Do you know how easy it is to lie about your experience or qualifications on a CV and get away with it?
Actually it is extremely easy, simply because the people doing the interviewing are not doing their job properly.

- It might be a genuine mistake so don’t rush in
- If, after further investigation, you do find your candidate is fraudulent, withdraw any offer of employment
- Contact the Police if necessary
- If they came through a recruitment agency inform them too
