    I can't believe it was by accident. James, I wish you well, and hope your West Clayton um..."degree" brings you all the success and happiness you can stand.
    Don't worry - I won't say anything about it to anybody. I've already forgotten about it. Best I can do. 'Bye.

    This post--an unverifiable anecdote at best--confuses the concept of cause-and-effect when, more likely (again, if true) it is a coincidence.

    What I'm continuously dismayed about--and again, I doubt this one is even real--is the willingness of people like this poster to ignore the obvious ethical issues of using such a credential.

    Shilling will do that.

    Do you have some sort of telecommunication time machine?

    Yes, it will. Shilling -- for a bad school that died so many years ago! Pathetic and futile. Dare I add, dumb?

    Nobody is here looking to hire people with fake degrees on their resume. The opposite, actually. We make a sport of identifying shady institutions and protecting people from them.

    Experience matters. So does integrity. Some people have fake degrees on their resume out of ignorance of the process. Those people are often embarrassed when they find out. Some even go back and get real degrees. Others know better and willingly take a shortcut. I'm sure those employees are doing well, but what Kizmet said was that they were doing well despite their fraud, not because of it.

    You say "they had to have work experience, also other schooling and or certificates added to work experience also helped to get the degree" This is a classic tactic of people selling bogus life experience degrees. They're no different than a complete fake, they just dress it up a little. The reality is that they didn't complete the work required of a recognized degree.

    Edit: Look at this from the Texas Department of Education's List of Fradulent/Substandard Institutions (note link auto-downloads XlS - https://reportcenter.highered.texas.gov/agency-publication/miscellaneous/fraudulent-substandard-institution-list-2018/)

    Listed since 2006!

    When you decide to come back here and shill again for this degree mill in four years or so maybe I'll no longer be posting in the forum and then you can respond to this post? Your excuse why you won't back up anything you claim reminds me of a recent response Rich had to a shill in another thread about a different degree mill. You essentially sound like a little kid explaining to Mommy how the lamp got broken but it couldn't have been the fault of the kid. It is obvious to everyone except the kid that he is just lying.

    I'm sorry, but I'm going to have to reject your proposal.
