Fake college accreditation agencies that claim to oversee a variety of online college and university degree programs.

Most of these agencies "accredit" diploma mills or degree mills.

Consumers Beware: NONE of these accrediting agencies are recognized as college accreditors in the U.S. by the Council on Higher Education Accreditation or the U.S. Department of Education. As such, colleges claiming “accreditation” by these agencies are not accepted as valid providers of online degrees and should be approached with great caution if college credibility is important to you.

Remember, most diploma mills and degree mills are accredited—but by fake or phony agencies that the degree mills themselves own and operate!
