Lies told on resumes

Ten tall tales told on resumes.

Some of these are caught because they are proofreading errors (in the military before conception), but what makes me really curious is the checks that employers have in place to discover if someone is lying. For example, how many employers still call references? Do you Google search a candidate to see if they have a digital footprint? Do you verify degrees? The survey doesn't say, do you regularly check to verify the accuracy of claims and if yes, how?
