A reader, known as Raymond, became concerned when he came across a Facebook advertisement on a fake degree mill that uses the MOE logo.
He wrote in to Stomp saying:
"I thought my eyes were fooling me, then I went to MOE to look at the logo.
"Huh? When did MOE become a degree mill? Better alert unsuspecting people to this."
"Upon clicking on the link, it leads to the website of Global accredited degrees."
A check on the site revealed that verified degrees can be purchased at a fraction of the cost of pursuing a degree.
While it cannot be confirmed that the site is issuing degrees from the Ministry of Education, there were many alleged testimonials that assured users that they can be on their way to a successful career by purchasing a degree.
