I'd be tempted to let the company know what the recruiter is doing.
Back in the day I worked managing contractors at different sites. Got a
call from one saying they had just escorted one of the contractors out the
door as they checked and found they were claiming to have a degree that
they didn't earn. Not only did they get tossed from the gig, the company I
worked for dropped them too.
Relevant quote I saw recently: Thomas Jefferson: âIn matters of style,
swim with the current; in matters of principle, stand like a rock."
This is a core principle in my book.
