Do you believe all of the web certifications?

I go to a lot of these sites that advertise web work and they all have seals of approval and certifications from various business policing sites. Do you believe that they are all legit? How can you tell if they are in good standing and not just saying they are certified. I have learned that some sites will say they are certified, when in fact they just submitted their ticket and are waiting on approval. What do you think?

I really believe that a lot of the certifications that you see and a lot of the testimonies are false. I even read an article about it recently but do not remember the source. One thing that I do is take the title of the program and do a search along with scam. Now there might be some disgruntled person who might let of steam and say that a program is a scam but if you find a lot of such messages then take warning from them.

I will do that. Along with some other ones I am thinking of investing in.

I don't believe them, no. Anything can be faked on the internet, including the much-hyped "proof of payment". I think 99.9% of those money making schemes are fake and just make you spend money and time in a useless manner.

I have my doubts too. So it makes you wonder what to believe and not believe. I guess you truly just have to try it and see. I err on the side of caution and am a skeptic, so that helps.
