Obtaining a fake degree online is a risky action that may jeopardize your reputation for life. Nevertheless, such fakes are in demand for people. When the internet started to flourish, almost anything could be done and today more and more people are doing their shopping, running their business and getting their education online. Like all huge market-places, fraud unfortunately is a part of the game on the internet market, and offering fake degrees online is just one of many examples of such fraud.
If you are not cautious you can easily be fooled into a fake degree online. Recently I was online looking at some academic programs and I actually found a site offering to sell you a fake degree online of your own choice! I could hardly believe what I saw, they were so driveling about the fact they could give you any degree you wanted, in as little as 7 days or even less that was as good as a real one.
While they made some disclaimers on the site, how they are not responsible for how these fake diplomas are used, don’t base your decision on such tiny promises. A fake degree cannot profit you in any way you put it. Because of the impetuous abuse of this market, companies are now taking measure to have your diploma you give them checked. It is done pretty easily; a phone call or an online check can confirm if your degree is worth anything and if it’s evident it isn’t, say farewell to your job.
You don’t gain any benefit with a fake degree online and most of all, you don’t reap what you sawed in the first place – respect, reputation and knowledge. Online universities have a constant growth; a recent American statistics showing a 33% annual growth. They earn money just like any online business or store that does not have to put up a physical place to conduct their classes, doing everything online.
How Can You Avoid Getting A Fake Degree Online?
There are several things you should look for, such as
- claims of getting a degree in a very short period of time – for example, getting a Masters degree in 30 days is definitely a fake
- huge fees with high promises. Some of these fraudulent places claim themselves being one of the best places in the market with the best tutors etc. and justification for their high fees.
- sample diplomas that looks over impressive and has a university similar name is a clear sign that you got involved in a fake degree online.
Last but not least a word of wisdom (I’m sharing my own experience); do your homework before you decide anything. Search, search and search. Never sign up with any institution before you have done some careful investigation. Do your research in several steps. First make a list of colleges or universities offering online courses you are interested in. Second, start evaluate them. Look for accreditation, read a few reviews (search on “university name reviews” without quotes of course). Do not throw your money out of the window. If you see a website offering something suspicious as a fake degree online, get rid of it, forget it and move along.
