I have a general question about fraud. I was wondering if I could use one of those novelty diploma sites to make a cheap replica of a diploma from a real college as it's only use will be to
hang on the wall, I would not be using it to secure employment or
anything official. Wondering if it is the act of using a fake
diploma to misrepresent yourself for employment that is fraud, or
if actually having one made, just for the wall is fraud. Wondering what issue could arise from doing this, if it will never be used to tell an employer I have the actual credentials.
Would there be any investigations to check that the document hasn't been used illegally? Is ordering a fake diploma illegal, or only using it to secure employment/education and such illegal? Any advice would be great.
