Resume Fraud Alert: Employment Mills?
January 23, 2009
As if employers didn’t have enough to deal with on the subject of education fraud and diploma mills, now comes an Employment Mill? The good people at Alibi Services (hyperlink intentionally withheld so as not to create any publicity) have introduced a new service to their already seedy offering. For $175, you can become an employee of one of their partner companies and they will provide verification of such employment to any one who inquires via phone, fax, email or mail. They’ll even provide business cards, a “work phone, work email address and personal secretary”.
Seems like this fraudulent service would be bad enough. Their other reason for being is to provide excuses for a variety of absences.
According to their website:
