"Who's Who" - or "I'm Nobody"

It was very surprising to receive in the mail an invitation to send biographical information to a new edition of Who's Who in America. I'm thinking this must surely be some scam (though I could not see where they wanted money sent) because my career is no where nearly prestigious enough to warrant being added to such a list. Has anyone else received such invitations?

"Who's Who" collects different "who's who" for different areas: high school, college, etc. You can be in the book for free - the money maker is that hopefully you'll buy the book for something like $80, which is really a waste. Being in there isn't worth anything. For example, the high school "who's who" from 1998 included two people from my high school: me, and a high school dropout. Not very indicative of anything. my mom got suckered into buying the useless book though.

This one says "Who's Who in America - 2008" so it looks like it's national. Why me?

I am in the "Who's Who" for American high school students for several things. My parents, of course, had to buy the big book with the thousands upon thousands of other people in it. Defintly a waste of money to buy the book in my opinion. The only good part about receiving the rewards would be to make my list of accomplishments appear bigger!
