According to the Mail Online, US businessman Andrew Flanagan organised for friends to pose as former employers, supplying fake references, numbers and email addresses.

His allegedly dishonest behaviour was exposed when he was appointed the group general manager of strategic and business development for Myer in June this year.

A court was told that at the time, Myer sent a media release about their new employee, citing Flanagan’s impressive background in business.

Flanagan claimed to have held several ‘senior executive business positions’ including roles with international retail chain Zara and UK company Tesco.

But Myer was allegedly informed by the Spanish owners of Zara, that Flanagan had never held a position with the company.
