Please call me Dr. Carter

I would really like to meet someone who claims to have a master's or doctorate from the University of Wexford. As we all know, you can buy a degree and immediately refer to yourself as "Doctor". However, until I started looking into it, I didn't realize just how many unaccredited universities are out there. Even though the University of Wexford at Zurich has been revealed as a fraud, surprisingly, there are still people out there claiming degrees.

This guy, this politician, this guy, and this new member are among them. The list goes on and on.

The greatest is this guy who not only claims "highest honors in International Business Management from University of Wexford, Zurich, Switzerland" which is a fraudulent degree, but he is also a member of the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners, USA.

Now that's irony.

I had a roommate that decided that he was going to drop out of real college and get his degree online. He tried to convince us it was legitimate because he was not just getting a fake degree - the online school was going to assess his life experiences and give him college credits for the things he had accomplished thus far. He could get credit for earning Eagle Scout, his mission, part-time jobs he had held, etc.

Luckily, I think he decided that it wasn't going to work out, and I don't think he ever got his diploma.

I think the University of Wexford has a football team playing in one of the six hundred bowl games this month. Didn't Tyler Lyman play ball there?

I can't believe that many people broadcast there fake degrees - especially the politician. Well, thanks to Aubrey they have been exposed for the frauds they are. Bravo, Aubrey, Bravo.

How about the Norman J. Davis School of Law? I think Norman and Uncle Earl saw that one many years ago when they went to Los Angeles to work one summer.

It has a nice ring to it. BTW, I have a yodeler certificate. Is that wrong?
