PRC selling Fake certificates of MDIS

SINGAPORE: Fake certificates from well known private schools in Singapore are being sold online with some going for as much as S$10,000.

Sellers also claim to be able to provide supporting documents such as transcripts with good grades.

One Chinese internet forum claims to help students who fear they might not graduate and the advertisements posted on the forum said they can provide certificates of good grades from several well-known local private schools.

A MediaCorp reporter met up with one of the sellers, who produced several certificates from Management Development Institute of Singapore (MDIS) and its university partners on the spot.

The seller said he is able to provide certificates for any course, and added that the most popular are for business management or tourism.

He said some students have found jobs using these certificates.

Human resource firms said a fake certificate is not that difficult to detect as long as the hirer is diligent in his checks.

People Search's marketing manager Eunice Chia-Lim, said: "Usually, we will verify that the resume or CV is accurate in saying which degree the candidate did obtain. We will verify it by sighting or looking at the original degree. We really cannot guarantee that the degree is real, but if the employer has any doubts, what we will do is that we'd recommend a background check."

When contacted, MDIS said it is not aware that fake certificates from its school are being sold.

It added that it is currently doing checks and will report any findings to the Police.

The Council for Private Education said it will look into this issue and see if it needs to take any action.


i believe there are more that these

Many already gotten PR.

And, I'm am not commenting based on hearsay on forums.

I can easily point to a few person who used fake documents and already gotten PR. Apparently.. ICA does not check all applications(?).

There is this place all the cert is fake one.. (I heard)

Believe or not is up to you.

Whether to whistle blow.. is another issue.. there is too many of them already.

If ICA do background checks for the applications from 1995 to 2005.. I believe (just my personal guess w/o basis), easily can get mebbe ~20% (?) or more of false declaration in the applications from a particular country. It's whether they want to only. It is not isolated few, definitely.

Many of the people whom I am aware of used fake educational certificates to apply PR.

disclaimer: It is my personal belief that what I typed is not false. But if needed, I will gladly remove the comment.. Please do not sue me.....

I remember some years back, a PRC got a fake degree and was teaching in a secondary sch before she got caught.
I also believe a lot of them are here with fake degree, and many have got PR or citizenship now.

I recall some one in my ex company escorted out by police. Apparently he got in using forged credentials. Anyone wants black mark can try, but there is an industry making good money in background checks.

:laugh: :laugh:
I know of cases whereby employees lied about their past employment history cos it happened to one of my ex-colleagues. She was found out cos she lied to her new employer but so happened that somebody from our company knew somebody there and asked about her. :sick: :spank: This is what I know personally but I will not identify the person and will gladly remove the comment.. Pls don't sue me also... :rotflmao: :rotflmao:
