FAKE QUALIFICATIONS ARE NOW A BILLION POUND INDUSTRY

FAKE QUALIFICATIONS ARE NOW A BILLION POUND INDUSTRY

If the well-groomed intelligent looking person sitting opposite you for a job interview answers the questions well, why not just say – “When can you start”?

After all interviews are a chore and most of us really don’t know how to do them. What we really want is someone who will fit into our organisation, someone personable and if they support Leeds United so much the better.

Obviously if the post requires specialist qualifications, the candidate will be asked to produce their degree certificates and references. But you probably suppose that a person who is not actually an engineer is hardly going to be asking for a job as engineer, so yes, just accept the paperwork at face value and put it in the drawer.

You think?

Link – here — this lady faked her qualifications to work as a Psychiatrist for 22 years, yes you have read that right, 22 years. She was placed into a position of trust pretending to be a Psychiatrist whilst treating Alzheimer patients.

Scary much?

“The convicted fraudster had failed the first year of medical school in New Zealand in 1992, but subsequently managed to register as a doctor with the General Medical Council (GMC) with a forged degree certificate, forged primary medical qualification and a fake letter of recommendation from her most recent job in Pakistan, under a visa scheme that has since been discontinued”

Being a crook, she also took financial advantage.

She “befriended” one of her patents who was recently widowed and fraudulently drafted a Will for that patient and also applied for Power of Attorney over her patient’s estate.

I am pleased to say she did go to Jail for all the fraud she had committed.

But – How did this women get to be in such a position of trust for 22 years, prescribing extremely strong medication (anti-psychotic drugs) and even sectioning patients!

The trouble is, honest people find it hard to believe in criminals. In the abstract, yes. But not in your office, in a job interview, with coffees and bickies – Surely not.

BUT AGAIN – It has been reported that around 75 bogus Universities websites and criminal operations were shut down in the past 4 years in England alone –more than 200 potential cases of fraud based upon the use of bogus degrees and similar fake qualifications have been reported since 2015

As a Notary Public office we are able to offer the service of verification checks of any proposed candidate’s qualification issued in UK, information contained in a curriculum vitae & verifying Criminal records check.

A  Notary Public is a trusted Legal officer whose certification is recognised in any country of the world and who is able to warrant facts and authenticate documents.

There are websites that you can purchase these bogus certificates directly from who are offering “get a realistic FAKE PhD Degree, buy it now @ $250.00”. Here is a –LINK – to one.

Dishonest people who purchase Bogus Educational qualifications are doing so in the hope of landing that “high-flying” job– there have been many reports recently of Doctors who are not qualified who have purchased a fake Degree Certificate to secure the job of their dreams even though they have no medical qualifications whatsoever – yes this really does happen!

See here – a link – to just one of such cases.

And there are more and more reports on the web of people in positions of trust who have used fake and bogus certificates to get the job they want – even aeroplane pilots! – the mind boggles!

Some of the headlines relating to fake Degrees:-

“Pilots and airline staff suspended for fake degrees”
“A PILOT who was caught inventing qualifications to lie his way into a commercial airline job is now flying holidaymakers out of Scotland”
“Thousands could be using fake degrees to apply for jobs”

If you are an employer or recruiter anywhere in the world my message to you is, don’t get caught out by unscrupulous individuals who feel it is okay to lie and cheat their way into employment that they are not qualified or entitled to do.

I am pleased to say that we offer a verification service so you can 100% be reliant on the paperwork your candidate produces. We can verify and authenticate any English Academic papers, we can verify details given on a C.V i.e check references, work experience etc.

Our verifications will be accepted around the world, we can obtain all necessary additional Apostille and Consular stamps.

We also have processes in place to verify and notarise as genuine ACRO and DBS Police Check!

Don’t give these fraudsters a way in. Let’s put a stop to this deceit and verify qualifications and references EVERY TIME – the more recruiters and HR Departments and other employment professionals opt to do this then the less likely it is that a fraudster can find a way in!

So don’t let anyone involve you in their intricate frauds. As the great man almost said “Shame on their greed, shame on their wicked schemes – I’ll say this, I don’t give a damn about their dreams” – Here’s the song –LINK HERE-
