    Important information that  you should be aware of:  

    The company is called C3workshop.com. The letters are being sent to students in grades 9 through 12 in PA.

    They state there is no money for the "meeting" but additional fees will be charged for little to no services. Note that the company is based also out of Las Vegas.

    The letter makes it appear like this company has done research already to help students find the right school for them and Financial Aid. We know this is not the case.

    We do not want our families to fall victim to something like this.
