On October 31st I received multiple messages the case against Axact CEO Shoaib Ahmed Shaikh was dismissed by a District and Session Judge in Pakistan (Court acquits Axact boss in fake degree case). The Axact chief was exposed in a Spring 2015 article by the New York Times that detailed the inner workings of a diploma scam which included the creation of over 300 fictitious educational institutions and accreditation agencies. The diploma mills generated for its owners hundred’s of millions of dollars by selling fake degrees to individuals worldwide and especially in the GCC.
Bogus universities have been a subject area I have been following for quite sometime in the US and in the MENA region. I contacted and assisted in early 2015 Al Fanar and The National about another bogus university in which both papers published stories. On May 26th, 2015 I wrote an article on my blog called Call for Action: Shut Down Diploma Mills, which focused on how many people in the GCC have a degree from an Axact bogus university posted on their LinkedIn profile. A number of publications re-printed my article or conducted follow-up stories. In addition many other papers have written on the subject including Gulf News and Emirates 24\7. I thought the diploma mill companies led by Axact had been exposed and after the raid the Pakistan justice system would convict these perpetrators, I was wrong.
I was contacted by a person who had been duped earlier into enroling of one of the bogus schools. This individual sent me a message on October 23rd, which said: ” “am not sure whether you remember me. I think that the education scammers are back. Had phone calls on different occasions. If you reply to this mail, can supply you with the numbers.”
On October 31st, I received from this person an email he/she received:
Paramount California University is one of the Axact bogus schools and I had thought the raids in Pakistan shut them down along with 300+ others sites. I went to the website to see if they and another Axact bogus school, Nixon University were still operating. Here is what I found:
What can we do about these companies who by their actions are hurting education throughout the GCC, doing harm to companies who hire these grads and hurting the reputation of legitimate universities worldwide who have quality online degrees? I recommend the federal agencies in the GCC to consider the following actions:
- Take a very aggressive stand in letting the public know these companies are still operating
- The appropriate government agencies in the GCC coordinate a plan of action to turn off and shut down such diploma mills
- Dismiss or not hire any person who shows on their Cv or public record they have a degree from an identified bogus school
- Block the Internet addresses of any identified bogus school
While the Axact scandal is not as critical as war/peace, and reducing poverty, the education of the nation’s citizens is vital for business and society. Governments spend anywhere from 15-25% of their GNP to provide legitimate education to its citizens. I had hoped in 2015 the Pakistan raid on Axact and the arrest of the CEO would put this group and others like them out of business. Unfortunately the alleged leader is now free and it appears the justice system failed in getting a conviction. It now up to other governments worldwide to take action.

Indeed, if you type the website of paramount california university http://www.pcu.edu , it will direct you to another university website which seems newly created called pacific cambria university so where is pcu website?
Looks like they have changed the name. If you google still shows in some places the old name. Still a bogus group & likely the same cast of characters.
How can they have a .edu domain
From my knowledge of domains they should not be issued a .edu but it is not unusual to see this occur. I would image if complaints were filed with domain authorities they get the edu pulled. However they could get another domain such as .com .net or another extension.
And how about the numbers they are calling from showing from usa?
I believe that was true in the past. Getting a US number is not a problem. Person can be in this region and using a US number or they are working in the US.
there is some website they are selling us and uk and canada number, from long time i saw a post for number. just google it you will get all info.
but why us and UK Governments take actions against them.
Its something called id spoofing where any number they wish will appear on your screen
Is Pacific Cambria university accredited
It is not accredited by any of the regional university groups. This means groups such as Western States, Southern Association, Middle States and such.
Who will recognise Pacific Cambria University?
I believe no credible approval body
American Board of Higher Education Commission accredits Pacific Cambria University. Is this acceped in California by the Department of Education?
I see nothing on PCU that shows a student can receive federal or state financial aid or loans. Further they are not accredited by any of the regional associations aka Western States. I do not find any evidence they are a legitimate school which a higher ed institution who is regionally accredited would accept their credits. Buyer Beware!
I have just been contacted by “National Valley University” and I believe the may fall under the fake category.
Anybody else had dealings with this so called institute?
Have not, but after checking the accreditation groups I would say its a bogus university and keep away from them
I also recently received an email from someone named David Grey from the admission office of National Valley University informing me regarding the scholarship program that they are offering. I’ve even received a lot of missed calls from them.
On the email, they are asking me to send the scanned documents for the university admission. So then, I decided to do a research first regarding this dealings. Just felt so relieved that I checked it out first before doing transactions with them.
I received a call today from David as well, offering scholarship programs. He insisted that to be eligible for the scholarship I need to send my scanned documents by 23rd of this month. On doing a background check on them, I discovered they are no where mentioned in ranking. Are there any other positive reviews about them that might prove me wrong?
So….what is the best way to know if the university is accredited or not!?
Is it only chea…or what?
For American schools your best best is to go to the CHEA SITE which has the websites of the six regional accreditation groups. https://kry224-site0001.maxesp.net/Directories/regional.asp
Thank you for sharing, the disclosures have not left blind spot. It was a great article on all the explanations required in comments. Nice blog.
The challenges are not a problem as long as it is justice at the end. I follow your articles fondly. I wish you continued success.
I am now student for Doctorate In Business Administration at PACIFIC CAMBRIA UNIVERSITY that mean i am lost? It’s a fake university? Ohhh my God…
We were finally able to get the PCU shut down, I’ve warned people on line about these fake universities for going on four years now. They took people for millions. You all must remember, “Something for Nothing” OR TRYING to BUY A DEGREE WILL LEAD TO NOTHING BUT TROUBLE..
Did you shut down Pacific Cambria University?
Dennis, I’m not sure if they are shut down. I was on the site & it still looks active. However do avoid them.
I want to pursue degree from national valley university. Is these university have proper accreditation. Is these university is a fake one?? Please guide me
I would be very very cautious. My quick check on who they says accredits them are not recognized organizations and could be bogus groups, which makes me suspect of NVU.
National Valley Is definitely a FAKE University
They offered me a scholarship discount of 86% and a Masters Degree in 25 days. NO one does that except fake people and they also wanted me to send them 500 dollars without any application or form or any sort of security.
Stay away from National Valley University
Something doesn’t smell right about this one, the site won’t allow me to scroll down and read, not a good sign. We can connect you with a recognized, MOE recognized school.
There are many schools with varying levels of education. We are entering into a difficult search for choosing and choosing the best among them. Thank you for your comments and comments on this subject. It was very useful.
Is anyone aware of a class action lawsuit against the Axact companies to try and recover any monies? I find it interesting with all of the “this is a scam” reports, the the pcu website is still up and running http://www.paramountcaliforniauniversity.com/
I believe There has been a US court that convicted a person concerning the scandal. However it has not stopped some of these sites to reappear. Here is the article on the one US court case. https://www.thenews.com.pk/print/197510-Fake-degrees-scandal-Axact-pleads-guilty-in-US-court
I have been contacted by National Valley University. May I know if this also a fake distance learning school?
I just checked up on them again and after checking the accreditation groups I would say they have no accreditation recognized by US government agencies. I do not see evidence this school’s degree would be recognized by other international governments as well. I would look for other options.
Hi, I am also getting contacted by National Valley University. They claim to be accredited by http://www.nationalvalleyuniversity.com/about/accreditation/ . Also the fees that they are asking looks very dodgy to me at the moment. I did read the above replies and think they are fake however wanted to double check. Cheers.
The statements written in the past about NVU are still accurate.
I just came across this site after I fell victim and was given a degree from National Valley University and told them to attest it with the UAE goverment they claim they are on the process and keep requesting for huge sum of money for the attestation and am yet to even receive any proof of what they claim they are doing.Pls am confused can I be guided.
I did an update on the Blog go to https://edualliancegroup.blog/2017/09/15/all-of-us-can-be-harmed-update-on-axact-and-diploma-mills/
Any update on your case Mr Olamide
Is Nationla Valley University a real uni or a fake?
There are big differences between fake, operating legally, accreditation, MOE, etc. I’ve been in the biz for over 30 years. Contact me if you want to know at what level a particular school is at. We were able to get PCU shut down after complaining to various agencies for over three years. I currently work with local and federal authorities.. firstname.lastname@example.org
Don’t believe this guy, proclaimed to be Dr Barnhart. He’s part of the PCU saga
Is Caralyn University fake ? I already paid the cost fees.
I looked at the groups Caralyn show as accreditors and none are government sanctioned. I find nothing that tells me they are a sanctioned school in the US or elsewhere. If you want a degree that an employer or federal government would readily recognize I would attend elsewhere.
Hey all, be wary of someone pretending to be from the United States Higher Education Commission (USHEC), legal dept or lawyer or legal affairs or someone pretending to be a attorney calling you with full details of your PCU degree, name, address, contacts, email etc probably because they are PCU guys having your info. They will tell you about US Govt legal action against PCU and that you need to obtain a No Objections cert and pay all kinds of crap fees. Watch out! They are scammers from the same PCU team
For your research purposes USHEC website http://www.ushec.education
what about American board of higher education commission i was dealing with Palm creek university and they told me they are accrediated by abhec.com is this departmet is fake or not , the university is associated by them . if any bidy can help me in this case
This is from Wikipedia on list of unrecognized higher education accreditation organizations https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_unrecognized_higher_education_accreditation_organizations Also note American board of higher education commission i was dealing with Palm creek university and they told me they are accrediated by abhec.com is this departmet is fake or not , the university is on this list I would be very careful
abhec.com is listed as unrecognized on the link that you send me this is some think disappointed, i was dealing with them to give me certificate reflected with my experience in sales more than 15 years and they told me they will give me the certificate whiten 1 month, so i dont know what can i do right now, please advise me what to do
what about American board of higher education commission i was dealing with Palm creek university and they told me they are accredited by abhec.com is this department is fake or not , the university is associated by them . if any body can help me in this case
Mohammed, I am sorry but I am not sure there is anything you can do. in terms of legitimate groups who will certify this degree. In the end it’s the employer or the government where you are located to decide on whether they will recognize the school.
thanks for replying
so if i join this university and get the certificate from them i can work in private sector because i don’t need it for ministries or governments, as they promises me they will stamp it from ministry of foreign and education consul before i paid full it will be cash on delivery
I am not saying that. I am not sure of the rules in your country such as Kuwait. I would wonder if the company you work for or would work for would accept the degree from the school you mentioned. They may well say it is not a valid institution since they have no accreditation that is normally recognized. I know some HR people in the business sector would look at a diploma from a non-accredited school and say we will not pay you based on that degree.
If you really want to know on this question of the degree from Palm Creek then ask your HR office. That would be an official and not just opinion.
so i was a victim for – Nixon university online-fake-degree- and i already took it years ago and relised it was fake and i stopped using it , now they are calling from local and us numbers telling me iam illegal now and if i dont pay fees to transfer credit hours to another campus there will be illegal action by me , its more like a threat actualy ,is this for real or is it just some spam calls or what , iam located in saudiarabia
These are ALL FAKE.. I’m with the FBI-InfraGard Team and have warned people against these types of fake universities for years. There are legal and recognized alternatives besides these. These are by far WORSE than having no degree at all!
Mohammed. Nixon is a bogus school busted about 3 years ago. Some of their people are still trying to scare people by threaten them in the USA and KSA and getting money by doing this. If you have not used that degree in KSA to get a job you are fine, they can’t really hurt you. Hope that helps. Dean
It’s fske don’t pay any money
They will claim they are Lawyers and you have committed an offence etc
They are crooks. I happened to me and I fuxxxk them
An update on bogus degrees. On July 22nd 2018, Higher Education Ministry of Kuwait reports 40 forged diplomas to Public Prosecution. In the meantime, a newspaper report published yesterday quoted a security sources who said that a number of forgers are expected to be arrested and sent to the public prosecution soon, adding that they would be legally obliged to return money that they have collected for selling forged degrees. For the article go to http://news.kuwaittimes.net/website/higher-education-ministry-reports-40-forged-diplomas-to-public-prosecution/
I fell prey to one of these universities, Palm Creek University. I did get the degree documents but then they called again to tell me that I need to get them attested (accredited) and that I need to pay a huge fee for that I told them that they cheated and that I wouldn’t send the money and not use their certificates. Then after 12 months I get a phone call saying that the university is fake and the president of the university is imprisoned and that the document I got would be used against me for a trial on having fake certificates. the caller also told me that to remove my name legally I would have to get NOCs from 3 US dept. and it would cost me USD 4,500. They asked me to make the payment immediately or face legal action. So, what do you think this means and what should I do?
Ignore that, it’s fake too. I received similar calls from pretend Govt legal Depart and the moment I told them I’ll go to press, they go cold feet
Other groups are at this as well CalBrooks university for one.
Yes, I have and am being scammed by them.
They are now calling stating that they are from the MOI, MoFA, Embassy in America, from the local newspaper, and that a USA Tax Rebate is ready to be issued but is always held up due to a new requirement.
These people need to be dealt with by the law & like a lot of them appear to be in / operating from the USA the federal government needs to take a lot more proactive action against them.
What about trevorfielduniversity.education they are also behind so many people and shows the way that they are available on usaccreditationcouncil.org/search/texas/
Can anyone confirm if they are fine or fake ?
also they are visible on number 17 at below website and they have 2 years program for bachelor if you higher education certificate, its kinda 300 USD per month fees but if you pay one time its total cost is 2000 USD.
Any confirmation will be much appreciated.

I have had a phone call from steve “from the INTERPOL”, about CALBrooks & processes that need to be done because there is a problem and he was going to call back. that was 3 hours ago.
If he calls back then I will pass the information on to a lawyer, the press & to a family friend who is a senior police officer, he should be able to find out if I am on any lists with groups like this.
USAC.org is also pushing to get money out of me to clear documentation from;
USDLA, ABHEC & World Educational Council.
Is this all part of AXACT scam company.
Ian, One thing I am sure of, is it’s a scam. Can’t be positive if it’s AXACT or not be very possible. Being involved in USDLA I can tell you they don’t work with groups concerning documentation.
Thank you for the quick reply, however, could you or anyone else advise me if the World Education Council (wec) is real as the address is
1759 Oceanside Blvd, STE C-208, Oceanside, CA 92054, USA.
I think that this is only a mailbox setup.
The USAC (usaccreditationcouncil.org) shows 2 addresses
Administration Unit; 115 Driftwood Road, San Jose, California.
Scholarship Unit: 4700 Brannon Avenue, Jacksonville, Florida.
How do you shut these down, legal, press, how?
Checking the address in Oceanside it isa location for a UPS office and their website does not show an of their officers so I believe it is likely a fake front or bogus. Also USAC is not a government recognized organization. Question of shutting them down. Some agencies try to monitor these groups but are difficult to close because they pop up under another name. Publicity is the best weapon so far. Your instincts tell you best when it might be a scam or at times extortion. Block their calls put them on spam lists but keep away from them.
I have just come across The United States Higher Education Commission (USHEC.EDUCATION), they have a banner running across the screen “For Fake University Investigation Contact 1 202 747 9969.
Could this be real?
No notice the domain extension. A commission govt or agency would never use it.
Sorry, I have Just checked there Accredited University List and they include CalCreekUniversity in it.
They also like Stock images.
If you have an image from these scam / questionable universities check them with tineye.com.
I do not think that a real university would use Stock Images on the web site.
They are scammers!!!!
They have called me several times and sent me several emails extorting money 6 K to stop investigation, they do not supply any identification they use fake names like Richard Gates and are writing very strange emails. It is a SCAM
Is Bay ford university accredited?
They are not accredited by any recognized organization nor by any government ministry such as Qatar or UAE or USA.
Axact was very notorious organization. I was prey of this gang. Fortunately, i get to know this very early and it saved me lots of money, though my one complete academic years wasted.
Just received a new request / threat from a group called GCEAB (web address gceab.org) , I am sure that this is just a new part of a bigger scam.
This is urgent and important for you to respond at your earliest, as to avoid becoming part of investigation of FBI-AD (Federal Bureau of Investigation Alert Database).
“Whenever in the records of subject individual a discrepancy of any nature is identified by our agent, we put that individual in GAD (Global Alert Database). This database is shared with embassies, missions, immigration bodies, international and global organizations, government ministries, law enforcement agencies, educational institutes, health institutes and large private and public concerns of different domains like insurance, banking, technology, automobile, real estate, construction, manufacturing, logistics, transportation and various others. It also becomes part of our Regional General Awareness Program (RGAP). GCEAB’s Regional General Awareness Program is a highly-rich media campaign which will run on social media, TV channels and newspapers of that individual’s region, creating awareness to avoid any misguidance about his/her credentials. This program further collaborates with local law enforcement agencies, local relevant government ministries, local educational institutes and local employers.
The affect caused is such that if that individual is undergoing any process such as admission, employment, immigration, credit verification, travel, investigation and health is halted immediately and the relevant institution takes the appropriate decision. There are cases in which your name was highlighted for criminal investigations .Considering the sensitivity of the matter and being a direct threat to our national security; your complete cooperation would be mandatory.
Failure to comply with this request would result in a federal subpoena being filed against you and a request for a red warrant will be issued from Interpol.

Thank you for the very quick reply and confirmation that it is a SCAM, why do they never give up. I do expect that they will make follow up calls via various numbers and claim to be from groups such as INTERPOL, FBI, various government groups ( MOI, MoFA etc..).
I will be looking out for these and recording the conversations informing them that the call is recorded and will be handed over to the real police etc.. for their actions.
Has anyone heard of “FAFT-GAFI.org”
some sort of financial task force based in France web address is FAFT-GAFT.ORG.
As they have sent me a letter via e-mail saying a refund from the IRS for Eduction is being sent to me, But I think it is all part of the above scams.
Also, they tried to get money from me via a court letter from the “Unite States 9th circuit court”. This was reported to the court with an attached copy of the letters and a voice file, I was informed that it was going to be handed over to the Marshals
I hope that my follow-up post to the above is permitted to be shown.

Just to update on the above about the FATF-GAFI.ORG, they are a real organization based in France and do have a warning that SCAMMERS are using their name to get money/information from people.

Do not get involved with them they are scammers and will extort money from you in a big way.
Contact the local department of higher education in the country that you are in and ask for their approved online universities.
Cal Brooks will not be shown.
Do not fall for this offer / discount is only for the next 48 hours or you must pay now / 48 hours.

California Brooks University is one of these scams. I paid my tuition fees and everything and they wanted me to pay more money. They use they same pictures and looks the same as the websites posted here.
What am I supposed to do now?
How can we help stop this from happening again?
The only way to stop them is to tell them NO.
They will keep contacting you to try and get money, but be brave and Do Not give them anything.
If you sent money via a credit card then request a new card without delay, if they ask why tell them that you fell for a scam.
They drove me to the point of wanting to end it all, please do not give them anything.
The law is not tight on who can call themselves a university, and they operate knowing this from other countries.
The best way forward is block their number and any others that call you on this, also tell them that you are reporting this to the police.
Let people know that the scammers are doing.
I have just had a WhatsApp call from Pakistan, and the voice on the other end was NATHAN JONES.
Axact are California Brooks University, this is now confirmed.
