I paid for the December SAT Subject tests via Nabil Bank’s online payment booth in Durbar Marg. It was a late registration. I received an email from College Board a few days back stating that the balance was due because the credit card was declined and if I don’t pay the amount immediately, my account will be frozen. Online payment is not an option and apparently I have to fax them the credit card details or send them a check/ money order. Nabil Bank refused to send their credit card details and I don’t have an international credit card.
What should I do?
It appears like a spam to me. There is no site as “collegeboard.com.” There is “collegeboard.org” and note that the link contains “http” instead of “https:” which is what collegeboard uses.
I checked the link http://www.collegeboard.com/prod_downloads/cc_payment_form.pdf and I do think it is a way to collect your credit card information to steal money.
Few things that you should look into:
- What is the email address you received the email from?
- Find collegeboard email from the actual website and confirm if that is really the case.
- Don’t fill this form and don’t worry. Rather email and explain everything to college board in the email.
