DENTON (1080 KRLD) - A web site offering diplomas for just under one-thousand dollars is trying to convince people it's a real university in North Texas, but reports say it's not.

The University of Denton doesn't have much more than a web site. It's not accredited by any legitimate agency, and the Denton Record Chronicle reports the address it lists is actually a truck stop on I-35.

The newspaper also reports the supposed university does offer degrees for $999, which experts say is a sign it's a diploma mill.

A police officer in Oklahoma is facing criminal charges for trying to claim a degree from the University of Denton to justify a pay increase based on his education.
