This is a well-timed expose of the lucrative and downright dangerous world of fake degrees. Need a degree from Harvard, Yale, or Stanford maybe? No problem. Send us a cheque! Do you know where your doctor or lawyer earned their degree? Fuelled by the internet, degree mills are selling thousands of fake degrees daily in a business estimated to be worth a billion dollars a year. Allen Ezell, who specialized in degree fraud during his 35 years with the FBI, and John Bear, prolific author and expert witness, reveal the shocking dimensions of this growing scam in this thoroughly researched expose. They show how degree mills operate, how to spot a fake school, how to check up on anyone's degree, and what to do when a fake degree is uncovered. This is an invaluable reference book for personnel departments in business and academia alike.
