    They have these things in the US. They are called "diploma mills". They are semi-legitimate. The 270 area code is for Kentucky.

    What does semi-legitimate mean? Is it legal or what?

    It means it might be legal. You will pay money for a piece of paper that says you have a degree. You probably don't do any coursework. The "university" is probably not accredited by any accrediting agency in the U.S. In other words, whatever you get is going to be nice wallpaper but isn't going to do anything for your career.

    Holy smokes! You could ask yourself a number of questions here: how is it possible for any “you†out there to be nominated for a Bachelors? Why are there no exams, books, tests, interviews or classes and no pre-school qualification requirements? Why do you have to call a toll free number if you are nominated? Exactly what does non-accredited mean and can you choose a degree in any field? And, would you really want a degree from someone who can’t even spell the word Bachelor. Or Master. Yeah, I know they did this on purpose to confuse spam filters but anyway!

    This is spam of a kind that used to be sent out en masse by the University Degree Program, a diploma mill consortium owned by Americans but run from Romania, Israel and the United Kingdom. Early in 2003, the Federal Trade Commission and the UK government took action against UDP, but by that time, it had already sold more than 30,000 degrees from bogus institutions, earning somewhere between $50 million and $100 million or even more.

    A Bachelor’s degree from Harrington University, a UDP ‘university’ that sent spam emails similar to the one above could be bought for $1.400 (yay, you could get a $500 discount if you acted quickly!), in the field of the customers choice and with a grade point average according to the customers wish. The diploma was an imitation of the diploma used by the University of California, Los Angeles and transcripts remarkably similar to the ones issued by another American University.

    The web sites of some of the UDP universities are still in operation and spam similar to UDP’s has continued to be sent long after the owners handed over $100,000 and promised to stop selling degrees. Over the years, things have changed a bit; nowadays, if someone calls the toll free number above, he or she may receive a call back with instructions to pay the fee for the degree via Western Union. When the money is transferred, the university is never heard of again.
     
  8. They might consider hiring a proofreader before sending out their next round of spam. :rolleyes:
