GeneralHow to handle interview request ~ Modified ~ Pin

I'm in the middle of interviewing for jobs out of state. I'm traveling down to do face to face interviews next week and one of the companies has requested that I send them some sample code before hand (as in today). I'm very leary of doing this. I've heard of companies asking for code samples and then later it's found out that they have stole the code for use in their own programs.

If I do send sample code, I am making sure nothing prioritary gets sent and usernames, passwords, filepaths and server names have been renamed or removed. Let it be noted I haven't done any programming outside of work in a couple of years (busy with kids graduating from high school and getting them into college) so I would have to use some code from work.

How would you handle this? Would you send code or not?

~ Modified ~

Thanks to all who answered. You confirmed what I was feeling leery about. I only graduated a couple of years ago so I went back and pulled some code from my last class. The only issue I had with that is the programming was done for Windows Form and the job is ASP.net. But it should give them a good example of my code skills.
If you can’t have fun at work, then why go to work?
