Do you/have you ever lied about your profession or claim credentials over it?

What do you think of these kinds of people who do? Perhaps its just wishful thinking or being ambitious about those 'career' and 'profession' they claim but don't you think that they are being a threat to society, on the other hand? (eg. some who claim themselves to be engineers, doctors, etc.)

I agree, definitely they are a threat to mankind. But a bit of lying can be tolerated Everyone lies on an job interview about their profession. For example - i lied to an interviewer saying i worked for a company for an year, actually i was their for 8 months.

It is dangerous. Politicians do it that's why they are not trusted.
