By the Headlines

Even big names in high places have lied about their qualifications. But how much damage can a few lies really do?

Let’s take a look:

  • Jeffrey Papows, president of Lotus Development, got caught telling some pretty big lies, including inventing his Ph.D. accreditation and his military record. He wasn’t let go, however, until he got caught in a sexual discrimination case.
  • Bausch & Lomb CEO Ronald Zarrella, wasn’t fired after it was discovered that he’d falsified his resume. Instead, he left after a series of product recalls and product liability lawsuits.
  • Kenneth Lonchar lied about his degree when he was CFO of Veritas. Before he was asked to resign, Merrill Lynch downgraded the company’s credit ratings. Veritas shares dropped by up to 20 percent.

What Could Happen?

At best, you may end up with an employee who is under qualified for the job he or she was hired to perform. At worst, you may end up with an employee who is more interested in using fraud to get ahead than doing quality work. If the person you’ve failed to investigate is a potential business partner, the risks of fraud or incompetence are even greater.

No matter how good a person may look on paper or how smooth that person may talk in person, you won’t know the truth unless you do some digging. Performing your own search can be time-consuming and may not reveal the information you need to know. By hiring a private investigator, you can be sure to get the information you need to move ahead with confidence.
