    Another Higher Education Head with fake degrees

    Joseph Alercia II, owner & director of the PA state approved Lion Investigation Academy (distance learning PI training school), has degrees from the following:

    "Lasalle Extension University-Chicago"
    One diploma and a Bachelor of Law

    "Brantridge Forest School"
    Doctorate of Psychology

    "Kensington University College of Law"
    Doctor of Jurisprudence

    He also lists "Univeral Schools" a couple of times which I could not locate anywhere.

    There are other schools listed.

    ALL of this information was taken directly from the academy's PDF catalog. To view, go to:

    http://www.lioninvestigationacademy.com/LIA.pdf & then jump to page 29 to view his education , or obvious lack thereof.

    LaSalle in Chicago was not necessarily fake. It was once accredited by DETC (then known as National Home Study Council). So the legitimacy of the LaSalle degree depends on the date it was awarded.

    Kensington also not necessarily fake -- once was CA "approved."

    Brantridge Forest School is a diploma mill.

    Brantridge Forest School?

    Does anyone know anything about the "Brantridge Forest School?" Its googleable graduates tend to have degrees in non-standard health care areas including a Dr. of Chromotheraphy.

    That particular accredited LaSalle had no connection to the degree mill in Louisiana.

    I am sure the Louisiana one chose the name because the Chicago one had been around for a very long time before it closed.

    Exactly what qualifications do owners of trade schools need? I would guess none.

    I love the "chromotherapy." Treatment with colors?

    I see that this person also has a Feng Shui "Black Hat" certification.

    Raymond Buckland is said to have a doctorate in anthropology from Brantridge Forest. He has made a fair amount of money writing ~ especially his _Complete Book of Witchcraft_

    I am quite confident that Brantridge University, Brantridge Forest School, etc., is just another name for the fake called Sussex College of Technology, and the University of the Science of Man.

    Pretty sure they were always in the health products world, as well as selling degrees. Still one of the places you can buy a radionics box.

    Raymond Buckland operated the only diploma mill supermarket I ever noted. A well-produced little catalog, selling the diplomas of Bosdon Academy of Music, Eugenia Institute of Metaphysics, Gottbourg University of Switzerland, Honoré College of France, New Christian Institute of New England , Royal Academy of Science and Art, Taylor College of England, and Weinberg University of Germany.
    Author/co-author:15 editions of Bears Guide to Earning Degrees by Distance Learning,
    Degree Mills: the billion-dollar industry that has sold more than a million fake diplomas, How to Repair Food, 30+ more.
