….This was a very high-level hire, the candidate came from a prestigious company. We were really excited to get him. The reference process went swimmingly. The Checkster forms were returned quickly, and the ratings were excellent. But the system flagged one of the referrers as possibly fraudulent. Nakao telephoned the reference, who said he never received the form. This revealed what was obviously a very serious character flaw.
