ND-Center.com Reviews Introduction
ND-Center first came to our attention on another fake diploma review site called “diploma one”, which highly praised them! We expected the diploma from ND-Center to be at the top of our list. However, the disappointing reality couldn’t have been further from the truth! Our ND Center Review was quite the adventure! At first, it was a major pain in the butt just trying to get an order to go through. My first few tries were completely ignored and on another I eventually received an email claiming they were not only to busy to make any documents, they were also unable to make the school I was requesting. Needless to say, I was totally bummed out – but not ready to give up just yet. Finally, in a last-ditch effort to at least get something to review, I made up a fake name and asked for a completely different school. Randomly, and in complete contradiction to their previous email, we received a reply within ten minutes saying the order went through and could ship out right away. What the hell? I guess they just didn’t like my name? The payment (Western Union to a person in London) and shipping methods (No tracking number; shipped from Sri Lanka) were equally shady and left me wondering if I was ever going to receive anything at all. In the end I did receive the item, but what arrived was a complete let down!
This area is sort of difficult to rate considering it almost completely absent from their site. There is no phone number or online chat, just an email contact form. All of the email correspondence appears to be pre-written messages with no personal touch whatsoever. I sent one email asking what would be printed on the outside of the package but it was ignored. I guess they didn’t have a canned message to handle that question.
Shipping and Processing
As I mentioned in the introduction, the payment process seemed a bit sketchy. The Western Union money transfer was sent directly to a person in London and not to a business name (which I expected). Immediately, my instincts were screaming “scam!” But to give credit where it’s due, they did get eventually get the package to me.
Shipping took about a week. Overall, between the concerns over the payment method and lack of tracking information, it was definitely pessimistic week of waiting. The package itself was very flimsy. For a $250 item made of paper, I expected there to be some kind of sturdy envelope. The paper the diploma was printed on was thicker than the package containing it. Opening it was definitely frustrating. For some reason they had this thing stuck inside an envelope, inside another envelope, inside a plastic sheet – each one taped up like crazy. However, with a bit of patience and concentration I was able to get through all the mess and get the diploma out undamaged.
Overall the quality, compared to the competition, was quite bad. The printing quality was poor and the lettering appeared faded; as if the black ink cartridge was low on a home deskjet printer. Overall, I would have to say the seal was the worst part. It was blurry and the edges were choppy like they just copy-pasted a low resolution image onto the diploma. Also, Nd-Center.com was the only site to not use some type of gold seal, which we found to look the most appealing and realistic.
There were, however, no misspelled words and all of my information was printed correctly. The diploma paper itself was pretty much what we expected, so I had no complaints there. Also, we thought the printed novelty signatures looked pretty good.
At $250.00 ND-Center was the second priciest out of all the diploma companies we reviewed. It cost $130.00 more than the cheapest on the list, Diploma Xpress, and was similar in quality – and that is being nice. I’m not sure where that extra $130.00 went. Maybe it was used to cover the shipping costs from Sri Lanka. They were a true ND Center Ripoff!
- 3 extra copies of the diploma
- No misspelled words or grammar errors
- The printed novelty signatures looked pretty good
- Poor quality seal (The seal was very faded! The real diploma, from our research, should be a bold burgundy w/ shiny gold lettering).
- While the three copies were a plus, they were printed on two different kinds of paper which made me lose confidence in their knowledge of what looks more realistic
- Again, poor overall ink quality
- Flimsy packaging and very hard to open
- Limited support options and poor overall customer service
FINAL THOUGHTS ON ND-CENTER!
I think a lot of people see ND-Center and the site looks very simple and homemade and people get the sense that it’s underground, secretive and somehow special. As you can see from the photos, it’s hardly that! If you want to save your money, invest it wisely in a company like Phony Diploma, Next Day Diplomas, or Diploma Company for that matter! We hope you appreciate the money we wasted here for you to learn a lesson! haha
