Thank you for the question. It is my pleasure to help you with this today. Please bear with me if I ask for more information.
It is very difficult to answer hypothetical questions.
It is potentially attempted or actual fraud (criminal offence )although it depends what kind of loss anyone would suffer or has suffered as a result of the incorrect reference as to whether it is worth pursuing.
If an agent failed to carry out reference checks correctly, the agent may be in breach of contract.
