If somebody steals samples from somewhere they didn't work, checking
their references will turn that up, even if all they tell you is the
typical job title and employment dates.

If someone who didn't write their samples was sharp and creative
enough able to answer the questions I'll typically ask, they could
surely fake a writing test as well.
