Submission + - Hounded By Recruiters, Codes Put Themselves Up For Auction (forbes.com)

An anonymous reader writes: When Pete London posted a resume on LinkedIn in December 2009, the JavaScript specialist stumbled into a trap of sorts. Shortly after creating a profile he received a message from a recruiter at Google. Just days later, another from Mozilla. Facebook reached out the next month and over the course of the next two years, nearly every big name in tech – attempt to lure him to a new employer. He received 530 messages in all, or one every 40 hours... the only problem? Pete London didn't exist.
