CUNY Lecturer Allegedly Sold Fake Certificates

October 2, 2017

A tenured City University of New York lecturer was accused by prosecutors of selling fake certificates for medical classes, the New York Post reported

Mamdouh Abdel-Sayed, who teaches at CUNY’s Medgar Evers College in Brooklyn, was arrested Friday. He was accused of hosting “unauthorized courses” on medical procedures which included CPR and drawing blood.

He would then allegedly sell fake Medgar Evers course certificates. The courses -- which prosecutors said were a sham, academically -- were held on campus.

He could see up to 80 years in prison if convicted on five counts, which included solicitation of bribes, wire fraud and obstruction of justice, according to The Post.
