Belford University Scam

I got a degree thru these people years back and believed it was accredited. I am now being contacted by them to “legalize” my diploma. It was illegal? Anyways, they are claiming they are accredited through the US Dept of State and I need to get my diploma legalized through the Dept of State and it will be recognized as accredited by any university in us, canada or globally. The fee to have this done is reduced until the end of the month. Is this possible?

Hello Clovis,

The [url=]article about the lawsuit & ruling[/url] states:

“The ruling…reflected the approximate price of each diploma sold ($249 each), times the [i][b]30,500 U.S. students who purchased diplomas from Belford between 2003 and the time of the lawsuit[/b][/i].”

In the future, be sure to consult the [url=/diploma-mill-police/degree-mills-list]Diploma Mill Police’s list of accreditation warning[/url]s if you’re unsure about a school’s credibility.

Best of luck!
