OLWA University - another fake university

Yet another cloned fake university, this time calling itself "OLWA University. It claims accreditation from the "Global Accreditation Council for Online Academia" which, you've guessed, isn't a recognized accreditation body.

They claim to have existed, entirely online, for 17 years:
"Me: hi
Sam Clark: How may I help you?
Me: can you tell me about OLWA university? i've not heard of it before
Sam Clark: What do you want to know?
Me: does it have a campus or is it just online?
Sam Clark: Online
Me: how long has it existed?
Sam Clark: 17 years
Me: it's always been online at
Sam Clark: Yes
Me: so why was the domain only registered on 26 May 2010?
Chat session has been terminated by the site operator."
So they lie. The domain "" was only registered 2 years ago:
Registered through: Go Daddy
Created on: 26-May-10
Expires on: 26-May-12
Last Updated on: 19-May-11
Another fake to add to the list!

Yep the same with me they contacted me as well, but if they are fake, why they do they still have a web site and scamming people, why the Authorities do not do anything about it.
I honestly got suspicious about them, they even offered a discount if I pay right away.
