Hi,

I am writing to you from far Kazakhstan (a country that borders with Russia). A couple of days ago I received an advertisement saying that I could get my MBA degree on-line for a price of $1,500 for the whole course.

They say that there is a campaign there for international students, so I can study with a discount of about 80%.... This sounds very advertising, but is this real? Or is this another fanthom university that will dissappear after I pay my money.

The name of The university is Kingston University. I tried to learn more about this university, but there is not much info on the web as. like they say, the University is relatevily new. Unfortunately I cannot go and do physical check as I live 9,000 km from the USA that is why I ask you for your assistance. Could someone please see the address provided below and make sure that this University really exists, accredited and really has this campaign of providing discounts to international students (by the way the name of campaign is MBA-1000).

Thank you in advance.

PS: Here is the address of the University

Neighborhoods: Bronzeville, Douglas
444 North Michigan Avenue.
Chicago, IL 60686
(312) 239-0622

It's fake. I cannot find them on any recognized accreditation boards in the U.S. The accreditation they claim is non-existent.

This is a completely fake post, and a duplicate of a previous one. Both threads should be closed and the OP banned.
