Quite a number of recruiting agencies around here use software that
stores CVs by parsing .doc data and throwing it into some database which
they can search on later. For some reason, said application doesn't
parse PDFs.

That's their excuse, anyway. The "change the contact information" thing
is probably the real reason.
