Got cheated

I was trying to apply for a position posted by Rapidigm a while ago, the position was
in Cincinnati, Ohio. I was contacted by an Indian recruiter who told me
to have a phone interview with one of their developers, who is also an
Indian. The guy asked to take a look at my SCJD source code. Since I was so
anxious about getting a job, I gave my code to him. Afterwards, they never contacted me again. I am now thinking they were conspiring to get my source code so that they could personally use it to get SCJD certificate. It was just
a trap. I was so stupid to give it to them! I have no racial bias but just trying to let you guys to be careful about these sneaky people.

I expect that Sun has a mechanism for detecting duplicate submissions in the SCJD exam or lots of people could use the same code. Also, not everyone gets the same assignment.

Can someone involved in the SCJD process comment?

I've seen many recruiters that cut you off without a word a soon as they lose interest. Maybe not a thief, just a jerk.

typical recruiter behaviour.
Responding costs time and thus money so many of them don't do it unless they must (which means unless they can use you).
All that thinking. Doesn't it hurt? What do you think about this tiny ad?
