    I assume you folks know how to check out a company so can you please tell me if this company at DiplomaCompany.com which has a great looking web-site, is legitimate or a scam? I cannot find much information and nobody ever answers the telephone listed on the web site (702) 475-6373 (only voicemail).
    The address listed is in Las Vegas at 819 North Rainbow Blvd. but their IP address is in Washington State. The Las Vegas BBB claims they are not a member but that they get over a hundred calls a week asking about this company. Does anybody at your forum have experience with this company (good or bad)? Is there a way to know who the owner is in case they pocket my $229? I need a diploma - any diploma just to emigrate to be with my family. Anyway, your help with this is much appreciated.

    Their web site says, "Our products are also sold with the intent that they are to be used for entertainment, novelty and harmless purposes". I'm not a lawyer, but I imagine you could get yourself in serious legal trouble for using it in a fraudulent manner. Otherwise, the site seems legit and they do use www.authorize.net to take payments, which is a legitimate operation.

    If you receive a fake diploma, be careful what you use it for.

    Here is a small set of facts that might interest you.

    1) We expect you to do your own due dilligence if you're, as you obviously are, intent on buying something that is either worthless or illegal, or both.

    2) We don't like it when people claim they are in California when their IP number says something different

    3) When too many different users in the same part of the world post things about diploma scams in a very short period, we become...interested.

    It would be interesting to hear why you'd need a diploma to emigrate from California.

    Palos Verde? I doubt you could find it. What Basenji means is we don't like spammers.

    Isn't getting a fake diploma a fraud? Bit weird to ask if it is a fraude that can be trusted.

    If Frankly Speaking spends 20 minutes on Google like I did, it become clear that DiplomaCompany.com and whatever other names they are probably using by now, are on-line scams. Some of these complaints go back to 2008 and some go back a few days. Judging from what I see, there is no real way to get a fake diploma on-line... too many horror stories like these:

    I only went back 3 pages, (did not need to go further). One interesting thing is that I also found a bunch of "fake diploma review" site which was rather amusing, which all seem to be owned an operated by the various scam companies giving themselves "top marks" "No 1", "The Best", "Two Thumbs UP" and the like. The reviews are so one-sided and full of praise that they too must also be frauds. I never realized how big that fraud segment was. People must be losing millions. The FBI sting adds an interesting twist to it all as well.

    For Mr. Administrator

    Because I was a victim of identity theft 4 years ago, I now use HideMyIP and GhostSurfer when I go online. I have lived in Palos Verde for 24 years, and I have some shocking news for you... There was a financial meltdown in America and California went belly up. There are now more people "EMIGRATING" out of America than IMMIGRATING" into America. I lost my 12 year old job with a Fortune 500 company and nobody wants to hire a guy over 40 these days so I am EMIGRATING to Sweden. They only allow certain professions to immigrate. Even more people are going to China and Canada. They also have educational requirements for emigration that are very strict. For example having a engineering degree (like me) is not enough, it must be in a specific field (i.e. environmental or hydraulic engineering for example). This is why these diploma mills have become so popular lately.

    Lastly, if I had the money to do the proper due diligence, I would not have come to your site look for help. As I said I was a victim of both a job loss and ID theft. I lost over $140,000 in less than a month along with my $80,000 salary and over $300,000 invested with Lehman Brothers. So please don't be so quick to judge people.

    And thanks for posting the links. I guess I will have to solve my diploma problem someplace other than on-line. If anyone knows of a place where I can get a replica/fake diploma, without getting ripped off, please send me a message. Stay well all.

    @FranklySpeaking. Interesting. Ms Wong or Mr Anthony Please explain your association with <www.DramaRainbow.com> ].

    If as you say, you want diploma mill information from us then this would not be a smart move.

    IF the immigration authorities noticed that you are using a fake diploma ( and they are very used to checking these things) then you would jeopardise any hope of immigrating to that and possibly other countries.

    It would not be a smart move for anyone to use fake possibly illegal diploma's to try to con government officials with.
    It goes without saying that we would not assist anyone in this endeavour and we are not interested in helping any fraud diploma mill to gain funds.

    I look forward to your explanation of the chinese connection to you. By the way you also claim to be a commercial pilot, why not try to emigrate with this qualification?

    Surely some one with engineering qualifications as well as being a commercial pilot and being in the education business as well, would have little trouble emigrating?

    One of the purposes of A.F.I. is to educate, to counsel, to warn possible fraud victims.

    We promote the universal values​​: integrity, honesty, trust, respect and love.

    @FranklySpeaking: If you want to commit fraud, A.F.I. is not involved in that.

    You've spent a lot more time on Google than that, haven't you? Resposting stuff as a guest won't help, neither will re-registering under a new user name. We've removed those links - again - and you may try to register here as Watson, Irate-in-Derby, Blue Circle James, Fraud Platoon Local or whatever: it won't help.

    I assume that you were happy as a bird to find this post by FranklySpeaking, as it gave you a reason to post the same thing again. Frankly speaking, the timing makes me wonder if it was a coincidence at all.


    I expect people who have been living in the same place for 24 years to know how to spell it. But what do I know, maybe there is Palos Verde in China or the UK.

    You certainly won't get that information from anyone here: the message to you is that if you're intent on buying something you know is fake, then good luck. You might need it.

    @ FS,

    If you were in PV you'd know how to spell it and you'd know which one you lived in.

    You did, yes, and then you brought up another matter. The interesting thing about you and your various incarnations is that you use, among others, an internet provider in the same country as FranklySpeaking, who came around to ask for advice on which fake was the best. Care to explain that?

    "basenji" seems to be more interested in where people live and travel than on helping the people who come to this site to find out what is legitimate and what is a scam. Do you want to help people or psycho-analyze everyone who asks for help? I think people have a right to disclose or not to disclose who and where they are and if Frankly Speaking doesn't want to explain his travels, that is his or her right and has nothing to do with the company he inquired about.

    I know for a fact that company is ripping-off hundreds of Asians and Americans everyday, and when I posted some links to help document the fraud going back to 2008 - you deleted them. WHY? If you are an American, don't you believe in freedom of speech? You are the only forum that I have ever come across that Censors essential information based on where somebody lives or travels. This is insane, especially when we are trying to share historical data and link it to current complaints.

    Everyone can stand on their own merits and defend themselves. I don't see diploma company or any of these other scam diploma mills, posting any rebuttals do you? I now must wonder about the mission of your web site. If you truly are dedicated to eradicating fraud you'd focus on exposing the fraud and not the geographical location of victims or posters.

    Can you tell us where the real office for Diploma Company is located for example? Their web site says "Las Vegas" but their IP says Washington. Why not do us all a favor and tell us who is behind that company and WHY HAVE THEY BEEN ALLOWED TO SWINDLE PEOPLE SINCE 2008????? Is this really an FBI sting operation?

    I teach in a foreign university and at least 10 students every month tell me they get cheated by these various on-line companies - not only diplomacompany.com. Even though these local graduates have their own degrees from their own universities, many graduates want to get better paying jobs, by claiming they graduate from an American college. No one diploma mill company seems any more honorable than the other in my opinion. But after spending 2-3 hours on the Internet investigating this underground industry, I am horrified to see how believable their web sites have become - even supported with bogus "review" web sites.

    Anyway, if your forum is designed to stop the fraud, why bash, ridicule, or harass the people who try to report it? Seems counter-productive to me. If you are not receptive to new information from newcomers or visitors, then just lock your forum off and have a closed-loop dialogue amongst yourselves. I certainly like the concept of your web site, but the cynical treatment of people who try to help expose fraud is shameful and not helpful at all. This is called "constructive criticism" guys so please don't construe it to mean anything else. I know you don't collect a salary to do this work - which is commendable, but can you please be more civil towards people who want to pass on credible complaints and information, and respect their right to privacy if they want it? Stay well fellas and keep up the good work.

    Hi Ricky, care to tell us the truth about what you are doing? :rolleyes:

    By the way you forgot to post your frequent saying "Hey, Really great work,I would like to join your blog anyway so please continue sharing with us"

    How is the Generic Viagra business these days, posting lots of spam?

    Oh dear me Ricky, the online medical site you link to is viral. Perhaps we should investigate it ? Thanks for bringing it to our attention.

    I think "Stay well" is exactly how FranklySpeaking put it too.

    jeckysmith I am a spammer

    There are many well known universities that offer fake diploma. The people have many reasons to buy fake diploma. Fake degrees are seems to be like as original degree as they use high quality paper. I am also here looking for diploma company that offer fake diploma.

    You're here to promote one, that's different. This thread is closed, spammers and potential diploma mill customers can establish contact with each other on other forums.
