Some interesting recent recruiter spam:

Company A: "Our amazing company is hosting an interviewing event, where developers from all over the area can assemble and be interviewed for a chance to work for us."

Company B: "Our founder has made a scientific breakthrough that will affect everyone in the world. Instead of lobbying for a Nobel Prize, we're building a website with a variety of levels of services and price points. Come work for us and make more money than you can imagine."
