A friend of mine has a GPA of 2.1. He basically photoshopped his unofficial transcript with better grades and gave himself a much higher GPA and he eventually received a Summer Internship Offer from a BB and even passed their background check.

How exactly did this happen? Apart from the obvious, he will probably suck at his job or won't be able to keep up with the workload, how do firms let something like this happen and deprive a more deserving candidate of an offer?
