Liar for hire? Fake CVs flood India job market
NEW DELHI (AFP) - Managers of an IT company in New Delhi were puzzled as they sifted through a pile of CVs - as many as 30 job seekers claimed to have worked previously for the same employer.
Unwilling to take any chances, the managers approached a firm of professional sleuths that specialises in screening background information given by prospective employees.
What emerged left them stunned.
The "employer" turned out to be an owner of a dingy one-room mobile repair shop who was pretending to be an HR manager of a fake IT firm.
