Whether or not you should use a phony diploma to score a job, is a decision you have to make for yourself. People do lie all the time at interviews, but presenting a bogus diploma is taking things up a notch. It all depends on the job, and on the background check that they conduct. To successfully use a fake diploma to land a job, you may want to back up your claim with some supporting documentation.
Probably the easiest way to back up your claims and your diploma is to use fake transcripts. You have to remember, though, that you need to use realistic looking transcripts or else you won't fool anyone. You can't simply type these up on your own and expect anyone to think they are the real deal. If you're going the extra distance of using phony documentation of any kind, and you want to succeed, you have to use the most realistic looking fakes that are available.
Know Something About the School
You may get called on your time at college if you use a fake college diploma. In addition to a realistic looking diploma, and your fake transcripts, you should at least have a cursory knowledge about the school. Know where it's located, the team name, school colors, etc...
Like anything else in life, you have to be prepared if you are using fake credentials to land a job. Supporting documentation, a prepared story and some knowledge of the school will help you out in a pinch.
