I have noticed a significant increase recently in people on social media and other websites offering fake IELTS certificates (also known as IELTS Test Report Forms). These are scammers:
Beware Fake Certificates!
Luckily these offers are pretty easy to spot:
They often guarantee you a high band score (no one can guarantee you that!).
They claim you will receive a ‘verified IELTS certificate’ without even taking the test (like winning the lottery without buying a ticket!).
They suggest they have insider contacts within British Council or IDP to help you (this is just bullshit).
