wow, i guess if you want to do a forgery that's your business but bragging about it on facebook? baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaad idea. don't brag about lying to your employer (with your real name attached, to people you know, and what are your privacy settings on facebook, i wonder?) is like rule #2 of the internet after don't brag about crimes you did. you do know that prospective employers often look at candidates' social media accounts, right?

i can't count how many people at my work have gotten caught for various things (faking a workplace injury, taking fmla for unauthorized reasons, etc) because they posted incriminating things on facebook. and that wasn't even them bragging about it, it was just them posting pictures of them doing things that didn't fit with what they told the boss. and it was their "friends" on there who brought it to the manager's attention.

I went to a interview a few weeks ago and it went really good until he asked me how much I currently made.. I answered that I made 60k which is a fair salary for my current position at this moment.

Three days later they email me with a offer of 62k.. great! well just until they asked me for pay stubs as corporate office need to be substantiated to my offer.

Yes, I shouldn't have lied.. too bad. But again, am I interested in working for a company asking me for paystubs? Should I confess or refuse to show stubs?

Tell them the figure you gave them included bonuses and the dollar equivalent of "perks" such as a company car, expense account, educational reimbursement, etc. Which IS considered part of the salary, even though it is not paid on the paycheck.
