The fraud prevention service CIFAS is warning students and graduates that lying on their CVs could land them in prison.

The organisation wants to spread awareness of its Internal Fraud Database, which allows member organisations to record cases of actual or attempted job application fraud - and share them with others, meaning that job applications could be jeopardised years down the line.
