Back in June, Rossen Reports investigated a website offering fake resumes, one that will even provide references for nonexistent work experience. If somebody told you they were about to use a phony resume to get a real job, would you expose them — or keep your mouth shut?

At the Fine Grind, a coffee bar in Little Falls, New Jersey, Rossen Reports staged a social experiment with the help of actors portraying a job applicant and a prospective employer. As hidden cameras rolled, the "applicant" had a job interview witnessed by bystanders he'd told his resume was fake. The results were revealing.
