    I was generally browsing as you do and came accross this site. Which as you will see when you visit it. It says that if you sign up with them they will do the exam for you and you will pass.

    There doesn't seem to be alot of information on how this is done i.e how they find out that you would pass it if you were to do it yourself. Seems to be abit dodgy to me.

    Any thoughts guys? Has any seen this before?

    Seems a bit dodgy is the understatement of the century in regards to this

    You know when you couldnt pass your driving test and you could 'pay' someone to take your place on the test (before the days of photo licences) well its like that really. 100% illegal im sure and if you were found out after landing a job, then you surely would be sacked, but which woulkd come first, sacked for lying on your cv about the quals you have/havent really got or the fact that you would be sussed out within the first week of working for your chosen company.

    Need i say more?????

    Wrong!!!

    While taking the exam at an authorized testing centre is legal/legitimate, a person/company sitting the exam for you is not. This is why when you sit an exam they ask you for 2 forms of ID. They, themselves, are not only breaking the rules and agreements from Microsoft, but also Prometric.

    They even contradict themselves... I strongly recommend to stay away from them, as you may find yourself decertified in the future.

    Wow! I can't see how anyone would think this practice was legal and ethical. It would be like me wanting to have a commercial pilot's license and paying a "ringer" to take and pass the exam for me. I would then be a licensed commercial pilot, without having the faintest idea how to fly a plane (keep that in mind the next time you take a flight anywhere...what if I'm in the cockpit?).

    Sorry for the ignorent sounding title "Is this legal?" didn't even think for one second that this was legal

    Point to note i was not considering using their services at all. Just wanted to know what everyone else thought about it. Even if i did get away with using their services to get my certs. i would know how i got qualified and wouldnt be able to live with that. That's not how i role. I would rather work for them so they actually mean something. Not just something on a bit of paper.

    I removed the site from my previous post. No point in corrupting any one else with their BS and corruption :D
