    Even thus, somebody might lie. Nothing is 100% reliable. Human make
    mistakes. Automatic checking, besides very much cheap in resources,
    realizes 100% right what it does.

That is true, but I don't think many people will tell an actual lie to
place a job ad.

Supposing they did so, the real job would conflict greatly with the
ad, in such a way that anyone applying for the job would be told about
it; and they would be quite likely to report it to us.

Using an automated system, they could easily just leave out some aspect,
fail to talk about it.
