We have been recently made aware that another company is contacting people by telephone, claiming to be from "EduMatch." We want to make you aware that this use of our name is neither connected to nor authorized by us. Here are some things to keep in mind, should you be contacted by EduMatch.
At this time, we have no plans to contact members via telephone.
If you receive e-mail correspondence on behalf of EduMatch, the address will end with @edumatch.org (or @edumatchfoundation).
Our official Twitter handles are @edu_match and @edumatchbooks.
Thanks, friends! Best wishes for a fun and fabulous school year.
We do lots of things...
..but calling you is not one.

The FCC is putting in measures to protect consumers such as the STIR/SHAKEN program that will soon be required of cell phone providers (see below).
They shared with us the following resources, that we would like to provide to the general public:
