JANESVILLE, Wis. (AP) -- Changes in the GED, or the General Educational Development, program are leading to some scams in Wisconsin.
The GED is an equivalent to a high school diploma. Those seeking one must successfully finish their tests by January or they will have to start over.
Test administrators say the deadline is resulting in scams where fake diplomas are offered for a fee.
Blackhawk Technical College's testing coordinator told the Janesville Gazette for a Monday story that people running the scams trick people into paying $250 to $1,300. They change their phone numbers often and often are located in other countries so they can't be caught.
GED tests will be computer-based starting next year. Also, an essay question will be added to bring the test in line with high school standards.
