I need a bachelors degree fast! Where can I buy an online degree?

“I need a bachelors degree fast” is how the Google search probably started. Afterward, it probably switched to online degree programs or more to the point, searches on fake online colleges, bogus PhD degrees or simply, “buying a bachelors degree online.” No matter the search, the end result is the same, people are buying phony degrees online and it is a growing trend. Why are people buying them? (Well, I suppose the answer is obvious. Isn’t it?)

In this episode of the Jim Stroud Show, Jim Stroud examines the booming phenomenon of buying fake academic credentials and the potential consequences of doing such.
