to use the same Acronym as the actual government site. That is just wrong. That's another story.
Before realizing that I had made a mistake with this page, the site told me that the deadline for submitting my information was the next day. This is absolutely false. I'm confident they are using this misinformation to get me to call any pay them to help in resolving the built in problems they created for me on their site form. Again, very misleading and dishonest.
Again, I accept responsibiity for using the wrong site. Their site may be completely legal, but it should not be allowed to present false information to potential customers to secure their business. Their business is fee for something that is already free. I know this goes on in other situations, but allowing them to use the internet with the same basic URL address as the government's page is wrong.
My two cents.
