2 Pakistan’s Fake Degrees | 101 East
Gepubliceerd op 2 mei 2019
Students usually work for years to gain a university degree, but a network of shady online institutions is offering degrees without any study or exams.
Hundreds of thousands of people from around the world are taking up this too-good-to-be-true offer. Alarmingly, some of them then use these fake qualifications to get jobs as doctors, teachers and engineers.
101 East exposes the sales tactics used by these fictitious online universities, with alleged links to Pakistani company, Axact.
After media reports exposed how Axact’s network appeared to be profiting from bogus degrees, the company’s founder, Shoaib Ahmed Shaikh, was arrested and charged with fraud.
Police raids at the company’s headquarters in Karachi found lists of fake universities, blank degree certificates, names and phone numbers of their customers and call recordings of Axact staff trying to extract money from them.
But Shaikh insists his company is only running a call centre to render services to the fake universities.
Meanwhile, there are fears that people who have bought fake degrees are now working in professions where extensive training and knowledge is critical.
“It could be a huge disaster,” says Atta Ur Rahman, a former official of Pakistan’s Higher Education Commission.
“You have medical doctors who are practising medicine without knowing medicine. There are accountants in the field of accountancy without knowing anything about accounts and this applies across various fields.”
101 East follows the case against Axact and its founder, as it stalls in Pakistan’s courts amid accusations of witness intimidation and bribery.

Gepubliceerd op 4 apr. 2016
Het is grootste medische strafzaak ooit in Nederland: de zaak Jansen Steur. Jarenlang stelde de neuroloog die verbonden was aan het Medisch Spectrum Twente verkeerde diagnoses, vermoedelijk door zijn medicijnverslaving. Tom Zijlstra was als bestuurder van het MST betrokken bij de zaak en schreef er een boek over. “We moeten lering trekken uit deze grootste medische strafzaak ooit.”

23 Thailand’s Master Forger | 101 East
10 jan. 2020
He has created new identities for many people.
An expert at crafting fake passports, the man, known as “the Doctor”, has helped drug dealers, criminals and terrorists move freely across borders.
Thai police have called his forged passports the “best on the market”.
Now behind bars in a Thai prison, the Doctor is speaking out for the first time, revealing the secrets of his trade in this exclusive interview.
“My job could fool the immigration and any agent in the airport and pass through, no problem,” he boasts.
For years, he operated in the shadows in Thailand. International security experts say the country is a hub for transnational crime, bringing the Doctor a steady flow of criminals who want new identities.
“Even his customers didn’t know who the Doctor was. He was able to hide in Thailand for 20 years,” says Major-General Surajade Dhammadamrong. “Each person in his network didn’t know each other, making sure they never met. Criminals operating like that are very hard to track down.”
But authorities eventually closed in on him as part of a crackdown on passport forgers.
He may now be behind bars, but the Doctor is not yet ready to give up all his secrets – Thai authorities concede his true identity remains a mystery.
101 East traces the hunt for the master forger.
