Unfortunately, any person with the talent to design a website can claim to offer accredited online degrees. For those considering obtaining a degree online, it’s important to resolve whether the institution they’re planning to attend is legitimate and accredited. Mayfield University and Must University are two fake online “universities” scamming people out of their money. People across the world have been scammed out of their money by these two fake and unaccredited “institutions.” Although Mayfield University and Must University both have nice websites, the attractive appearance of the websites are a part of the scam the people behind these websites are using.
The Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) offers a database for people to check to see if an institution has accreditation in the United States. This database also provides consumers with a list of legitimate accreditors.
We have to be careful about giving money to the people behind these scams, considering Rochville University, a phony online university, is believed to be a vehicle for terrorist funding.
Consumers must understand that they cannot earn a degree completely or mostly through “life experience” credits. When you hear and/or see a degree being offered solely or mostly through life experience credits, then this is one of the strongest indicators that this is a fake and unaccredited institution.
Don’t get so desperate to obtain a degree that you’re willing to buy one from these bogus operations, such as Mayfield University, Must University, and Rochville University. After spending large sums of money for these phony degrees, you will be highly disappointed that you wasted your money. Although many people like to get something for nothing, a degree is something that you have to earn—legitimate degrees cannot be bought.
Numerous Revolutionary Paideia readers have contacted me about the aforementioned online universities. They have shared with me how they have been scammed by these bogus operations, and they have asked for my assistance in helping them to get their money back that they have lost through these scams. Fortunately, many readers are thanking me for writing articles that helped them to avoid the scams of fake online institutions. We have to spread the word about these online universities to make it possible for more people to evade the scams of online universities.
It’s unfair for anyone to attempt to argue that fake online institutions should keep everyone from pursuing degrees online. If you have a desire to obtain a degree online, then you need to check with CHEA to see if the institution is accredited. If the institution does not show up in CHEA’s database, then you shouldn’t waste your time with the school. CHEA’s database aids us in resolving whether an institution is accredited. While an institution can be legitimate without having accreditation, it’s best to avoid those online institutions that aren’t accredited. Attending an unaccredited online institution could put you at risk of attending a phony institution.
Never settle for the lies of phony online universities.
