Gig is up, mate. Turn yourself in while you still can before they subpoena the NSA phone records proving you cheated.

You should be prepared... A cavity search may be necessary

Fraud is a felony, too. After Maryland v. King the government doesn't even need a warrant to take your blood. If you live in California your DNA will be in the database for the rest of your life now.

Yes. My friend went from a 153 to 170. They made her retake the exam while being watched. I believe the margin of error is 3. Otherwise, they invalidate your score. They contact you ahead of time. It's not too long of a process. I believe they sort it out within a week or two.

That's not necessarily because of the increase itself. Everyone in the upper 2 percentiles gets audited like that, regardless of any previous scores. I think sometimes a 170 doesn't qualify as 98th percentile, but often it does, so that's most likely the primary reason she had to retake under armed guard.

Sorry. Did an edit. As I submitted it, I thought it was too mean.
