Fake Websites Offering GEDs
A national education group is worried Kentucky residents may be purchasing fake GED diplomas online. The Council on Post Secondary Education released a consumer alert today warning Kentuckians of websites offering the diplomas for a fee with no required test. The Council on Post Secondary Education's Sue Patrick says the fake websites take advantage of peoples’ best intentions…
"They turn over their money, they turn over their hope and they don’t get a GED that is recognized as an official test credential."
Patrick adds at present the state does not offer the GED test online, however each of the 120 counties in the Commonwealth offer testing sites at Adult Education Centers.
