Nine suspects stood trial in a local court in Beijing last Monday for selling fake degree certificates from universities in the United States to defraud people of about 3.4 million yuan (US$540,000), writes Cao Yin for China Daily.

The suspects swindled more than 30 people across the country, including senior executives of big enterprises, by selling them fake doctoral or masters degree certificates from foreign universities between 2007 and 2010. They were charged with fraud, according to prosecutors from Beijing’s Haidian district.

According to the prosecutors, the nine suspects fabricated enrolment regulations for some US colleges, including the University of Washington, and claimed they could issue degree certificates from these schools as long as the applicants paid money and did some training.
