RE: OT: Just how wary of this should I be? Input needed

This reminds me of an event back in College over a coding assignment (yes, it 
was COBOL).  A classmate asked me for help with his code and showed me a 
particular part in his output (green bar) that he was struggling with.  After 
looking for a bit I suddenly realized the code looked familiar.  I then flipped 
back to the header and saw it was my output, a copy I had dumped in recycle a 
few hrs back.  In short, he stole my code but still couldn't figure out the 
assignment so had me try to explain my code to him so he could submit it.

One "nefarious" use of a respectable person's resume is to erase the personal 
information & replace it with someone else's.  I've seen mine used that way in 
the past.  Person says he worked at the same company I was at for the same time 
period in the same position & I don't know them from Adam.  Bad idea on the 
recruiters side as we have not used that recruiter since.  But then they are 
busy and lots of people write very bad resume's, so why not capitalize on 
someone else's successful resume?  I mean what's the chance that the person you 
got it from will be looking at the "borrowed" one.

Just remember Murphy's Law.

That was sort of my point.  I'm not sure how a resume could be used negatively.

I'd have to make sure there was no personal info (such as address, or phone) on 
it - which is different than if I sent it directly to a company or rep that I 
trusted.

And how your resume can be used? Just ask them for the job description and let 
us know why you think you shouldn't send the resume ))

I've been contacted by a recruiter via LinkedIn about an Oracle DBA position 
that is 60% travel, full benefits, and good pay.  Says 'Assignments change 
every few months'.  The company website for the recruiter is in the Midwest I 
believe.
The recruiter uses a Yahoo account.  The company website has 2 plain HTML pages.

He wants me to send my resume.  The emails are written well, none of the usual 
earmarks of a scam that I might expect.  He's provided his phone number as well.

I'm wary of sending my resume to someone who may not be on the 'up and up' as 
I'm not sure what nefarious purposes it might be used for. (If that makes 
sense).  May be I am paranoid?

Thoughts?
