My friend has just bought himself a fake degree for 2000BD. I didn’t know whether to congratulate him or give him a slap in the face, as the thought of the years I’m spending gruelling through university flashed passed. Doesn’t he have a conscience? I mean we can all make up a gleaming CV, we can even exaggerate our credentials to the nth degree yet would we lie? Would you pay 2000BD for a lie? Ok this is just a fake degree. But it incensed me. Apparantly you pay 1000BD upfront and once it is authenticated by the Ministry of Education you pay the other 1000BD. A degree from which university you may ask, a university in India!!!! I mean if a fake Indian degree costs that much (no offence) then how much would a fake degree from Harvard cost??
He'll get away with it. He'll get a job based on it, he'll pay back the 2000BD in a few months. No one would ever know.
