You're not just doing the company a disservice by lying on a resume, you're
getting yourself in over your head. I've had a couple of experiences with
co-workers who I'm pretty sure exaggerated their qualifications slightly,
and it was difficult watching them struggle with things they should have
known how to do.

+1 for all the suggestions to drop the recruiter like a hot potato. If
they're pushing their clients to lie to get positions, you have to wonder
what other ethics violations you might encounter if you continue working
with them.
