    So here I am sitting in a Peet's coffee shop on Market Street, San Francisco across the street from 548 Market Street, which according to the Better Business Bureau is the US headquarters for Must University, the self-described "world's largest university." I am with a reporter and cameraman from CCTV, Central China TV, the largest network in China (over a billion viewers), because Must (and others in Kureshi's "Organization for Global Learning" group) have been signing up students there. The only thing at this address is a very small mailing service bureau called Earth Class Mail, which receives their mail, scans it, and emails it to their clients in 129 countries. Of course they could not confirm whether Must is a client, but the manager did claim that they check out all their clients, who must have a real address in the US. (I think not.) Time, perhaps, to send a certified letter to that address.

    If we believe the long article and analysis at Worlds Largest Diploma Mill Scam Ring Uncovered, this organization is doing $150 to $200 million a year, which would make them, by far, the largest phony on earth. The University Degree Program, based in Romania and Israel, was "only" doing about $50 million a year. Next stop: Karachi. No, not me, but, I would guess,the CCTV team.

    Does that whopping figure include what the same entity is collecting from its RISE University front?

    MC: Does that whopping figure include what the same entity is collecting from its RISE University front?

    John: I believe that would be for all of their 20+ fake schools.

    Interestingly, when I made one of my regular pitches on my website for new programs for the book, someone who purported to be from Must High School wanted to be included in both the book and the website. They are really quite good at getting their websites listed with high Google rankings.
