I have heard of people lying about getting degrees and holding certifications. I understand there are even companies who will provide fake references for you.
Why does this not surprise me? One can buy everything from a high school book report to a doctoral dissertation, so why not a reference?

So sad.
Didn't this just happen with the former CEO of Yahoo? And wasn't he ousted because of it?
Yeah, I remember that. Although in Thompson's case, he never submitted a resume and it's not clear how the bogus computer science degree wound up in his bio.

Here is an interesting article about it.
