    Wouldn't it be nice if those clowns would just send out something along the lines of this:

    Subject: - Message

    Receive an utterly fraudulent University Degree as soon as we can print it!

    Imagine the expressions of your friends when they see your prestigious diploma from some well-known slapdash diploma mill!

    Improve your outlook at parties and gain the
    disgust and revulsion of your peers!

    Choose an area that sounds really keen.
    Our so-called Degrees are available for most under-graduate and post-graduate areas of expertise. Unless, of course, it's one that would get all of us in hot water, such as an MD.

    Degrees at any level whatsoever -- Doctorates, Masters, Bachelors, Associates, Wizards, Paramount Practicioners -- in fact, anything you want will be awarded if you have enough money.

    You will recieve full credit, satisfying all requirements of any diploma, based on your ability to dial a telephone and read to us a series of fifteen or sixteen digits plus a date from a card which you probably already have in your own pocket! Surely, such signal accomplishments deserve the recognition of a University Degree!

    Unconditional admission means that you
    will be admitted into this program, without prejudice, so long as you are willing to transmit to us the entire contents of your wallet, money clip, and checking account. How could it be easier?

    You will receive official diploma documentation, and a record of your credentials will be kept on registarial files for as long as we can be located.

    We are waiting to hear from you right now.
    You don't even need our address! Just a phone number, which you must call within 72 hours (it is changed every three days). Call anytime, including holidays. Our answering machine will explain just how to send us lots of money, and you can do it 24-7.

    1 - x x x - x x x - x x x x

    All calls are welcome, and all will receive our individual attention in processing your credit card data.
