Great Resource for Exposing Diploma Mills
January 27, 2010
Our good friends from the UK, Verifile Ltd are clearly the international authority on all things related to diploma mills. EmployeeScreenIQ has been working hand in hand with them to highlight the problem and give employers the tools they need to ensure that their job applicants are not misrepresenting their educational background. They have exposed more than 3,000 fraudulent institutions across the world and are adding new ones every day.
They just released a product called Accredibase, which is a global database of unaccredited education institutions and unrecognized accrediting agencies, as a commercial product. We invite you to check it out. They have also published a report designed to give an insight into the operation of diploma mills, the risks they pose and their global reach, and to propose solutions for tackling this important issue.
