    Am I the last person to figure out that you can get your very own college degree through the convenience of eBay? Just search for "college degree" and peruse a variety of options.

    I'm particularly impressed by the value-priced offerings of "Sonata University". They claim to have previously sold "several hundred" degrees for $29.99 (only $9.99 for a limited time). And that doesn't even include their attractive line of "Sonata University" merchandise.

    Woohoo! Now you can purchase a Sonata degree and drive a Hyundai Sonata at the same time...wonder if Hyundai is behind Sonata University? :)

    Weren't there some real degrees available for sale on ebay ... like Heriot-Watt University and some Dutch university's MBA courses for sale?

    To further confuse the issue, you can also attend eBay University. . I'm currently on the wait list for the MLS in Shipping Overcharges......

    which offers courses by distance learning, as well as traditional classroom instruction.

    It appears that eBay University does not currently offer degree programs. But they do have an online certificate program for Education Specialists.

    While it's bad that you can buy a degree from ebay, it's worse that you can actually purchase the degree of your choosing along with a transcript with marks of your choice from the University you want.

    I did a research project earlier this year and came across this type of website - you pick the University, give them your info ( GPA, starting date, grad date, etc ) and for a mere $100 or so you could sport a very authentic looking Diploma from Harvard, again, complete with Transcripts.

    It comes down to actually checking the credentials on a resume by the HR person(s) - sad that people are lacking integrity.
