1.0 out of 5 stars Have you done your homework?, 24 Jan. 2011
This review is from: Gift Republic Name a Star Gift Box (Kitchen & Home)
What a sham. Please dont waste your money on this NOVELTY gift. I believe this product on Amazon deliberately deceives customers into believing their star naming is official rather than a novelty - what a con. By claiming that it's copyrighted or registered with the British Library or similar, when in fact this is meaningless and certainly doesn't make it officially recognised.

A novelty disclaimer should be on this Amazon site and other related 'Name a...' novelty gifts.

Yes, it's a scam. Not official. You might as well make up your own kit and save the money.

It is unfortunate that Items like this appear on Amazon. It is a shame as it undoubtedly will lead to people being less willing to take part in more laudable adoption schemes of which there are many. Gift republic should be more transparent about this offering and at the very least make it crystal clear that the name you select will not be recognised by any authority, I recommend you only adopt or name through official bodies or well known and respected agencies. Then at least you will know your money is being used to good purpose and not just wasted on a meaningless piece of paper.

There is no way you can OFFICIALLY name a star after someone! so novelty is the only way! how can it be a scam when there is no other possible way to name a star?! a simple Google search would tell you the same.
