Axact wasn’t just selling fake degrees! | Pakistan Today

Axact wasn’t just selling fake degrees!

  • Company trains qualified locals and hires them on hefty pay packages to tender paraphrased research articles for clients
  • Axact’s Education Department steals registered courses from journals, churns out fake courses to go with American sounding fictitious colleges, professors

Apart from the alleged sale of fake diplomas and degrees through its online universities and colleges, Karachi-based IT company Axact has also been offering its services as “proxy students”, filling in for all the academic work originally assigned to students enrolled in reputed educational institutions in US, Pakistan Today has learnt.

Documents available with Pakistan Today show that Axact has been managing the academic profiles of thousands of its clients; charging them for maintaining their grades.

“If one wants to have a diploma from some accredited and recognised US online institute, no worries, just get enrolled, the remaining jobs; such as assignments, quizzes and tests, would be done by a brilliant team at Axact,” a company insider told Pakistan Today on condition of anonymity.

Investigation further reveals that one of Axact’s clients, Kathleen Barry, is enrolled with Chicago-based Bellevue University, which is accredited by The Higher Learning Commission through the US Department of Education. She is enrolled in the university courses; Egyptian Tombs and Treasures (module 2147-1) and Survey of Art Since 1400 (module 2145-1).

Barry outsourced her studies to Axact and being relieved of studying tough modules, she worked extra hours to pay Axact for those phony jobs, insiders said.

For years, Axact has been running, what educationist Moazzam Ali Shah called “unethical business of cheating universities through its educational services for the students”.

“We never know if Barry would be teaching Art in some university after getting a diploma from Bellevue University. Just imagine, what would become of those students under her,” he said.

Moreover, Alec Hu Tan, a student of the University of Phoenix, Florida is enrolled in Consumer Psychology and Research course. All his assignments and mail correspondence are done at the Axact office. Alec’s account could be accessed by logging in at ecampus.phoenix.edu with ID “alec168” and password “Buonmethuot1”, as informed by Axact insiders.

HOW AXACT WORKED?

Axact has three departments at its Karachi office– Sales, Education and Research and Development.

Research and Development is reportedly run under Umaima Jalal and Umair Haroon, who hire people on luxurious salary packages. The department has about 100 employees who are initially trained for a month to write thesis, assignments and projects for students enrolled in universities.

An insider told Pakistan Today that the training was conducted by Haroon and Saad Hasan. In these training sessions, employees were given passwords of online journals from where they copied theses and rephrased it for clients.

After the month-long training, they were given certificates of being trained as Axact Research Professionals. “The Research Department in Axact is nothing more than an intellectual and copyrights theft cell in which people make assignments, dissertations and thesis for thousands of dollars,” he added.

OUTSOURCING RESEARCH:

This department also has “portal teams” which are run under Luma Qasim Naqvi, Javeria Khalid, Ali Raza and Zain Ahmed.

This department has passwords of students from various real universities, including Phoenix University, Grand Canyon University, Walden University, Ashford University, Kaplan University Devry, Trident and Strayer, and provides services for spring, fall and summer courses for $40,000 to $100,000 per client/student.

The list of courses these teams are working on for students along with the names of the universities and account details is available with Pakistan Today.

The documents show that Javeria Khalid, who was a part of Luma Naqvi’s team, was presently working on HRM, Ethics in Decision Making, Child and Adolescent Health, Research Theory Design Method, Positive Psychology-What’s Right with Me, Cultural Diversity, Business, Sociology and Health Care, Community Health and Development, 21st Century skills: Communication and Information Literacy and Managing Strategy Global Market.

Axact recently furnished assignments of Ekta Patel from Brenau University along with Fatima, Michelle Allen, Catherine Riley, Fatima Hdir, Diana, Sadegh Robinson, Niya Lee, Daryl Whiten and April who are studying in different universities.

Likewise, ‘researcher’ Beenish Hafeez was drafting assignments for Christopher for subjects including Organizational Leadership: Doctoral Theory and Practice, Building and Leadership Creative, Strategic Management, Project Management and Managing the Global Logistic Chain.

The document also mentioned in depth that Mashaal Faseeh, who is part of Ali Raza’s portal team, was preparing courses on: ICT in Environmental Science, Finance and Health Economics, Financial Planning, Principals of Accounting II, Strategic Cost Management, Financial Management, Personal Finance, Dissertation 1, Financial Management, Project Risk Management, English Composition, Principals of Hospitality and Tourism Management and Accounting for Decision Making. Her clients are Michael (Oxford), Jayne, Mark O Keny, Ameer, Olumide, David Robinson, Ekta Patel, Abdul Salam, Angel Mousa, Andrean and Ralph Saorrono.

Likewise, Anam Kazi from the same team was presently working on Comprehensive Health Assessment, Transition from LPN to BS, Spirituality in Health Care, Environment, Capstone, Clinical Intervention in Couple and Family Social Work Practice, Essentials of Nursing Research, Inquiry and Evidence-based Practice/Health Promotion and Disease Prevention in a Diverse Community, Research Methods Health Service and Nursing Research Methods courses. The clients for the these courses are Tajinder Gill, Precious Darby, Amy Thompson, Shenella White, Adeline, Garfield, Desiree, Erika Kout, Fatima Hdir and RosallyTores.

AN ‘EDUCATIONAL’ CRIME:

A former employee Fouad Khan said, “Umaima Jalal is also the head of Education Department at Axact where she heads a team of eight girls. These girls impersonate as professors in universities set up by Axact.”

Khan added that these girls are given targets to produce more and more courses by copying online material from other courses and then run their own multiple courses keeping different American names for themselves.

“The Sales Department of Axact is also involved in this crime as they call students from around the globe to join this university which will later give them degree (convincing how the university is easier than other online universities and providing the same degree),” he said.

He added that some of the universities include Mary Grand High School, Mount Lincoln University, Nicholson University, Redding University, Walford University, Wiley University, Windham University and Brooksville University.

“Rabeel Shaikh, Abida Ali, Sumaira Shoaib, Sana Aamir, Huma Ahmed, Shiza Shahab and Sadaf Zain are some of the personnel who were especially trained to cater to CVs of clients for hundreds of dollars,” Khan claimed.

A current employee, who works in the Marketing Department, told Pakistan Today, “It is sad to see that coming from great universities– such as Javeria Khalid being from CBM and Sadaf Zain from SZABIST– these people indulge in cyber crime, blinded by a handsome pay package of Rs  60,000 in salary, a car and a cell phone.”

SELLING IT MAKES IT REAL:

Furthermore, Sales and IT departments work together for selling fake degrees, say the insiders.

An employee working in the Sales Department shared that they mostly target Middle Eastern countries. “We are kept in so much pressure by our managers to meet our million dollar targets that we quote the price for the fake degree as high as we can,” he said.

“I have sold degrees ranging from $20,000 to $50,000. We charge our clients extra for the stamps and verification from US (which is fake),” she added.

“We provide this fake degree for the professional experience they have done (and make up for some who has no professional experience). A satisfied client brings a lot of business,” she said.

“We remain in touch with our clients with American numbers which are in computer and also we have WhatsApp on these numbers which makes them think we are from America. We use fake American names and speak with an American accent to convince clients,” she said.

The Axact management could not be reached for comment in this regard.

The revelation is likely to build more pressure on Axact, as Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan on Saturday announced that the government would approach Interpol and the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) for assistance in the probe into the Axact fake degree scandal.

The minister told reporters in Islamabad that Pakistan’s Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) had found substantive evidence during initial enquiry that warranted  a more thorough probe into the affairs of the company.

Axact has meanwhile, vehemently denied the fake degree charges levelled against it by The New York Times investigative journalist Declan Walsh.

    If the paper/author has the evidence as claimed, then this must be reported to all the concerned universities/registrars offices. All the names, courses all the details must be passed with immediate effect. This is the paper’s ethical, moral and legal responsibility.

    At the least a copy of this article/weblink should be sent to all the concerned registrars.

    Being excellent does not mean being conscience. And you're agreeing that assignments were actually sent to you, after studying at lums you end up doing assignments for some other students (forgot all the lecture on plagiarism?) ? This feel sick because I am a lums graduate and reading your comment made me feel sick to my core.

  15. sana ali said:

    I have also worked in Axact’s R&D department and I am well aware of Education Mgt functions as well. These allegations clearly show a huge conspiracy against the company and the leaders working there. I personally know most of the people whose names have been mentioned here. I was lucky to have such friends and bosses – they were like a family to me. Hitting individual employees and that too with false accusations is highly condemnable.

    This is a corporate war and targetting indiviual employees, especially females, reflects low mentality of the author.

  19. Collegegrad said:

    This guy, Shoaib Ahmed Shaikh, is an idiot. He dresses like he leads a nation, but he is just a con-artist. He is a fool not to realize that all diploma mills eventually get raided by the authorities. It was only a matter of time, and now he is a disgrace. Let this be a lesson. Running a school or any business is hard work. It takes integrity and hard work to do things the right way. Doing things the right way, always pays off in the end. Scammers always lose. Men with great honor and integrity always win. Criminals always go to jail. Honest men always leave a legacy for their family. Axact has scammed by many, many, many people. Many people have been hurt by this scam. Not just the employees of axact, but all of the victims that thought they were getting real diplomas.

  20. Babar Hasan said:

    Well, any sane person can judge how well the game has been plotted by the author or the person who he claims to have interviewed or got evidence from. We all know that axact is in the lime light these days and everyone is taking advantage of this. To sell the stories, stories are being made up. Every next day we see a new allegation against Axact which has been operating since yearssss ..and suddenly when their associated company/BOL Channel announced its launch, the media realized that Axact has some illegal businesses. Media created a hype blaming the parent company for several things and everyday we see a new allegation against axact. Wow. This cheap journalism is making me sick now. Are are really educated? We are defaming our own country, intentionally or unintentionally.

    If axact is providing the HIDDEN facilities to students for their assignments and research work
    then this website is doing this openly.
    http://au.grabpapers.com/

    checkout this website. This website offers students to write assignments and research work. Is this wrong ? Why is this website running in the European countries.

    Writing the the assignments for students can be ethically wrong but this isn't illegal. No law stops you from doing this.

    • pro paki said:

      DONT CLAIM TO BE A LEADING IT FIRM then. CLEARLY specify that on your website, if you think its not unethical.

      • Noor said:

        I said this can be ethically wrong but this isn't legally wrong. Every company claims that they are best & providing the best to their customers same goes for news channels. If Exact is claiming then its just a marketing tactic nothing more than this.Don't get serious about that.

      • Noor said:

        I am not supporting Axact & neither i am related to Axact but one has to be little bit conscious while blaming someone.

        First of All one should understand that this is still a blame on Axact. This is not yet proved. What is actual game behind , you and me can't get that at this time. It would be disclosed with time.

        Govt & Media Channel Says: They are selling Fake degrees.
        Axact Owner Says ( I had listen his program with Kashif Abbasi): They are providing services to online Universities to use Axact's system as course management, student management etc etc. They are also providing services to online Universities to print and give degree to students on the behalf of University. This is just like the back office. For example IF American bank does not print its own cheque book. It would outsource its printing of cheque books to some other company around the world. The company who has the rights to print cheque book, that isn't printing fake cheques. They are doing on the behalf of American bank.

        So we should listen to both side & we can't say someone is selling fake degrees or not until and unless proven guilty.

        • pro paki said:

    AXACT was advertising on LinkedIn for these degrees. Once I had put my number and I got a call from that fake agent. The accent he had was so fake. I told the guy he has to work hard on his accent and laughed and hung up on me. Later on I confirmed this from my friend that if AXACT is doing this. He confirmed me with YES.

It is shameful for us and we all should discourage this, and support what our media and FIA is doing against this so called IT world leader.

    It is message for the world, and now all such fake universities which are thousands should be banned by CIA….

    All the employees migrating BOL must be hauled up…. as sure everyone of them, while sitting on their hunches doing nothing, very well knew as from where they were being paid so extravagantly. Why they kept Mum for so long,…?

    • #justiceforAxact said:

      this is not true. Axact is not involved in any illegal business

    To the administrators of Pakistan Today.

    I urge you to take the employ names down. As this is really the worst kind of journalism you can do.

    Heck, is this even journalism?

    The employee Fouad Khan, whose quotes and references you add. Didn't he work in the same position in R & D and do the same thing for a long period of time.

    So what makes him any better?

    This is really horrible for the families, you wouldn't wish it on yours — especially in a society like Pakistan, where its difficult enough for women to work.

    I would hope that you will do another version of this article without the employee names.

They found financer Axact and worked on it. Findidng NO fangs BOL was taken like a sitting duck and they have hit Axact n BOL hard and hit very hard

    shame on you pakistan today you hit a new low. you could have publised this report without taking any names.

  41. Muhammed A. Raoof said:

    Do not let those, ESCAPE,. who purchased the Degrees knowing these are fake. They should surrender the DEGRESS and face legal consequesces.

    Authorities must trace when and how and from where they obtaineted the DEGREES. If the got the job or benefitted by these degrees FIR must be lodged.

    Do not sympathise with the purchaser of Degrees. Have the NOT as honest person then there would not be such CRISES.

  42. #justiceforAxact said:

    its not true Mam please support Axact and not the scam

  43. Ghulam Haider said:

    Any Pakistani so called investigative journalist made any research to find out what the IT companies like the Axact in other countries are doing or offering to the student clients? Why the US Government did not react on the issue of Axact? The so called Holy Cow, NYT published a story on existence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq which proved a blatant lie but paved the way for US attack on Iraq.

  44. a true pakistani said:

    Mr fouad naseer as much as I am aware you were an employee at axact for about 4 yrs n resigned recently only…if they were involved in wrong doings where was ur conscience then?. kindly return the wealth that u have accumulated in those 4 years cause I am sure you would not be wanting to keep something that according to you is haram or of black money…n people who r commenting in favour of mr fouad I have a question someone who works for an org for 4 years and does not realize that he is doing something wrong and resigns suddenly prob because of no growth Is it right to beleive such a Person. It is ok to have a personal opinion about axact but extra information provided by the individuals like fouad and batool r an axample of rivalry within the organization

  45. ZEESHAN said:

    I think someone also mention that from IT industry – that sites like Elance.com, upwork.com and freelancer, guru also publish jobs from students which want different people do there assignments and quiz why no one sue elance and upwork, why no one ask those students? Half of Indain IT professionals doing same, and By law AXACT IS NOT FURAD FOR DOING THIS – ITS THOSE STUDENTS WHO GAVE THEM THERE ASSIGNMENT TO DO THAT. AND THOSE UNIVERSITIES WHO ALLOW STUDENTS TO DO THAT.

  46. buster said:

    i have great visual proofs for the websites they operate with. In form of source design files of several universities and online research. Anyone fancy to safely share with authorities?

  47. Hassan said:

    I don't know what's more unethical and opputunistic, Axact or Hassan Naqvi for leaking out employees and students names and their online account passwords like this.

    #justiceforAxact – And this is an example of why Pakistan is moving backward on the tracks of success. A perfectly fine organization running a completely legal business all over the world, bringing in foreign exchange while creating thousands of jobs in Pakistan, is being destroyed by a mafia who for some reason felt threatened by Axact's entry in to electronic media.

  50. a true pakistani said:

    Batool u should be shameful as everybody knows ur reality why u were thrown out of axact…u n fouad did ur best in dirtying axact’s environment with ur romance.. but this act of urs is an example stooping too low…it is worse than two timing..

  51. Sunny said:

    i am an x acatian and i have watched the whole scene in the van of Axact when going to Picnic. Battol is a girl who says that everyone is watching her and else. Their is an affair between Faoud n Batool but please dont take the names FIA should investigate batool. She is a little bit Mad girl and often blame the VP (Ibtehaj Lalaruk) of accusing her.

    • love story said:

      lol i know the affair was her private affair, but revealing the name , be it a revenge or not, take guts and anger to do so. lets see if the people with the videos come out or they decide not to go down as her… this little story of batool seems to be quite interesting amid the whole issue lol. keep updating haha.

      • Sunny said:

        Being an axactian i know that their isnt any Video. the one on the picnic is only seems by few of our group girls and this didint have the video record. But Batool goes with Foud khan daily instead of going through Office van foud drops her daily at 7 p.m. Else batool lives in a on Karsaz which is shady and dark at this time. Video never revels.

        • love story said:

          i think her fiance has the right to know abt her so called relationship ….she should tell him herself…

  52. Sofia said:

    Now wait a minute, the whole of Pakistan atleast Karachi always knew what Axact was doing even apart from the fake degrees why didn't they raise their voice before? Why suddenly play the who " hawwwww " card and sound so surprised and condemn them. Just because a media war has taken place and today they are just dragging each others reputation through the dirt so NOW suddenly the AWAAM of karachi and pakistan find fault with it? The kind of money they dish out all you " HAW HAI's " would have kept your mouths shut and worked there IF you were hired but because you either didn't make it or don't have the guts to voice your own opinions and need someone else to use as a shield and whine is PATHETIC. And no i never have nor ever would have encouraged anyone to work there. But atleast i am not a hypocrite like you guys….
