    A local "doctor" who was foreign was fired from his position as medical examiner in our city. Then I was reading an article about a man whose brother saw a foreign doctor and he died immediately afterwards. I then read that a fake "doctor" operated on a man in Florida and he became paralyzed. A family member saw an Indian dentist and she destroyed several teeth! I caught a foreign doctor charging our insurance for medical procedures he never performed. So I looked it up and read that there are thought to be at least 10,000 foreigners who came to America using fake medical degrees and I realized that America has become like the wild west.

    Then yesterday a family member had a customer scammed out of $10,000 by a foreigner acting like a banking institution.

    This is a warning to be careful who you see and do business with. America has become unsafe. We no longer are protected.

    How can America be safe when it does not have any control over its borders?

    Exactly. It's just insane what is happening. It's actually worse than most people know - I know someone who works in a hospital and they're coming in with TB. Another thing sparked my post - a family member had a client who was ripped off for $10,000 by an Indian. They are the new people breaking through our borders - people from all over. It's really unsafe. I guess they come here and have to find a way to get money so they scam. We were almost scammed by an Indian who posted a camper on Craig's List. Lucky we're suspicious - we checked him out and found he was a scammer. Try getting someone to follow through to arrest them and it's hard. I woke up in the hospital and caught a woman wearing a burka trying to steal my wallet. I told my husband and he warned me not to say anything because it might be politically incorrect to state she was wearing a burka. This is what we've been reduced to: we can't report a crime lest we be labeled a racist. It's just insane.

    But the article said that those trained in overseas medical schools are risky as they're plagued by cheating. Do you really want a doctor working on you who cheated his way through medical school? What's worse are those who aren't doctors at all - they come here using fake medical degrees. America has truly become like the wild west.

    A point to make though is that these fake "doctors" are coming in on H1b visas - they're not breaking into the country. So why isn't DHS checking these fake doctors out? That's why I thought I'd better warn others before they were victimized. All we can do is protect ourselves now - we can't rely on government to check their credentials.

    I hope you've complained to your legislators about our weak borders. I have but they don't even answer me anymore - I guess they only answer fellow Democrats.

    We need to pray for this country. We're in a free fall in every respect of the word.

    What about all the doctors who happen to be from other countries and are good and reliable - don't tell me, they all corrupt and unreliable - have you actually weighed it up against all the American doctors who make mistakes and exploit people, pretty sure there will be some . Reality, there are good and bad doctors.

    Of course there are legitimate foreign doctors but the ones I was warning about were those who came here using fake medical degrees. If you look it up you'll see that it's very easy overseas to get fake documents. And so many people are clamoring to get to America that they're posing as doctors. American doctors can't fake their degrees as easily as overseas doctors can. Wouldn't you rather know that the doctor you see may not really be a doctor than not know it before they operate?

    There's an article in Reader's Digest saying they can buy degrees for 99$. These days you have to be like a detective and check out everyone you trust. It's never going to go back to trusting and respecting people according to their station in life. SMH

    Deception everywhere. Sadly.

    Sometimes you state the obvious - Can you remember that I live in the UK.
    You seem to think that people are not aware of these facts , the issue is that often you have to trust who you are seeing, there is no way of knowing ' who ' is fake- to be honest over here you are limited, you get referred by your GP. To date I have never had a bad doctor with any of the ops I have had.
    I have been very fortunate.

    That's really frightening. I read there are an estimated 10,000 fake doctors practicing but I think it's much higher. When I caught the foreign doctor charging for procedures he didn't do I looked on our states medical disciplinary board and was shocked that it was list after list of foreign names. You do have to be a detective - I get the feeling like we're living in the wild west.

    I myself wasn't aware of it so I'm assuming that there are others who may not have heard it. I know you're in the UK and I don't know if you experience similar problems.
