They have no way of finding out your salary through your past employer.
It is illegal for your previous employeer to give that info out.
You would be surprised at the things past employers aren't allowed to tell
:)
However, I know of a few people who were asked how much they make at an
interview...
They were also asked for a pay stub to validate it.
I am assuming this is legal for the company to do, however I believe it is
rare.

That being said, I wouldn't get into the habit of lying about it :-)
