Will they catch me if I lie and say I have my degree?

I am applying for a job at a large computer/electronics retail chain. It's an entry level job, but some experience is required, which I genuinely have, but I am thinking of lying on my resume about having my degree. What are the odds that they will check?

I have a good amount of college credit in a totally unrelated field; I had a major depressive episode the last year of school and I left; I never finished. I'd like to just say I have the degree without explaining why I went to school for three years and didn't bring home the prize. Will they check on something like that? Once again, this is a large retail chain, and an entry level position. I realize this is dishonest, no doubt about that, but I am curious.
