As a student, you have surely heard of the bad reputation of writing services on the Web. Unfortunately, there are so many fraudulent companies, that it is almost impossible for a student to find a reliable, top essay writing service.
After performing a thorough research, we came up with the following list of ways to detect if a service is fraudulent or not:
1. Various Websites under Different Web Addresses
If you pay closer attention to the website content, service pricelist and range of services offered, you could notice the inevitable connection between some content writing websites. This is one of the biggest scams of writing companies, so make sure to look into every website detail to detect such instances.
In order to detect these scams, look for cases where you:
- Are redirected to the same place when filling out the order form
- Find the exact same pricelist on several websites
- Read the same feedback from customers, published under different names.
2. Fake Essay Review Websites
The latest and probably biggest trick of writing services is creating fake essay review websites that rank their website as the best one on the market. Even though there are several review websites worth looking into, do not take the advice from review sites before checking the company yourself.
3. Working with Internet Criminals
Fraudulent writing services often work with Internet criminals with the goal of getting fake endorsements and followers on the social media platforms.
Fortunately, this is very easy to spot – if you find an essay service with more than several dozens of endorsements or followers, this service is most likely to be run by hackers from a third-world country.
4. Offering Free Plagiarism Checker
Do not use writing services’ plagiarism checkers. Many will offer this option and ask you to scan your paper from plagiarism without paying a fee, but the majority of these checkers are unreliable. The worst part is, the company may even sell or use your content at some point in the future after you have entered it into their plagiarism checker.
5. Extremely Low Prices
Prices online vary greatly and this is not strange at all because of the large number of writing services on the Web. However, unrealistic prices always indicate bad content because, who would write ‘top-notch’ papers for prices that do not cover the time and expertise of their writers?
When looking for a reliable writing service, try to find reasonable prices. Surely, you would not want to spend a fortune on expensive writing services, but do not let extremely low prices scam you in purchasing from a ‘promising’ company.
Follow these steps to make the best decision when choosing a writing company. These are the most common tricks writing services use to scam customers, so don’t forget the key action you can take to detect them – take your time when choosing a writing service for your papers.
