    You realize that the biggest risk is being fired and blacklisted, and that this risk doesn't go away over time.

    I work for an LBO fund that recently purchased a company. As part of the screening process, each of the company's top 13 executives received background checks. As it turned out, one of the 13 (who was a general manager of just one of the company's nine operating divisions - executive #12) employees had lied about his GPA and graduating honors (cum laude). His lie wasn't even substantial - he'd added +0.4 to his actual GPA.

    We currently own the business, and executive #12 is now unemployed and collecting nothing in severence pay after 22 years with the company, since the fact that he lied on his resume voided his employment / severence agreement.
