After receiving over 3,000 complaints about DiplomaXpress.com and 22 other fake diploma companies we are hereby sounding the alarm...
PUBLIC WARNING! - MAJOR SCAM IN PROGRESS!
There are now 23 companies on-line offering to sell fake or "replica" or "novelty" diplomas,
transcripts, degrees, etc. NONE OF THEM ACTUALLY WILL SEND YOU A CREDIBLE
DOCUMENT THAT WOULD PASS INSPECTION AND MOST DO NOT SEND ANYTHING AT ALL!
They know most people will not file a complaint with the police for less than a $500 scam - especially about getting false official documents which is a crime in most states.
Most of these companies will charge you $99 to $499 for diplomas which they claim are
identical. Only one company sent our investigator a diploma from the ones below
and it has a huge watermark in one inch letters that says "REPLICA DOCUMENT". The other companies listed below sent nothing at all after we documented the many victims sent their money - by money order, western union, or certified bank check. [continued below]....
..... If they were legitimate companies that produced what they offered on-line, they would accept Pay Pal and Credit Card payments.
Thus far Scam Patrol International has spent 9 months investigating the below companies after receiving a record number of complaints - 3,873 in the last year. We are now cooperating with the FTC and U.S. Postal Inspectors.
THESE COMPANIES ARE OUTRIGHT FRAUDS THAT USE VERY CONVINCING WEB SITES AND FABRICATED TESTIMONIALS FROM NON-EXISTENT PEOPLE:
Real Deal Diplomas
Next Day Diploma
These companies also fraudulently display the BBB seal of approval on their web sites along with the logos of UPS, DHL, and Federal Express, but SPI verified that none of these companies have
legitimate accounts with any of these courier companies.
We further confirmed that none of these companies have verifiable street addresses. THEY EXIST ONLY IN CYBERSPACE! One company actually displays a storefront photo on their web site but our investigator visited the location personally and discovered the photo was made with photoshop manipulation and the actual address was really a real estate office!
Some of these companies will list their telephone numbers - even 800 numbers that are not registered in their names and then are forwarded to disposable pre-paid cell phones to avoid arrest by law enforcement officials.
Recently the FTC has asked the FBI's assistance in this investigation. We expect some of these scammers, but certainly not all will be arrested. Some will go underground for a few weeks and then resurface with a different name and website.
Here's the big problem friends, Whenever these con artists get exposed on line, they simply create a new name and and website to continue the fraud.
Thus far we have found on -line histories and broken links for over 1,239 such companies. DO NOT BELIEVE NOR TRUST ANY OF THEM OR YOU WILL SURELY LOSE YOUR MONEY!
These are some of the most sophisticated and believable web sites in the scam world and in difficult economic times like now they lure hundreds of people each and every day. We urge the public to BEWARE OR BE SORRY!
