Liar, liar, pants on fire? You're hired. A company in Minnesota will say just about anything you want, for the right price.

Paying someone to lie sounds like trouble. We’re not recommending it. But Timothy Green calls it business.

He runs a company called Paladin Deception Services, which for $54 a month will tell whatever you want to hear, CNN says:

Green says customers run the gamut — from cheating spouses in need of alibis to people playing hooky from work. But the real demand comes from job seekers, making up more than 60 percent of what he says are its 250 to 300 monthly clients.

Job seekers certainly seem to be the target audience of the PDS website. It offers package deals that can include:

  • Real fake phone numbers (with voicemail prompts) and email contacts
  • Your choice of male or female operator
  • Fake references
  • False verification of skills or employment dates
  • A fake boss
  • “Provision of ‘proof’,” whatever that means

The company demonstrated its services to CNN by providing a source for the story who wouldn’t have gotten a job without its help — and she was, of course, fake. CNN then found the company wasn’t registered in its state of operation, Minnesota (it’s registered in China, Green says) and that the Better Business Bureau had never heard of it.

DPS claims to avoid doing anything illegal. Its website says it won’t cover up for criminal conduct, imitate real people or businesses, or lie about people being lawyers, doctors, teachers, or government workers.

Beyond that, sounds like anything is fair game. Green told CNN his company helped one guy get into a cult by providing a reference that swore he knew all kinds of specific arcane rituals.

In case you’re not ready to stoop this low to get your next job, below is a video from our post 10 Tech Tips for Job Hunting.

Have you ever lied for work? Can you really trust a business built on lies? Share your thoughts on this bizarre company on our Facebook page.
