Fake universities are websites which claim to be reputable universities or part of the academic institutions. Indeed, they have no any relation with genuine universities, they are only websites created by cybercriminals. These “universities” send spam emails to huge numbers of people, internationally, trying to cheat them. Fake universities claim to be accredited by a governmental or international institute and use names similar to reputable and known universities. Physical addresses of fake universities are unknown or false and communication with them are only available by telephone number or email. Moreover, they show illustrations of their degree certificates in their websites to attract people (Hallak & Poisson, 2007).
