As moving to a new job is very important to most applicants I am not very surprised that there is cheating. As for Fruit Bat /\0/\ and "A decent interviewer can spot them in less than five minutes". Yes I agree but not all interviewers are that good at the job. People have managed to cheat their way past the interviewer and in to all sorts of very highly qualified jobs and then got away with it for years. If it is possible to cheat and there is some advantage to doing so then there is always some who will do so.
It's surprising what you can read in between the lines on some CV's before, during and after an interview. In a previous employment, it was part of my job to interview job applicant's. One particular interview always comes to mind. On the applicant's CV, it stated 'Strategic Assessment and Alignment Control Administration'.
When the applicant was pressed further, as to what this was, it transpired that he was in a local UK based American Football team. Needless to say, he never got the job offered, mainly due to the fact that he wanted to pursue most of his 'working' time following his football career, and not the job on offer.
