Graphic Design Portfolio
i am starting a graphic design
company. I do not have a porfolio to
show clients of work that i have
done. I was wondering if anything
can happen if i make up fake
business names and make logos for
these business names to show clients
of my graphic design capabilities.

You can easily file tradenames, fictitious names or trademarks for the logos, if you want to have the names registered. The bigger problem comes from the intellectual property issues involved. If they like the logos, they'll simply take the designs and use them without paying you. Anything worth selling is worth stealing.
