Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
It is illegal to make or fabricate ADP pay stubs for the purposes of gaining an apartment or anything else, it is considered forgery, since you are using them to gain an advantage. So, if it is discovered that you fabricated these pay stubs ever, you could be actually arrested and charged with forgery and you should not do anything that is going to possibly get you in trouble, because the landlords generally check employment with the employer, not just look at pay stubs and it is very easy for you to be discovered.
