Australian education scam

This thread has been widely reported in the media internationally. It is covered in tv and newspapers here in Japan. However, it may have referred to a few sections of unauthorized education agents who can provide you with falsified certificates to allow you enter into prestigious institutions or work places in Aussie. Probably this is not widely practiced in Aussie but it is reported to be on a rise. Just recently an Indian undercover reporter was bashed up for reporting on this education scam practiced by certain agents within Australia. Again this is about corruption which is widely available in any nation throughout the world. However, this should not reflect the overall education system in Australia which is one of the best in the world. In summary, media reports stated that some agents through scam are awarding falsified certificates to many international applicants. However they do not implicate any of the major institutions in Aussie.
