SCAM ALERT: Online Diploma Mills

The Better Business Bureau says, while some are legitimate, some online schools issue diplomas that aren't worth the paper they are printed on.

The Better Business Bureau warns of four so-called "online diploma mills." they are Belford High School, Belford University, Jefferson High School Online and Vencer High School Online.

The BBB lists some warning signs when looking for schools online. They recommend avoiding schools that have degrees or diplomas based on "life experience" and require little or no work. A legitimate school will not guarantee you will get a diploma or degree. Be wary of deals for pursuing multiple degrees at a time, along with paying for degrees instead of for credit hours.

    Your comment tells me you've never worked hard for anything; especially a REAL educational degree. If you had, then you too would be against these lazy individuals receiving these bogus college degrees. The attitude you display is why our country is slipping into the toilet. I bet you voted for obama too.

    This is a good opportunity to uncover local professors/educators with bogus degrees. Yes, they're here. Yes, you call them Dr. Yes, their degrees are worthless.
