As I approach my soapbox…
My reaction to this website is two-fold. First and foremost , I am outraged at the idea of a human being deliberately setting out to deceive another. My faith in mankind , and I stress the second half of this wood- kind, is destroyed. To pull off such a scam takes: thought, planning, organization, intelligence, determination, and sophisticated computer skills. Those same talents could (and should) have been utilized to benefit mankind.
I wish the perpetrator had put some conscious “thought” into what he/she was planning before executing any of this fraud. These same wholesome characteristics could have legitimately directed countless individuals to higher education. And they could then be proud of their accomplishments instead of the shame and disgrace this behavior will now bring them.
Secondly, my heart sighs for those who fell into this trap. As a human being myself, I feel an obligation to tell those aspiring students, I am sorry you were misled, misinformed, and misdirected. I apologize that one of my own members deceived you.
Your intentions to seek a higher education are noteworthy and I applaud your efforts. I hope this unfortunate experience will not deter you from pursuing your dreams to better yourself, your family, and mankind.
Education is all about learning, and I hope you will look at this as a learning experience in itself. I hope the disappointment, lost funds, lost time, the lack of respect shown to you as a human being, along with the injustice that was forced upon you, will not have caused irreparable harm to your spirit. If you can, you have learned a valuable lesson that you will not find in any books nor receive with any diploma.
