From past one-week, BOL and Axact are in the limelight again after few years. The media group is accused of the same as before for producing fake degrees and selling them at the price of a mansion. Not just that, last year in April, Umair Hamid served as Axact’s “Assistant Vice President of International Relations.” He pled guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud, which carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison.

Main fraud allegations include: (1) Falsely represented that consumers who “enrolled” in the schools by paying tuition fees would receive online instruction and coursework. (2) Sold bogus academic “accreditations” in exchange for an additional fee. (3) Falsely represented that the schools had been certified or accredited by various educational organizations. (4) Falsely represented that the schools’ degrees were valid and accepted by employers, including in the United States.

On Saturday, Huma Amir Shah, a news anchor and former BOL employee tweeted about how BOL and Axact group stole her car, that they had given her as collateral for lacs of rupees in unpaid salary.

In her tweet, she demeans Axact saying they aren’t returning her belongings which she had in the car…
