Rochville "University" - another chat

I had an online chat with "Affordable Degrees" who sell degrees from Rochville "University".

I wanted to know how easily one of my fake identities could get a degree. What about a teacher's aide who wanted to become a fully qualified teacher without all the bother of studying for a genuine qualification?

Rochville is a fake, in case you didn't already know. They claim on their web site that they are accredited by both the "Board of Online Universities Accreditation (BOUA)" and the "Universal Council for Online Education Accreditation (UCOEA)" but neither of these bodies are actually recognized accreditation bodies.

This is the conversation I had. It says all you need to know.
You are now chatting with 'Gary Smith'
Me: hi
Gary Smith: Hello
Gary Smith: How may I help you?
Me: can you tell me how quickly i can get a degree from rochville university?
Gary Smith: in 10 to 12 days
Me: that's wonderful
Gary Smith: which degree are you looking to obtain?
Me: i am currently a teacher's assistant and want to get a full-time teaching position
Me: so i thought education
Gary Smith: okay
Me: is that possible?
Gary Smith: would that be for Bachelor's or Master?
Me: i thought a bachelors but can i get a masters?
Gary Smith: how many years of work experience you have?
Me: about 5 years
Gary Smith: with 5 years of experience you can only pursue with Bachelor's Degree
Me: but i can get it in 12 days?
Gary Smith: Yes
Me: how much will it cost?
Gary Smith: $648
Me: must i sit exams to get the degree?
Gary Smith: No
Gary Smith: What we do is we take down your life experience, that is your working experience and your past educational qualification, convert them into credit hours, if these credit hours are equivalent to the credit hours that are require to complete your desired degree then you qualify and we award the degrees accordingly, if you are successfully evaluated we start with the registration process registering you and your documents with the university and the  Accreditation bodies and after that we make sure that the documents are shipped out to you in the next 10 working days.
Me: no exams?
Gary Smith: No
Me: any coursework?
Chat session has been terminated by the site operator.
Does anyone need any further evidence that Rochville "University" and their brother in crime "Affordable Degrees" are selling fake degrees?
