Fraud Alleged in Australian Vocational Colleges
Australia has a widening scandal over colleges issuing students with qualifications they have not earned. The Australian Federal Police have charged the owners of one college with fraud and others are being investigated. The fake qualifications were allegedly used to get the students work with the government owned "Australia Post" postal service.
