This criminal is also fresh in the minds of people, since it hasn’t been long that his name made headlines all over the world. Shoaib Ahmed Sheikh is the founder of the diploma mill company Axact, the same company that had been in the news for awarding fake degrees. On May 17th 2015, The New York Times published an in-depth report exposing the fake degree business of Axact, which eventually led to Sheikh’s arrest on 17th may and the sealing of Axact on 28th May.
Sheikh was given bail prior to his conviction. However, on 26th May 2015 he was arrested by FIA again. On 26th September last year, he was sentenced to seven years in prison.
