30 Names Added to List of Fake Colleges

AS students apply to universities following the annual college entrance exam, a website has published a new list of 30 fake colleges.

Staff investigated tip-offs from around the country for’s latest list, said Xia Xue, founder of the website which has exposed around 400 fake institutions since 2013.

The fakes on the new list are in 12 provinces and regions including Shanghai, Beijing and Shandong.

In the past, most fake schools used names and websites resembling those of well-known universities, but 22 of the latest 30 fakes assumed the names of private institutions that provide training courses for the national adult education examination, which can also be used to seek a university degree.

“It is easy to see through the trick when they fake the names of well-known universities, but it is more difficult to identify if lesser-known institutions are faked,” said Xia.

The fakes send enrolment notices, along with a bank account number, earlier than genuine schools and ask students to send tuition fees to the account before a deadline, Xia said.

Three fakes in Guangdong, Shandong and Hunan provinces shared an IP address scammers operate multiple fake colleges.
