Friend and I started a business. He mismanaged and was forced out by the investors. Turns out he was in the middle of mortgaging his house, and now he wants me to lie to the mortgage company and say he is still employed with my company.
What are the legal ramifications of this were I to lie for him? I'm not planning on doing it anyway, but I want to have a more concrete reason than "because it's wrong" since I've tried that and he doesn't seem to grok that. Yes, I know that should be enough, and there's enough there for a separate askmefi post.
This is in NY if that matters.
