Fraudbusters: The Battle Against Diploma Mills

February 3, 2022

Free Webinar | 2:00-3:00 pm ET

This webinar addresses issues related to the dynamic and complex world of academic fraud. Attendees will learn the techniques and tools necessary to detect bogus institutions and documents and ensure fake credentials are not honored.

The webinar will be moderated by fellow author Jasmin Saidi-Kuehnert, President and CEO of ACEI.

Topics covered include:

  • guidelines in handling cases of fraud,
  • advice to prevent institutions and organizations from becoming victims of fraud,
  • how diploma and accreditation mills operate, as well as
  • the sensational stories of two of the biggest degree mills ever seen: Axact and St. Regis University.

The presenters, authors of AACRAO’s Guide to Bogus Institutions and Documents, offer perspectives from the sectors of higher education, consumer protection, government, and law enforcement.

Join us for an informative webinar for anyone in higher education, but especially for those seeking to make informed decisions about the possibility of fraudulent, altered, or misleading documents.
