(ANSA) – GENOA, MAR 25 – Italian police on Thursday cited 22
people over a suspected scam in which Genoa university students
allegedly paid lecturers to get them through exams and write
their theses.
    The alleged scam took place at the university’s business
economics faculty, police said.
    Students passed exams with the help of external professors,
police said.
    They also paid lecturers 600 euros per thesis, police said.
    The probe, dubbed ‘110 e frode’, a play on the maximum grade a
student can get and the Italian word for fraud, was carried out
by finance police and instigated by suspicions on the part of
university staff.
    During exams, police said, external teachers received copies of
the questions in their homes via WhatsApp and replied with the
answers.
    Police swooped on the home of a teacher during an accountancy
exam and seized his smartphone, judicial sources said. (ANSA).
