Summary
  • "Do you know where your doctor, lawyer, or clergyman earned his or her degree? In 1986, a congressional committee report concluded that half a million Americans hold fake degrees. Since then, things have gotten much, much worse." "Fueled by the Internet, more than three hundred active degree mills sell thousands of worthless diplomas each week, including medical and law degrees. Their total sales exceed $500 million a year - and over $1 billion in aggregate - yet the damage that their "customers" do is immeasurable."
  • "Allen Ezell, who specialized in degree fraud during his time with the FBI, and John Bear, prolific author and expert witness on the subject in federal and state courts, reveal the shocking dimensions of this growing scam in this thoroughly researched expose. Because so few people check up on degrees, huge numbers of fake-degree holders work as therapists, nuclear safety engineers, military officers, teachers, and top business executives, including two former CFOs of Fortune 500 companies. The authors provide lengthy and detailed recommendations on what can be done as well as useful lists of fake schools." "This is an invaluable reference book for personnel departments in business and academia, as well as for the average consumer."--Jacket
