Showstopper in the lurking - Certification Frauds in Hyderabad

Hi All,

My apologies for posting an off topic.

I would like to bring to the notice of all certification-aspirants about the supposed fraud and cheating going on in a few certification centres in Hyderabad.

Recently, my friend, an SCJP-aspirant was contacted by some thugs who assured certifications. They would however charge top dollar for that apart from the usual SUN fee. These people are seasoned certification-takers, I believe, capable of clearing the exam again and again. The modus operandi is quite simple impersonation. The 'other guy' will take the exam instead of the 'real guy'. This needs coordination with in the pack comprising of
1. guy who would check ( or never check) the identity,
2. 'other guy' and
3. 'real guy'.

I would appeal to all exam-takers to ignore such people as you gain no knowledge but pieces of paper. Better still to write to Sun. Can someone rightly point up to Sun Complaint Box?

I am not aware of the name of the institute (they obviously aren't letting out the name) but it is in a place called Ameerpet in Hyderabad.

Also can someone responsible tell us how Sun puts these frauds into check.

Please report it also here:

If you have any exam report from prometric, you can find this information about cheating and e-mail on last page.
