The independent, trusted guide to online education for over 22 years! Scam


I have recently seen video testimonials on YouTube with people claiming you can instantly gain a fully accredited and verifiable degree from a small private university (the name of the institute was not mentioned) for a small fee.

The testimonials also stated that they have been employed after using the degree and they implied that their lives have turned around for the better because of the service. The testimonials all point to I would like to know whether this is a good venture or a scam.

Something in the back of my mind is saying that this is too good to be true, but after watching the testimonials, I am unsure. Please get back to me with a response.

Regards, Student2173
