I will first try to know why he has changed so many jobs within this short tenure ......... if the reasons matches close to my thinking and if it seems genuine , I will take him , otherwise , if it's simply for few extra bucks ..........no please.

Reasons ?

First thing we must love the job what we are doing .... if not , then no use to continue ...change at the first opportunity . Secondly , if the company have no potential for professional and HRD growth , we must start looking for other jobs .And thirdly , if we have reached the highest level of our incompetence where we can't add value to ourself and company , either change ourself or change the job

Otherwise , frequent job changes only for some extra money does not speak well about your career to the professional management

I'll have to consider other factors as well. whether he's serious or not, one can judge during interview.

Why not- It is already happening with IT Industry-He changes the job frequently does not means he is not dependable or incapable
If the profile matches your expectations u shoud; Only thing is that u can always check with him if h wud like to stay longer in ur organisation(Citing Rolling stones gather no mass) or always there is an option of background check;
Atleast I will not think that as a negative
