NAAS Malibox Impersonation Scam

Dear
United States Postal Service
CrossRoads Station
Attn: Management
6210 N JONES BLVD
LAS VEGAS, NV 89130-4001

Dear sir:
Thank you for your hand-written letter. According to your letter, you want us to believe that someone is misusing our mailing address as their own. Ok. Ok. we believe you, for now. Is this really surprising?? Think about it. We have the most accurate, most biting NEWS reports on the Internet. Our latest presentation deals with scams and crimes related to Northwest Association of Accredited Schools. They have offices in Las Vegas, Nevada. It seems kind of curious you wrote your later at about the same time we have been publicly profiling this organization and its sub-groups.

Whomever sent you the letter(s) certainly did not use their own address. Duh??? I suggest, you take some DNA samples, and run the letters through the database, and match the times where that person(s) was.

Why would any person associated with NAAS be sending you anything?? Our investigation reveals that you are not qualified or eligible for any NAAS Award(s). It is obvious that we are rather too busy to be engaging in the sort of non-sense that you describe. Nonetheless, we appreciate your correspondence. It simply re-confirms that someone apparently thought enough about the effectiveness and reach of NAAS products and services as to impersonate our mailing address and sucker other people into believing that the letter came from an NAAS agent.

Since National Academy of American Scholars (NAAS) cannot be touched with respect to our superior service, products, and conformance with the federal and state laws, the only route left for desperate persons profiled in our media reports is to bribe, influence, trick, or convince the U.S. Postal Service, and one or more of its crooked employees, to engage in deceit, violation of the federal laws, and violations of U.S. Civil rights.

This is an example as to why we do not promote or solicit correspondence via the U.S. mail.

Your letter seems rather phony. Are you really a U.S. Postal Inspector?? Is so, do you have anything better to do with your time?? Can you provide to us the name of your U.S. employer, or the Postal Inspector you spoke with?

As you know, anyone can use your mailing address in Pahrump, NV and make the exact claims. Why is your claim more legitimate than ours, or anyone else??

Editors note: Has anyone been receiving similar letters claiming
to have received letters from a NAAS mailing address??

Prosecution of Trademark/Copyright Scofflaws

To resolve this matter, you must eeither remit the required fee(s) for an NAAS License, or cease and remove all uses of the NAAS mark from your website and literature.

Unless you are an official NAAS Licensee, you are not allowed to use the “NAAS” or “National Academy of American Scholars” mark as an instrument to solicit commerce or attention to your company or institution. For licensing information and prices, please refer to our NAAS Licensing Information Page. It is a matter of public record that the mark ‘NAAS’ is a registered U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and has achieved incontestable status. Unauthorized use of this mark without proper approval is illegal.

If you are currently a scofflaw or illegal user of the NAAS mark, and you want to continue to use the ‘NAAS’ mark, you have two choices:

1. Purchase or BUY an NAAS license at http://www.naas.org/; or,

2. REMOVE all references to the marks ‘NAAS’ from your website.

Rest assured, we will ensure that your illegal use of the mark is far more costlier and less pleasurable than your legal use with a valid NAAS license.

NAAS Editors Seek Background Checks

Commencing on January 1st, 2009, NAAS Editors will be implementing a new routine procedure in regards to NAAS-NEWS Media Reports.

All NAAS-NEWS reporters, and editors will automatically seek various back-ground checks on persons who become focal points of and/or listed in NAAS-NEWS Media Reports, as well as persons who are using NAAS intellectual property without proper authorization. {We do not vonduct background checks on applicants or subscribers. }

These various background checks may include, but are not limited to, investigations of past Child Molestation convictions, past child molestation arrests, past past child molestation inquiries, past arrests and/or convictions, past or pending lawsuits, bankruptcy, opinions of neighbors, co-workers, etc. For example, we have obtained background checks on the operators of criminal websites used by Josh Centor/Larry Centor. These websites unfairly portrayed NAAS in a false light, and the addresses of the operators are posted in a NAAS-NEW Media report.

We have also requested a background check on Doug Clay of Eastmont HS. This person is a webmaster of a school website that portrays NAAS in a false light.

Letters and post-cards may be sent to neighbors, ex-husbands, employers, and ex-wives for commentary as well.

As a general rule, if a person or politician is associated with any member of the Centor family of Bayside, New York, it is virtually guaranteed and/or very certain that the person is corrupt, and may become the focus of an investigation.

New Criticisms of the SAT/The College Board

Wake Forest University and Smith College have gotten a lot of attention since their announcements that they will no longer require prospective students to submit SAT and ACT scores with their applications.

The burst of publicity no doubt made their admissions offices happy. At a time when colleges are eager to elevate their brands - and are competing vigorously for students - dropping the SAT and ACT can be a helpful marketing tool.

The Wake Forest and Smith announcements are also part of a backlash against the use — and misuse — of the SAT. A growing number of schools have decided to drop the test, and there is an increasingly fractious debate underway about the validity of using the SAT to predict student performance in college.

The S.A.T., after all, is not a measure of creativity, drive or other factors that can affect student performance. Despite these caveats, the test is widely touted as a sacred index that tells all. Educational rating services evaluate colleges based partly on the SAT scores of their students. Real estate brokers market homes based on the average scores at local public schools. Bond-rating companies even consider SAT scores when judging a college’s creditworthiness.

That debate about the validity of the SAT has been raging for years. The level of intensity was kicked up when the College Board released new studies of the test last year, which were revamped — amid much hullabaloo — three years ago.

The Times’ Tamar Lewin wrote that the 3-hour and 45-minute test — with a new written component — “predicts college success no better than the old test, and not quite as well as a student’s high school grades.’’
