    "Ezell, who co-wrote the book Degree Mills: The Billion-Dollar Industry That Has Sold Over a Million Fake Diplomas, estimates half of new PhDs issued every year in the U.S. are fake."

    Yikes!

    We now have at least three, and possibly four threads on this latest exposé of Canadian degree-fraud. Two others are: the latest part of the Axact thread (Accredited / Unaccredited) and the KA-BOOM thread.

    KA-BOOM!! Toronto man "angry" about his $8,100 fake degree being exposed

    Axact universities

    --and now a third (this one). There might be one more, but I can't find it right now...

    I think this problem is everywhere.
    If Employers required WES report as a prerequisite for employment then the issue would be reduced dramatically. And also consumer education .

    I remember a decade ago or more seeing TV special about fake degrees sold in Toronto.

    He wasn't hired as an attorney. He was hired as an office manager and it looks like he did it for another firm as well.

    Looks like this guy just wanted an office in a law firm to provide cover for his scams.

    The lawyer likely just figured he was getting someone with legal training cheap to do a job that didn't require bar admission.

    Either way, the reason you don't "buy" it seems to be that you didn't actually read the article and just jumped right to slandering a Canadian attorney.
