SEOUL, November 11. /TASS/. In South Korea a 40-year-old man has been sentenced to eight months in jail with two-year stay of execution and 120 hours of community service for having falsified his CV while getting a job.
He had included fake information in his resume, claiming to have worked at the Korean Trade and Investment Promotion Corporation (KOTRA) for 3 years. He also included the official logo of KOTRA.
As it turned out later, he didn’t hold any position in the agency.
In addition to fake experience, the accused provided false data on his income from previous work, the court reported.
A couple of years ago when applying for a job he indicated to have earned 59 million won ($54 thousand) a month being on his former position.
As a result the South Korean got a well-paid job where he was even paid monthly allowance of 26 million won ($23,7 thousand). The court stated that the fraudster is obliged to pay 9 million won ($8,2 thousand) to the employer.
