Interesting topic.

Aside from the moral dilemma - any good interviewer is going to ask you Qs related to what you put. Unless you can back it up, I'd skip. Add to this that the recruiting agency makes bank from you landing the gig - even if you do not work out they still get $$.

PS - I had the same experience with desperate recruiting agencies. Things like wanting me to work for $20-25 an hour while they charged the client $75-100. PFFF, no thanks!
