Fake Diploma Mill Degrees

One fact from the article jumped out at me.

"The number of fake doctorates sold each year is in the range of 50,000 to 60,000," states John Bear, author of "Bear's Guide to Earning Degrees by Distance Learning." "The number of real Ph.D.s awarded is around 40,000."

Bear goes on to say "In America right now, more than half of all the Ph.D.s are fake." but that is not correct. I assume he meant more than half of all PhDs issued each year are fake.

Long time no see. I had heard about that story. Here's another link (note that the short email by an ENGLISH prof has two errors including misusing the word "whom"). What an idiot.
