Would You Fake a Reference to Get a Job? [UPDATE]

This seems incredibly risky to me . . . like, if you get caught, it’s ALL OVER. . . but if you’re desperate enough or sketchy enough, it might appeal to you.

It’s a website called CareerExcuse.com and they’ll provide you with a FAKE REFERENCE for a job or apartment search.  You get an 800 number to a fake company, the HR rep or landlord can call, and they’ll give you a glowing reference.

Their packages start at $85 and go up from there.  For more money you can get a unique 800 number, pick the name of their fake company, and make sure a live receptionist answers the call.  Via (CareerExcuse.com)
