I personally don't care. This is a classic case of where minding your own business is key. I'm only worried about my knowledge and not the dude I have to compete against in an interview. As long as I know the info, earn the cert, and can back up my knowledge verbally/physically when it comes to an interview (or work in general), I'm good. I could not even begin to care who is brain dumping what and faking their way through whatever. A great man once said, "What you eat, doesn't make me sh**." Worry about your own skills and knowledge, folks.

I used to ask this questions and get really pissed. Now, I don't give a ****. This is IT - you can't **** even if you want to. Yeah sure they will get their certs but as we all know every job has technical interviews and it takes 5 minutes at the very very most to weed these individuals out. I can't see how someone like that can take our place or be any noteworthy competition.

One problem with this is that the cheater might get the interview while a more qualified applicant didn't, hurting the employer and the more qualified applicant. But this scenario is not really what I'm worried about. If someone new to IT **** some exams and gets an interview, they will quickly be found out like you mention. But what about someone who is already somewhat knowledgeable and cheats to bolster their resume? They might actually be able to get through a technical interview and get hired. Later when they actually have to perform on the job, their lack of skills will show, but by then a lot of damage will have been done.
