    I was nominated several years ago for Who's Who in Nursing. It was completely legit with photo's, certificate with seal, printed bio, etc. When I received the email/call, I found it suspicious that I was being asked to pay such a considerable amount. I'm glad I waited and checked the web about the company. They should be ashamed.
