    The link takes to a site that tried to infect my PC with malware.
    My Anti-malware app stopped it.


    Maybe better to use the info and do your own search on google.

    search.Israel: Arrests in Diploma-For-Sale Operation – The Yeshiva World



    An Israel Police spokesman announced arrests in a diploma-for-sale operation as a result of a joint investigation with customs agents. Thirteen suspects have been arrested. They are suspected of playing a role in selling bogus education degrees to Israelis, degrees supposedly issued by schools abroad.

    In some cases, those who paid for the forged academic degrees received benefits in the workplace based on having honestly earned the degree. This too is being probed. Interestingly, the schools used on the bogus degrees are not accepted by the Israel Council for Higher Education .

    The case was handled by the Tel Aviv District Attorney’s Office in cooperation with the Yahalom Unit of the Customs Authority. Agents on Wednesday morning 3 Shevat raided the homes and offices of suspects, confiscating property, computers and records as well as sealing bank accounts.

    This Israeli article (perhaps somewhat incendiary?) says all purchasers of the latest fake degrees are thought to be Arab government workers. Scammer made 4,800% markup, by using blank certificates somehow obtained from Russian Universities.

    Arabs obtaining Israeli degrees? I couldn't help but smile on that one.

    Actually, it appears to be Arabs purchasing faked Russian degrees (real universities) from Israelis.
    Not quite the same - but yeah - still pretty comical.
