Looking to enter an online degree program to help your career or gain a new skill set? Welcome. You are about to join 5.8 million other Americans who have enrolled in an online class. Online learning goes by many names, including a virtual classroom, MOOC (massive open online course), e-learning or online course, but all offer learning convenience and flexibility. That is, as long as you’re not getting scammed. Education scams aren’t new. Degree “mills” and fake university scams (think of the 2006 movie “Accepted”) have existed since the 19th century, but learning online has made it easier for scammers to cheat you out of your education — and money.
