If You have a Bogus Degree You are Playing with Fire

I would advise anyone who has a degree via the Axact bogus schools to get it off your Cv and Linkedin accounts. In my May 26, 2015 article  “Call for Action: Shut Down Fake Schools”  I presented information which show thousands of individuals from the GCC who publish on their LinkedIn accounts degrees from bogus schools. The article hit a nerve with well over 100,000 views.

In a story posted January 7, 2016 in the Pakistan Press Review “Bacha Khan University: VC, registrar charged with fake degrees from Axact” three senior officials were hired on the basis of a degree from Paramount California University, USA (a bogus school).  Charges are now being filed.

To the thousands who have these false degrees, eliminate them from your publications and Cv’s. You will one day be caught and if so you will be  fired from your job or possibly arrested.  It’s not worth the risk.

You are Playing With Fire!

A Degree of Illegitimacy

999 article 1 reduced with talk

Edu Alliance in January 2015 began working with media publications to make the public aware of bogus online universities. Many of these groups who are based throughout the world are using social media such as Facebook and Twitter to advertise their “degree programs” The ads are designed to deceive people who want to complete their education quickly.

Stories of these illegal practices have been written about by a leading UAE newspaper The National, Al Fanar, an English/Arabic higher education publication and reprinted in The Chronicle of Higher Education.

We are delighted and honored that in April, 999 published by the United Arab Emirates Ministry of Interior (Editor-in Chief Lt. Colonel Awadh Al Kindi) published a major story called A Degree of Illegitimacy written by Paige Aarhus. We have made this available on a PDF format (click on title of story). We encourage you to read and let us know your reactions and your thoughts on how to shut these groups down. We also ask your assistance by sharing this article on the various social media outlets.
