  • Beware of bogus GEDs

    You've seen the late night TV commercials - lose weight fast ... become a millionaire overnight ... take this pill and become a super stud.

    Quick fixes - they never seem to really work, do they?

    Dennis Radice, a professor at Central Florida Community College-Levy Center, says the same applies for GEDs.

    He's noticed a recent wave of locals paying hundreds of dollars for online GEDs.

    The people who did it said it's a quick and easy way to get that all-important piece of paper.

    Radice says those pieces of paper are worthless.
