I hate to say this - but a lot of headhunters do this. And I agree, it is
superslimy. I've even caught a few recruiters at my company trying to do this
so they could make a deal. They got a lecture from me about customer service
and life as an EX-Anitian employee.

The poster is correct - always take your original resume with you to an
interview. That way, if the headhunter edited you, the client can see they're
working with a crappy headhunter.

Although - don't be surprised if recruiters strip out your address or contact
info. We have to do this sometimes to keep new clients (who we don't know real
well) from flanking us.
