Should you buy a fake GED? You can. You can buy fake GEDs, fake degrees, fake diplomas of all kinds, but should you?

There are companies on the Internet that will sell you a fake GED diploma for less than $100. For almost another $100, they'll sell you fake score sheets, or transcripts, to go with your fake diploma.

Is this a good idea?

If you want to throw your money away, and buy some bad karma to boot, go ahead, but you will only add to the trouble in your life, not solve it.

You will be out $200, or more! You will not have the education to back up this fake diploma. You will not feel any better about your missing accomplishments. You will not fool anybody, especially an employer. And if you do fool them, it won't be for long.

If you can't perform the job you got with your fake diploma, you won't keep the job. You'll likely be shamed, and you'll be right back where you started. Oh yeah, less the money you spent for the fake diploma.

Don't be a sucker. Earn your diploma the right way, by learning.
