This is true, which is why we send CV's with terms of business ASAP. In most cases companies are honest and if they have precious contact that they can back up, as recruiters we would back off.

However, this doesn't stop some companies from being dishonest and initially rejecting candidates after their interview, only to contact them again directly in an attempt to avoid recruitment fees. Infact my colleague texted me tonight to say that he'd been to an exhibition today and found a former candidate of his heading up a companies stand, having rejected him at interview a month ago.

Needless to say they'll be getting a bill for 8,000+ in the morning.
