    Before even talking to a recruiter ask them a rudimentary technical question. I'm a java dev so I ask them what an object is in the context of oo, if they give a reasonable answer talk to them if not just say no kids.

    They are working with technical people they should know at least something vaguely technical.

    A lot of recruiters also think that JavaScript = Java...

    That recruiter is wasting your time. There are good ones out there. Probe them for the full requirements before going on the interview. Good luck.
