Diploma mill probed

Federal investigators have compiled a list of 9,600 names of
people in the Washington metropolitan area suspected of having
purchased fraudulent high school diplomas and college degrees,
including some who appear to work in government and the
military.


According to a Washington Post report, investigators are studying the
list for federal employees who might have purchased a diploma or
degree from an Internet-based diploma mill that operated out of
Washington state.


The list has not been made public; it was compiled during an
eight-month federal investigation in Washington state into an
international diploma operation that was run from 1999 through
2005.
