sorry to say, anyone can set up an organisation and say they will name a star after you. It's a 'kinda' scam, and you're really just paying for a nice certificate.
anyone with some fancy paper and a good printer could start up their own company - "Kandi's hairdressing salon and astronomical star naming service" - and it would have as much weight as any of the other star naming services
There is no commonly agreed register(s) for these, and they are not recognised by any serious astronomical society.
The ones I am aware of, usually give a location for the star and some details about it (magnitude, distance, appearance, etc)
