This is why you shouldn’t lie to a future employer about your salary

In case you needed more proof that it’s a bad idea to lie about your salary, here it is.

Participants on Quora — a site where users can post questions about life’s most vexing dilemmas — recently tried to help someone who said, “I lied about my current salary during an interview by 7%. Now they want pay stubs. What do I do?” Answers included “lie again” (“Say you don’t have any pay stubs”), explain that benefits and other perks make up the 7% discrepancy, say the interviewee was misinformed by a mentor to fib as a negotiating tactic or just come clean and say he or she wanted to earn more money and exaggerating a previous salary seemed harmless.
