Original Complaint against Almeda University published at Scamity.com on 29-Nov-14 says, verbatim –

Reading the other reports regarding Almeda ‘attestation’; I was trying to get my education verified by a potential employer and had to contact Almeda to allow permission for them to provide that info. This is when I first head about their new ‘requirement’ for this attestation. | First call I was told the person to handle that was out and I would be called mack within 15 minutes. After better than 40 mins had passed I decided to try the online chat in the student section of their website and to let them know it was okay to allow verification. This is when I first learned of the attestation. The below is copied directly from the chat with my name redacted. | Even after this I tried calling them again and was told I needed to do this. I said that was unfair, wanting to carry out a conversation about it and instead was hung up upon, much like in the below. | After doing some searches on this attestation I find it important for doing business oveerseas and also for overseas educational facilities to have this done to be recognized in the USA. Perhaps the fact this place moved to offshore they are doing this now though mine was granted when they were in the USA. | ‘Dr’ Brown in the below also stated that my credentials could be cancelled by governement authorites without any notice, then he turns around and threatens that they will cancel them Nov. 30 unless I pay them for this. I wonder if ‘Dr’ Brown is or was a used car salesman? Provide me with the government press releases or other factual evidence this is so; don’t threaten someone. | It is a shame they have dropped so low to the point of scare tactics. If they cannot verify what was previously awarded that is a problem that will be reported elsewhere. | Dr. Alex Brown: | Have you completed the attestation process for your degree | J: what is that? | Dr. Alex Brown: | Well, Under the supervision of us federal government and online education bodies, important changes have been made towards us online education policy for all online universities who offer degrees on basis of life experience program. as a part of the legal education framework, it is now “mandatory” for all online universities operating in us to follow guidelines provided by the US State Department & us secretary of state in order to improve standard and acceptance of online credentials by getting them attested. | Dr. Alex Brown: | US State Department will now register all graduates who hold a degree from an online university to establish its legitimacy for higher recognition and make it a part of a credentials verification system internationally and locally in all 50 states. this process is known as us attestation which gets completed through following government authorities:- US Department Of State, US secretary of state & us notary public. | Dr. Alex Brown: | In this process your Degree with Almeda University is going to get reprinted and will be sent over to mention above Authorities for getting stamped and certified. After getting your Degree attested it will be verified as a traditionally earned online study based Degree, which means that if an employer or anyone else runs a background check on your credentials they will be able to verify that you went through the process of taking Online Courses with Almeda University for completing your Degree program. | J: First I have heard of this. In the meantime I do need to allow this employer to verify; I could simply scan the transcript and send though she wants to verify through you. Then we can proceed. Yes, that is correct. | Dr. Alex Brown: | Previously when you earned your Degree, it was being verified and recognized as a Life experience Degree which is no longer accepted in well over 12+ States by potential employers and educational institutions. After getting your Degree attested it will be verified as a Traditionally earned Online study based qualification and will be as good as qualification earned from a Campus based State University. | J: that is great; what needs to be done? | Dr. Alex Brown: | In order to complete this process currently University is paying 64% of the actual Fee payment because being a Mandatory requirement this process needs to be completed in earliest possible time frame. Standard Fee Payment for this process is $1250 out of which student is required to pay $499 for each degree; remaining amount gets paid by the University on students behalf for completing this process. Once this process gets completed, attested set of your credentials will be getting delivered to you within 30 days time frame through UPS at your shipping address. | Dr. Alex Brown: | After getting your Degree attested it will be verified as a Traditionally earned Online study based qualification, which means that if an employer or verification agency runs a background check on your credentials they will be able to verify that you went through the process of taking Online Courses with Almeda University for completing your Degree program. All the required paperwork such as course content, curriculum along with study material will be submitted in order to get your credentials Attested | Dr. Alex Brown: | And then you will be receiving a new degree along with official letters from the US Department Of State and US Secretary of state attached to your degree in 30-35 working days | Dr. Alex Brown: | ? | Dr. Alex Brown: | Please Note: – Being a mandatory requirement this process needs to be completed in earliest possible time frame. Failures to comply will resulting cancellation of credentials by the Government Authorities without giving any prior notification. | J: I will do some research on this. To do this, is it simply logging in and filling out paper work to get started? I did not see it on the website. | Dr. Alex Brown: | November 30th is the deadline , After that your credentials will be suspended | J: of course | Dr. Alex Brown: | Good Luck for your research | Dr. Alex Brown: | Have a great day | Chat session has been terminated by the site operator. |
