UNIVERSITY DIPLOMAS

Obtain a prosperous future, money earning power,
and the admiration of all.
Roger,

Talking about scams - I am pretty sure everybody is familiar with the
following net junk:

"Diplomas from prestigious non-accredited universities based on your present
knowledge and life experience. No required tests, classes, books, or
interviews.  Bachelors, masters, MBA, and doctorate (PhD)
diplomas available in the field of your choice. No one is turned down.
Confidentiality assured. Call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, including
Sundays and holidays."

???????????

I looked into the recipient list on the e-mail - they simply go "A to Z."
Isn't such solicitation on such an unbelievable scale somehow illegal?It
should be stopped.  Can it be? How?

I wonder how long will that be before they will start offering licenses?
