We warn potential students to avoid being taken in by the deceptive press releases and false advertising of speedydegrees.com.
They send ads dressed up like legitimate information into e-mailboxes via Google Alerts under the heading of online degrees. But this ‘school’ is a diploma mill that issues fake college degrees through Ashwood University, a partner in crime. These are the facts:
- They claim to be highly accredited, but are not accredited by any accreditation body that is recognized by the US Department of Education.
- They advertise that customers can receive a college degree in 7 days. Does that sound legitimate?
- No school work is required; just fill out a form and pay the money. Alarms should go off here.
- Employers can check them out quickly through Google‘s search engine; and the search results provide enough information to indicate that this is a fake degree mill. Any co-worker, friend, significant other or child can easily check it out as well. It may seem like a quick way to earn a job promotion right now; but the embarrassment and shame that follow the future revelation that the degree is worthless and that its holder is a cheater should be a strong deterrent. A damaged reputation coupled with the erosion of trust on the job and at home is not easily repaired.
So instead, earn a reputatble accredited online degree. Aesop’s fable, The Tortoise and the Hare, has a lesson in this for all of us: “Slow and steady wins the race.”
