I've come across a couple of folks in my district who I am almost sure are
MCP and MCSE imposters.

As someone who is an MCP I find this trickery unacceptable.

How can I check their status (MCP) and what do i do about it?

Does MS follow up on this sort of thing?

This really depends on what kind of position you are in, from an HR
perspective, relative to the alleged imposters.

If you are in a management position or in a position to be interviewing
these people as candidates, ask for an official transcript copy. Use the
transcript verification features to ensure that it is valid.

Have discussions with them around braindumps and how they feel about them.
They may legitimately have passed a test using agreement-violating means and
thus be bereft of the knowledge and experience that the credentials should
imply.

If they turn out to be fake, I really dont see what you can do as an
individual citizen as the only one that really would have legal standing to
do anything about them would be an employer/potential employer who could
terminate or sanction based on intentional misrepresentation or Microsoft who
could take action based on ownership of the credential, its name, associated
marks, etc.

You could always contact MCPHelp but again I really do not know exactly what
they could do in such a situation as the economic reality of the fact is that
going after individual poseurs is not financially viable from an expenditure
standpoint.
