The rising popularity and increasing adoption of cryptocurrencies has opened a lot of new study venues. Cryptocurrency-related courses are popping up in universities all over the world. And, as usual, there are people who try to profit from it.
In Malaysia fake certificates of degree as a “Certified Crypto Asset Consultant” has been sighted. It's especially irritating for the Central Bank of Malaysia (BNM), because their stamps and logo, alongside ones from University of Malaysia, are on these fake degree papers.
Apparently, these certificates has been used for quite a while to fool businesses and employers, who are looking for specialists in field of digital asset investments.
“BNM does not recognise these certificate holders who use such documentation in offering consultation services. Members of the public are advised to verify the validity of any certification programme before registering”, said the representative of Central Bank of Malaysia.
The bank reminds everyone, who has been presented with aforementioned certificates, that it's important to verify the authenticity of the documents, before agreeing on services of such specialists.
