The FraudSCAN database is a tool that collects the scanned copies of fraudulent qualifications and qualifications issued by Diploma Mills received by the ENIC-NARIC centres partners of the projects FraudSCAN and FraudS+.
The database provides credential evaluators with a useful tool to carry out assessments and to prevent the circulation and the use of fraudulent qualifications, building on the expertise and experience of colleagues from ENIC-NARIC centres. The database is accessible to staff of the ENIC-NARIC centres only.

The FraudSCAN database has been developed in the framework of two different projects, co-Funded by the European Commission in the framework of the Erasmus+ programme - Action 3 (Support for Policy Reform), both conceptualized and coordinated by CIMEA (Italy):
