Well, here's a fun one. A guy who was found guilty of faking his credentials to get a job as a maintenance engineer for the airline Qantas tried to get a lighter sentence by submitted four sterling references. But... it turns out that those references were faked as well (found via the Raw Feed). The guy didn't even do a particularly convincing job faking the references either. All four were formatted the same way and signed by the same hand, and one was from the president of a sports organization... that didn't even exist. You would think, in the age of the internet that people would assume that making up entire organizations wouldn't be particularly effective.
