Warning about Internet Diploma Mills [or Scams]

There are many sources of High School and University Diplomas to be found on the internet.  In many cases these sources are affiliated with legitimate institutions.  In other cases, there is no legitimately accredited school and no genuine diploma being awarded.  Be wary of any entity which promises a quick diploma for payment.  In particular, the City of Cleveland and the Cleveland Civil Service Commission will investigate diplomas and institutions it believes to be improper.
