Help requested for verification of a story

I came across a person (from Mumbai) who claims to have served as software consultant (working on miscellaneous projects) to many companies before the person got the green card. Now this person is still working as consultant (as a permanent resident) to some software company that is sub-contracting work from federal govt.

The person started job first in CA as H-1B (San Mateo), eventually moved to east coast in Philly area (as H-1B), got laid off and continued in Canada as consultant for a while, before eventually making it in DC area where the person is working now.

The person has been in and out of country since last 8 years, and has GC since last 3 years or so.

Pretty much everybody on this forum is software expert and most likely immigrant in USA (with varying status)...so a plea of help to all gurus/honchos....does the story seem to make sense? In particular, could a person stand to get GC by being a job skipping consultant?

I have hunch that there might be some fraud here...btw, I am considering a business proposition with this person...but not committed yet.

Yes.. He could have been working for a body shop that filed his GC and been working on contract assignments all over the place while waiting for his GC to come thru.

Well, that's a start. I think there are a few background check agencies even in US where they do the check often. Maybe for a small fee, he can get that done.

Women tend to be more honest on paper and phone but get away with lies if you were to meet. Men are easy to tell face to face. Meet him in person over informal lunch or something ... you are sure to catch him.
