    Olwa University or Olford Walters University is not accredited and it has no authorization to operate. The employees are linked to Axact and impersonate government officials to have documents falsely certified.

    Olwa has '' graduation season '' currently. They claim to want to support learning during the pandemic. They give 80% reduction. 80% of fake is still zero.

    Oh by the way, I had this drunk sounding guy on the phone and told him how sorry I felt for him that he had to sell fake degrees for a small commission for the Arabs. He went nuts.

    By the way, most of Olwa's '' graduates '' list these fake degrees on their resume. Some are doctors who use these fake degrees in their employment. Most are from the United Arab Emirates.

    These are some of their scammy alumni using their degrees for medical and other purposes:

    Zulfequar Hussain
    Saleem Ullah rahman
    Nour Homsi
    Moe Jamal
    Dr. Tamer Abdelgawad
    Mohammad Al Hashmi
    Hisham Qaddomi
    Hani Zeid


    Since exposing degree mills is quite fun, I'll probably hang around here a bit more every now and then ;-)

    Ouch. Victim or offender? Hard to decide...

    I felt sorry for him.
    He said his name was Alex Riviera and his accent was Australian.
    I think he is just a slave for Axact. He probably gets a can of beer for every fake degree he sells.
    LOL

    That's not how it works, although Axact employees do have to sign a non-disclosure agreement.

    Salaries are two to five times the going rate. Quite tempting for the young men with little or no education but good English skills Axact recruits.

    Oh, not really. While issues like accreditation can cross up some people, buying a diploma is a scam for both the buyer and the seller.

    When there were a lot of unaccredited schools operating--with varying degrees of legitimacy--this question could get a little muddled. As John Bear said, one man's diploma mill is another's alternative university. But times have changed. Nontraditional or alternative schools are both traditional and mainstream now. While there are still a handful of legitimate schools operating without accreditation, the list is growing smaller all the time. These days, almost everything that operates without legitimate accreditation (or comparable recognition) is a diploma mill. And buying a degree/diploma from one is a transparent scam and a conspiracy between the buyer and the seller to create something that fools others. (Transcripts for courses never taken, diplomas for degrees never earned, letters of recommendation from people who do not exist, and "verification" of it all by the diploma mill.

    If you do no work, pay a fee, and are sent a diploma, you are not an unwitting victim. You are a participant in a conspiracy, and you might be a criminal, too.

    I think we can agree on this, but I was referring to the call center guy - which is rather a little cog in a big wheel than a profiteer...?

    Okay, fair enough. Villain, not victim. No reasonable adult, no matter how ignorant of higher education, could sell this stuff and think it was legitimate. I get that a person's circumstances can push one in an undesirable direction, but working in a diploma mill boiler room makes you part of the problem. But not a lot. It is the owners who are the real criminals. Small fry don't really matter much.

    Hello!


    Oh yes. Just my $0,02: I have thought of the call canter agents like I think of opium farmers... as they most probably work for the drug lords / degree mill owners not out of malevolence, but, simply, to get their bills paid and because they might lack of other means to do so. I think most opium farmers and call center agents have themselves not a really good feeling doing so.

    However, they are still part of the problem...

    In addition to fake degrees, Axact sells fake high school diplomas (there's a Belford University and a Belford High School etc), fake teacher and engineering certifications, fake term papers and essays and fake accreditation through IAO, the International Accreditation Organization (not to mention other products like fake mobile phone apps). Then there's the upsell. Customers who have bought fake degrees are contacted by Axact sells agents offering transfer of credits to more 'prestigious' Axact schools and/or legislation of the documents bought. If the customer declines the offer, the extortion begins, with the Axact sales representatives threatening the customer with legal repercussions for buying a fake degree.
