I went to the store to buy an iPhone. It was cheaper than I thought it would be, so I bought it of course.

If they lie at the beginning, they would lie later.
Also be careful with the fake landlord reference. If they can't find a previous landlord's good reference, that means they had some issue with landlords.
The process of screening tenants is becoming more and more complicated, even more than job application. 1% bad tenants bring more trouble to 99% others. In future, I can imagine there would some professional services to do screen and it would be more difficult to make fake info.
Let's try to bring fairness to rental market.
