By "blackhat" i mean you used some not so regular ways to get hired at your current position( grant it you don't work for yourself). Any of you lie about previous jobs or criminal backgrounds? Maybe actually tried to use one of those fake degrees? My thought on the matter today: Why cant I just fake a website for a company, then use that company linked back to where i "worked" for 5 years in the field i was going after. Then link that to a fake "company number" via magic jack (where you can use an out of state number)....The company (or background agency)calls your fake company to check the resume or the agent they hired to check. It actually rings to your girlfriend who patches through to your friend (the boss). Im interested to know what you guys think works and doesnt work. What do you guys think? How far could I take this if i wanted to . Fake magazine which had wrote an article about me in that professional area of expertise ?
