MCP Imposters

Discussion in 'MCSE' started by =?Utf-8?B?ZWxkZXJiZXJyeQ==?=, Apr 26, 2007.

  1. 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?

  2. 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.
