‘All of us can be harmed’: Investigation Reveals Hundreds of Canadians Have Phoney Degrees

11th September 2017

Read it.

A Marketplace investigation of the world’s largest diploma mill has discovered many Canadians could be putting their health and well-being in the hands of nurses, engineers, counsellors and other professionals with phoney credentials.

Fake diplomas are a billion-dollar industry, according to experts, and Marketplace obtained business records of its biggest player, a Pakistan-based IT firm called Axact. The team spent months combing through thousands of degree transactions, cross referencing personal information with customers’ social media profiles.

The investigation revealed more than 800 Canadians could have purchased a fake degree.

“Keep in mind this is just the one operation,” said Allen Ezell, a former FBI agent who investigated diploma mills for decades. “This does not give you totality of how many are being sold throughout Canada by all schools that are operating.”

    Where there’s a market, someone will step up to supply it.
    It’s an “economic law”.

  2. Tim of Angle Says:

    But you don’t believe in economic laws, so that’s all right.
