Government Is Investigating Fake Universities

From August 27, 1911


GOVERNMENT IS INVESTIGATING FAKE UNIVERSITIES: Degrees Given Practically for a Few Dollars — Institutions That Sound Big on Paper but Shrink on Investigation — The Oriental University’s Odd Curriculum. (PDF)

These fake universities, sometimes called diploma mills, or degree mills, are still around and are still a problem. I occasionally see people in the news who have been exposed for their fake diplomas, like this guy in Philadelphia who used a fake degree to commit fraud. There’s even a blog about diploma mills in the news.

  6. Nicholson University’s Degree program for “work experience” is fake. My uncle just received his “Degree” that he qualified for and it is just a series of printed certificates on glossy paper. The degree is not even signed in ink. Also, it didn’t have the State Department or embassy stamps as requested. After doing some research, I found out they aren’t accredited in the U.S.A. to issue anything….even their accreditations aren’t accredited. Scam. Scam. Scam. Scam..
