  • I've never heard of it, but I'm sure people do it. Why would you, though? I've never had to show my diploma to anyone. And I've worked a lot of places. I guess a govt job might ask for it, but if she's buying a fake diploma she's probably not working for the govt.

  • I'm not sure if it's illegal, it probably is. But she'll end up getting caught and at the very least get fired from a job for lying on her application. Why can't she just go get her GED?? My lil brother did that and passed with a high score without even studying.

  • It is illegal if she submits it as a valid document. People do it though. I wouldn't recommend it. Getting the GED would be a lot safer.

  • oh wow... fake id, fake diploma... same basic concept. only a fake diploma is a waste of paper. Get her some info on getting her ged in your area, it will benefit her in the long run and I don't think it takes that long to complete. Plus tell her when shes done, she can have grad party. She'll do it.
