Every year 40,000 to 45,000 students graduate and earn their PhD degrees in the US. However, the number of fake PhD degrees that are churned out by diploma mills during the same period exceeds 50,000. What this shows is that one in every two person claiming to have a PhD degree in the US has a fake degree.
