As if employers don’t have enough issues today, a new online services company by the name of “CareerExcuse.com” is offering job seekers fake job references and work histories to assist them in finding a job.  More after the break.

The company describes itself as “the Internet’s only site committed to the development of truly customized, perfect job references” and offers different packages consisting of either a live receptionist or a voice mail service to field job reference inquiries.  Job seekers are encouraged to provide their desired career field and the company will act as a past employer in that field with a “real” business address, 800 number, and website.  Interestingly, the company’s disclaimer states that it “will not be liable or responsible for any false information that you tell CareerExcuse.com about your past employment history.”  The company also expressly disclaims any and all express or implied warranties with respect to its services and materials or products.  But the company does not just stop at fake references and work histories – it offers a wide variety of other services, including fake doctor’s notes, college degrees and transcripts, landlord references, and even funeral excuses!
