What Martin propose is add a note exposing the possibility that people or 
companies could tell lies in their resumes or offers.  That is life. 
Everybody know it can happen.

I have checked three job sites, and neither of them include such kind of note.  
It is not needed.

When some entity add an offer, the Human Resources selection process usually 
follow the below steps:

 * The HH.RR. staff read some applications
 * The HH.RR. staff choose the best applicants
 * The HH.RR. staff get a first contact, via phone or email, etc.
 * The HH.RR. staff take a second contact, face to face. Maybe via
   video conferencing.
 * The HH.RR: staff realize some tests, etc.  (optional)
 * The HH.RR. staff fill the vacancy with the best candidates.

IMHO, It is not necessary neither convenient.

This seems a note for the distribution of the web app source code. We already 
include the AGPLv3 license with the source code.

As usual, feedback and flames are needed to improve.
