    It seems to me that no one is very prepared for this or developed a proper system so these people fall through the cracks, they can work the system because its ill equipped to deal with malfeasance in a culture that hopes it doesn't exist.
    There are solutions, from universal background checks to their professional institution revoking or putting on hold their credentials, to a unified database that institutions lookup candidates on to many other possible ideas that can be developed and implemented.
    That privacy crap is a load of garbage, you commit fraud you should not be able to hide behind privacy. If its unproven or still under investigation then it can be mentioned that they are under investigation (with a few buzzwords or just under investigation) but a workable procedure for these cases is very achievable

    Yeah right, and alternative facts come with a disclaimer that they are lies... :emoji_face_palm:
