Have you overstayed a Schengen Visa or know anyone who has? If so, were there consequences?

I overstayed by a couple weeks twice and they did not check it. I have a friend who stayed 1 year and had no problem.

I am not recommending it, but I work with a guy who was working at the border in Ireland and he told me they were checking everything 1time of 5.

Best of luck it you try...

If you want to escape I would try via the Balkans or Ukraine. Reply to this
