Contact information:
EDjoiners, Orlando University
United States
Edjoiners and Orlando University are one. The Edjoiners recruitment agency calls you and tells you that you need to get a MBA through matching your experience. They recommend you to Orlando Univ and they will ask you to pay 499$.
I check with them and asked for evidence but nothing is there. Dont be amazed if they have a website, as it is nonsense.

Be safe guys.

I actually applied for one of their jobs, which, thinking back, was quite general. So a guy called me and said that my educational level was not enough (I have two Masters degrees !!!) for their clients and therefore I MUST get a PhD degree from Orlando University. He added that, given my experience and educational background, I am eligible to get a PhD degree in a few weeks. (Oh you fools who spend years trying to get it. Look! I am getting it in a few weeks!) And it will cost a few hundreds of dollars. No big deal!
Edjoiners is a SCAM. Do not pay them any money!!! In-a-few-weeks-PhD or MBA is a nonsense.
I just wonder what would that guy have told me I had already got a PhD?

God! Thank you so much! I just recieved a call from Oldando uni. I was wondering why in earth would they give me a PhD so easily! In my country we have a system where I can access all of the " real" universities. So I checked Orlando uni out and Nothing was there.

Actually, I've received the same call from EDjoiners telling me that i needed an MBA to qualify for one of their vacancies and offered it to me for free from Orlando University. They're still calling me now to get me a job, I'm lost..what else do they need from me if they're a scam?!

This Ed Joiners and Orlando University 100% SCAM...I always thought christian religion is good no doubt but some arrogant christians are there especially in USA who will trap you and RIP OFF your 499$

I've had a call from EDjoiners telling me the same story, I did not have enough educational qualification for some of the jobs offered by their clients. I have a first class masters degree from the London School of Economics!!!

They confirmed that I needed a PhD because a Masters is just not enough! Wonder what the guys at LSE will have to say about their Masters Degree being no match to a PhD from Orlando University!

I have since received emails and calls from a guy called Jay Williams from Orlando University giving me details of the graduation pack and seeking my credit card details to process the admin fee of $499! Infact he's upped his offer to $2499 to get the degree attested and legalised by US Department of Distance Learning and also endorsed by the UAE embassy in the USA to prove this is authentic!

If you want to have some fun, log on to their website and start a chat with them... Guaranteed amusement! Just dont pay them anything!

Thank you Google... :-)

I just got a phone call from EdJoiners too. At first I was surprised to get a phone call from the US at 10.30 GMT (5.30am EST !).
Then I realized they called me only 5 minutes after I applied for a job.
I don't know about night shifts for recruitment agencies, but this was impressive !! :-D
I got 2 emails from "Mark Taylor", but I got even more suspicious when I saw "mtaylor@edjoiners.com via mail5.us4.mandrillapp.com"

I still have to receive anything from the "University" though... But I guess this will finish in the recycle bin. :-)
Thanks everyone for the feedbacks. Many people (including myself) saved $500 only by reading this page. ;-)

Orlando called me within minutes after talking to Edjoiners...
Edjoiners said 2000$ for the MBA and email from Orlando University says 9000$!!! MBA in 2-3 days!!! Impossible, isn't.
Orlando is pursuing me to take up this scholarship. Good, I checked on google before submitting or paying anything.

I also received a similar call and that guy told me that I was short on qualifications. I got an email from Orlando University today. Now I know exactly what to do with that email. Mark as junk. :)

The same happened to me they said that they offered me the job with 4500 $$ salary per month along with some other incentives including pick and drop, black berry smart phone, laptop and medical insurance.
and he insist to take the master degree from orlando by paying 499$$ although i have contacted orlando via live chat and she said its normal cost for the master prog. is 12000$ and for Edjoiners is 499$ in few days ?how does it comes ?
and they said the fees is refundable and when i asked him gave me a proof of the person that you hired via your company he didn't how does it come the master degree in the orlando uni. with 60 credit hours with fees 12000 $ come into few days with fees 499$ ?
