    Online high school diploma frauds

    When you are going for an online high school diploma through a website please make sure that you don't give tests on the schools that are accredited from www.acocs.org
    Because it is a scam site.

    Re: Online high school diploma frauds

    Playing on the name of a real accreditation website.
    The Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS) website is acics.org.

    NOTE the slight spelling difference;
    ACICS
    ACOCS

    The ACICS.org can be found listed on page 6 at ed.gov, fourth one down, at the U.S. Department of Education website.



    Your website acocs.org is not found there.
    ed.gov/search;



    Also found this BBB Report;



    Alternate Business Names
    Accreditation Council for Online Colleges and Schools, ACOCS, Marwin High School, Sandford High School, Virtual Education Services, Titan High School Online

    Re: Online high school diploma frauds

    This was EXACTLY what i told. ACOCS.com is a SPAM website. I spoke to Steve Nelson as they have the name on the Student Counselor's list and i was not amazed that his accent was not purely English. Though he was talking in English, but he is definitely not English.

    So be aware of the fact that when you are dealing with the websites that are accredited from www.acocs.org you are dealing with FRAUD people. Below is the header image of the site and the thing which is not funny is that they spell "ACCREDITATION" incorrect in their header.

    Besides the evident spelling mistake their login form is also not working. You type in anything and hit "Login" and nothing happens.

    No message no nothing.

    Also if you go to ed.gov site you will not see this council listed there. so there must be something going on which is very wrong.

    And if you go to bbb.org you will clearly see under their name that they have alternative business names which are as follows

    Alternate Business Names
    Accreditation Council for Online Colleges and Schools, ACOCS, Marwin High School, Sandford High School, Virtual Education Services, Titan High School Online
    So they are fooling the world with this accredition council.

    Re: Online high school diploma frauds

    If you see the following page it gives you some great speech but when you login and give test on sandford you will clearly see that they show the answers of the questions after you fail the test.

    http://www.acocs.org/sandford_certified.html

    so is this what acocs say high standard. And if you see BBB Report about ACOCS you will clearly see the name of the sandfordhighschool in their alternative business name list.

    so they are complete fraud and are fooling the world with their dirty tactics.

    Re: Online high school diploma frauds

    People sometimes ask if an online school is a legitimate way to earn a high school diploma. Is online learning a scam? Attending high school online is a great way to finish a high school diploma or GED program online. Excel High School is not a scam and is a legitimate and very credible online high school. Excel High School is a great place to earn a high school diploma or high school equivalency certificate. Excel graduates have been successful in both college and in the workplace.

    Re: Online high school diploma frauds

    Online Schooling no doubt is a great concept of distance education.
    But my point here is not that all online schools are frauds. But some of them are playing their dirty tricks to use online schools just to fool people and when people get back to the online schools they just dont refund the money and do excuses and sometime threat people to blacklist them.

    One other thing is that some of the schools are operated from asia, and they still claim that they are in united states.
    These are the schools that build their own accreditation councils and schools.

    If you see on BBB.org report for ACOCS.org you will clearly see that 1 complain's response from BBB.org was "We cannot locate the business to resolve the complain".

    and again their alternative business names have four other sites in which three sites are online schools. This is dangerous because one of their school sandfordhighschool.com is on the first page of google search results for their keywords. That make this scam even a bigger one because it is accessible to most of the people.

    If you visit their alternative business name's accreditation organization list you will see following names of the agencies

    titanhighschool.com

    New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC)
    North Central Association of Colleges and Schools (NCACS)
    Accreditation Council for Online Colleges and Schools (ACOCS)
    Northwest Association of Schools, Colleges, and Universities (NASCU)
    Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS)
    Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC)

    now if you look clearly all the schools that are in the alternative business names of the acocs.org have same agencies list. are they creating a web of fraud on the internet is the main question to be asked?

    Re: Online high school diploma frauds

    If anyone ever noticed the similarity between the accreditation councils.

    None of the links in the footer are functional.
    None of the forms are working.

    so how can an accreditation council run an online website who claim to be established in 2009. which is the same year of the schools. and still don't have a functional contact us form.

    http://caohs.org/contactus.asp
    Go there and check yourself. Fill out the form and hit "Submit" and nothing will happen.

    Re: Online high school diploma frauds

    If you go here
    http://boua.org/inner/otherInst.htm

    You will see that it lists around 9 organizations and it states that there are 4 other organizations.

    I think that the people who are running this site don't know how to count.

    None of the listed organization neither provide a list of accredited schools nor they provide any way to find which school is being accredited by them.

    also an interesting fact about boua.org is that its html clearly shows that their login form will always go to the invalid.htm page that shows a message that you have entered an invalid member id and password.
    You can clearly see the FORM tag in the HTML Source.
    Code:
    < form action="invalid.htm" >
    What are they people trying to prove? And what will they get with this fraudulent website?
