A SYNDICATE run by Chinese nationals is selling fake degree certificates from three Singapore universities at between RM720 and RM9,600 via the Internet, reported China Press.

It added that the certificates are printed in Johor Baru.

China students of the National University of Singapore, Nanyang Polytechnic and Singapore Manage-ment University who fared badly in their examinations are said to have bought the certificates.

The newspaper highlighted an agent telling an undercover reporter that he could print certificates for graduate and post-graduate degrees, charging a 20% deposit and promising delivery in two weeks.

“Most of those who buy the certificates are from China as they cannot graduate but need to show proof to their parents,” said the agent.
