Re: I'm furious...
In all the years I have done contract work and having about six agencies, represent me at different times, I have never encountered this situation. It has always been understood that a recruiter will only submit my application to the positions I have discussed and authorized.^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
How does the recruiter even know of your availability and whether or not you agree to the work and the rate?

I call B.S. on that statement! This guy is clearly lying!
Or... maybe it is different in the U.S.? In Canada, agencies typically make around 45% of what the contractor is paid. The most outrageous agency fees was during my first contract job where the agency took 68%. I was shocked when my manager told me what they were really paying for my services! Thankfully, those crooks are out of business now.
Good luck, I hope you get the contract.
