Here is the situation: I have been approved for a loan subject to verifying that I have either been at a part-time job for 6 months or more, or that I have a full time job. Either one with an income of at least $1200/month. The problem is I work as a tutor on campus and I don't pay taxes on my earnings (at least I haven't yet) so I don't have a 1099 etc. I have a relative that just started a business in the last month, he said he would be willing to hire me, have me fill out a W2, and pay me $750 twice (If I give it back to him) to produce two legitimate pay stubs and a truthful if temporary letter attesting to my employment. Is this illegal and can it actually be found out? I essentially would like to do it legally even if it's bending the truth ethically.
