A Disaster Waiting to Happen

This is an interesting site about fake qualifications. This is a subject dear to our heart on CassidySlangScam because Cassidy was not only a fake linguist but also a fake academic who somehow became a professor in spite of flunking his BA at Cornell in 1965 and never acquiring any other qualifications.
