Fake Degree Certificate Discovered by Verifile

This week we have identified a fake degree certificate. A candidate going to work for one of our banking clients claimed to have a degree. We sent the certificate to the university which confirmed that the certificate itself was fake and that they had no records of the candidate having ever completed a degree at their university.

Interestingly the same candidate also claimed to have a salary almost double what they actually had in a previous employment. This candidate has been working for a very well-known high street bank (which is not a clients of ours!) for the last 2 years.
