A Pakistani Company Is Making Millions Selling Fake College Diplomas For Those Of You Who Bombed Your Finals

A Pakistani software company called Axact is making tens of millions of dollar selling fake diplomas and college degrees, and I’ll be paying for my real college degree until I’m senile and talking to myself on a bus stop bench.

According to the New York Times, The company designs fake websites for over 370 fake online  colleges with names like Columbiana, Barkley and Mount Lincoln. The company works tirelessly to advertise its services by making non-stop phone calls, uploading positive video testimonials, and State Department authentication certificates bearing the signature of Secretary of State John Kerry. This website looks pretty official to me.

A majority of Axact’s customers know they are buying a fake diploma. A nurse in Abu Dhabi reportedly paid Axact $60,000 for a medical degree she needed for a promotion. But the company does such an legitimate job at marketing itself as a real college, many who are seeking a real education are manipulated by Axact’s agents into enrolling in coursework that never materializes. Or, in some cases, agents will tell potential students that their life experiences are enough to earn them a college diploma.

Axact charges about anywhere from $350 for high school diplomas to over $4,000 for doctoral degrees.

Allen Ezell, a retired FBI agent, told The New York Times,

“Hands down, this is probably the largest operation we’ve ever seen. It’s a breathtaking scam.”

When The Times requested to interview the leadership of the company, it issued a letter that denied any wrongdoing completely and claimed The Times reported “half-cooked stories and conspiracy theories.”

Axact stands to make tens of millions of dollars this year.

Matt’s love of writing was born during a sixth grade assembly when it was announced that his essay titled “Why Drugs Are Bad” had taken first prize in D.A.R.E.’s grade-wide contest. The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
