Default Diploma spam.

I am sure by now we have all had umpteen thousand of them The latest ****busters.org newsletter has advice as to where to get info on a legitimate practicioner
Fake College Degrees Put You At Risk

You probably remember seeing the tiny classified ads in the back of magazines: Get a college degree now, based on your 'life experience' or other credentials!

Of course, this was just a scheme where you paid some 'degree mill' money to get a pretty printed certificate saying that you'd graduated from a non-existent institution, or an institution that just exists to give out diplomas to anyone
with a credit card.

Well, times have changed, but the **** hasn't -- it's just become more high-tech. Many sites on the Internet offer to give you a college diploma for cash. Some are so brazen that they're called Fake Degrees or Fake Diplomas. So you know you're not getting a high-quality education.

Why, then, are you at risk? Well, if you're hiring employees, you want to make sure their credentials are real and that they're up to the task.

And if you're going to see a lawyer, doctor, or other professional, it's vital that they be certified from a real educational institution. Otherwise, you could be in for trouble.

If you have any doubts as to whether someone's diploma is legitimate, check out the U.S. Network for Education Information's Web site at:
