Resume Fraud

Here's a fantastic resource for Certified Fraud Examiners. We've been using the Student Clearinghouse for years. It's a fee per search or a subscription service that verifies academic achievement. Say you get a resume that claims the person earned a bachelor of science degree in economics from the University of Mississippi. The resume is clean and well written and doesn't beg further inspection. A quick query to the Student Clearinghouse can verify if the person in question actually finished their degree or just attended the university but never matriculated. I am continually surprised at the number of people who flat out lie about their education. It's so very easy to verify. Oh well...if you find yourself in need of verifying educational qualifications, check out the Student Clearinghouse.
