Before you purchase your replacement diploma from this company, please read my experience carefully before you waste your money like I did.
I am a young professional, and I hold a PhD in Psychology from a respected school on the East Coast. I graduated in the spring of 2009, and have yet to receive my diploma. I only have the fake diploma issued to me on graduation. So, I contacted Diploma Company (www.diplomacompany.com) for a copy of my school's diploma to hang on my wall. My plan was to keep my original at home, and use the novelty diploma at work.
I spent over $400.00 with Diploma Company, and I received garbage. When I received my package from FedEx, I was so excited! I tore it open like a kid opening a present on Christmas Day! When I finally saw what I spent $400.00 on, my heart sank like a rock.
I was told that I would receive the official replica of the school's diploma with actual seal and a copy of my transcripts. A friend of mine received her real diploma from the school, and what I received from Diplomacompany.com looked nothing like the original. The "seal" on my diploma was printed on with what appeared to be an inkjet printer. The quality was terrible, the images were fuzzy, so I called to complain and receive a refund. I was told that I wouldn't receive a refund "Just becuase it doesn't look real enough." I told them that it didn't look like a real diploma at all, I could have done this at home. They talked me into paying to have my diploma reprinted and they could offer me a gold seal for $75.00. I reluctantly agreed, though I should have listened to my gut instinct. I made sure to ask "This is a gold seal that's raised off the paper?" He said "YES." I waited 6 more days, and I received my new diploma. Ripped off again!
When I opened my new diploma, not only was the paper color and size wrong, but my "raised seal" was a cheesy shiny flat gold seal with black speckles all in it. I called DiplomaCompany again, and was told that they don't offer raised seals, only flat foil seal. I asked why I was told I would receive a raised, and was told that he never agreed to that. When I persisted that he did agree to that, or I never would've paid more money, he replied with, "I bet you can't prove it."
I bet you can't prove it? Are you serious!? I immediately asked that my money be returned to me, and was told that unless I could prove I was told there would be a raised seal, I couldn't have any of my money back, not even my reprint or shipping fees.
I tried emailing because my future calls would be "disconnected" once I told them who I was, and all my emails went unanswered.
So, here I am, out of almost $500.00 total, and still left with nothing to show for my years of hard work. I suppose I'll just wait for the school to eventually send me my diploma, and I'll use my documents from www.diplomacompany.com to start my logs in the fireplace this winter. At least they'll be good for something.
Please save your money and your sanity. If you find yourself in my position and need a copy of your diploma fast, don't use Diploma Company.
