Case Name

ELIZABETH LAUBER, et al.,vs. Belford High School
Civil Action No. 09-CV-14345
District Court of the Eastern District of Michigan

Case Summary

For years, websites at and held out Belford High School as a legitimate, accredited high school. In 2012, a judgment was entered finding that Belford High School was a fraud, that it is not a real school, was never accredited and never had authority to issue high school diplomas. As a result of Plaintiffs’ lawsuit, Belford High School admitted that it has no administrators and never had any, that its supposed accrediting agencies were fake, that it has no employees and never had any, and that the names of faculty and administrators that appear on the diplomas it sold to thousands of persons around the United States were fake. This Judgment found that U.S. residents who purchased Belford High School diplomas are entitled to damages related to the amount paid for their fake diploma.

    Seems like people who paid for this should be entitled to a lot more than $249. If I were them, I would not settle with the class and would be seeking something in the 6-7 figure range.

    ADMIN – Hi Chris,

    We find it quite generous for the judge to allow a full refund to people who intentionally purchased a fake degree with the intent of deceiving others.

    • Hancock says:

      Good observation. People depended on this degree for high paying jobs and should be appropriately compensated for their losses.

      ADMIN – Hi Hancock,

      I see your point but it would be wise to depend of a stronger foundation such as studying and earning the diploma instead of paying for it.

      • Tanya says:

        If these people knew these degrees were fake then why should they be compensated for anything? That too is fraud! You can’t buy ANY degree. You have to do the school work to earn a legit one. thats common sense.

    • Chris says:

      That makes sense. I assumed the people who purchased this were deceived. If that is not the case, then I totally agree with you.

    • Wilford Raney says:

      Fantastic response admin!❤️❤️❤️
