The New York Times, which unearthed the global fake degree empire run by Axact from Karachi, is unremitting in coming up with follow-up revelations.
In its latest report, the Times said that an American married couple, both members of the US military serving in Iraq, emailed Axact in 2009 to say that they faced court martial for having presented academic credentials bought from a university run by Axact.
NYT, citing two former Axact officials, said “the couple requested an accreditation certificate from the university to help defend themselves, said Ahmed [one of the employees], a former sales agent who asked that his last name not be used. An Axact manager instructed subordinates to block the couple’s calls, he said.”
Investigators on Wednesday arrested the head of the Axact, Shoaib Ahmed Shaikh accused of running a global fake degree empire and conducted fresh raids at its Karachi headquarters where they discovered thousands of blank diplomas.
