Diploma Mills Just how important is education verification?  Unfortunately, in today’s world, it is essential.  Google “fake degree” and hundreds of sites promising diplomas and transcripts pop up.  Choose your school and your degree and you are ready to go!

In their 2012 publication “Degree Mills: The Billion Dollar Industry That Has Sold Over a Million Fake Diplomas,” Allen Ezell and John Bear estimated that fake degree sales easily exceeded the billion dollar mark in just a decade.

The degrees can be from high school all the way up to the top of higher education. How is this for a staggering statistic:

“The number of earned PhD degrees in the United States is 40,000 to 45,000 each year. The number of fake PhDs bought each year from diploma mills exceeds 50,000. In other words, more than half of all people claiming a new PhD have a fake degree.”
