The Axact scandal is once again in the news with its international clients allegedly getting ‘threatening’ calls from the company. While international media has raised voice in favor of the victims, Pakistani clients have not received much attention.
According to sources, more than eleven-hundred Pakistanis had paid for online degrees backed by Axact-led universities. Similarly, BBC had also unveiled the multi-million-dollar scam where more than 3,000 British citizens purchased fake degrees from Axact.

Aamir paid the registration fee on June 18, 2006, according to the records.
Surprisingly, his wife had also applied for an online degree for Bachelor’s degree in Medicine & Surgery and Master’s in Business Administration.

In 2005, Aamir was accused of having fake BA, MA and Ph.D. degrees by a local newspaper. It was later revealed that he had purchased degrees online from Trinity College Spain. The university, however, divulged that they didn’t issue any degree to Dr. Aamir.
