    The niche market appeal of this one is apparent and reprehensible.

    The bogus accreditor is The United States Commission of Colleges. At this moment, AFU seems to be the only "school" recognized, apparently having received accreditation on the same day it applied, ten days ago. :p The "Acquiring USCOC Accreditation" page is a must read, offering a 3 month trial accreditation for $200.

    The domain registration for AFU lists a web development company in Connecticut, Blue Wave Data. According to their portfolio page BWD also do the site for the Redding University mill.

    From the domain registration for AFU:
    Organization:
    BLUE WAVE DATA, LLC
    Web Development
    34 Shunpike Road Suite 3 PMB 190
    Cromwell, CT 06416

    From the domain registration for Blue Wave Data:
    Organization:
    NETBUILDERZ
    Net Builderz
    34 Shunpike Road Suite 3 PMB 147
    Cromwell, CT 06416

    The contact address very briefly appearing on the web site of the Almeda College & University scam circa the time it was claiming an affiliation with National University, as recorded Sept. 25, 2001:
    Mailing address
    Almeda Educational Services
    34-3 Shunpike Road
    PMB 139
    Cromwell, CT 06416

    Definitely a diploma mill. This site would have been more fun to read had they offered degrees in the following:

    Bachelor of Nuclear Detonations
    Bachelor of Sharp Shooting
    Master of Naval Mutiny
    Master of Science in Tossing Grenades
    Doctor of Tank Mechanics :D

    "Apply your military traning and experience to get your AFU Degree today! " it says here on the website. Anybody else that was in the Navy remember what "AFU" stood for? That degree would be accepted kinda like the "papers" a rookie is asked for. :D

    Dunno, but what they managed to do yesterday included changing the domain registration to reflect a California address. :D
