If it's a direct hire position, try pasting some of the boilerplate into a Google search. More often than not, part of the job or company description will take you to the position posted on the company's own web site.

There are currently about a half dozen writer positions in my area (I've actually interviewed for a few of them, but there was just no mutual magic there), and about two dozen recruiters emailing or posting the same job descriptions over and over again.

Recently I called a recruiter who had pasted an enthusiastic boilerplate message into a clumsy email while trying to recruit me. Inclusion of a sentence that had nothing to do with the job told me she was being directed by someone else.
