Rocheville University, which was established in 2001, traces its origins to Salem Kureshi in Karachi, Pakistan. Rocheville is accused of being a diploma mill offering illegitimate academic degrees, according to The New York Times. The university's claimed accreditations are not recognized in the United States and many jurisdictions restrict or make unlawful the use of credentials from unaccredited schools. The Better Business Bureau gave Rocheville's sister school, Belford High School, an F grade for its 135 consumer complaints accumulated over three years.
