I'm new to this, so I thought I might try out Essay-Writing-Service as I hadn't seen anything negative on here (although nothing positive either...). I spent a long time researching places on this forum and other sites, in fact I probably could've written the pesky piece of work in the time it's taken me to research sites! (Little tip for you there, haha) It's so hard to trust anyone's opinion.
E-W-S have very cheap prices, so I was tempted. I'd seen a few people comment that you shouldn't trust a site that didn't have a registered company number with the Companies House... I couldn't find one anywhere on Essay Writing Service. I asked one of the 24/7 chat reps (who were, on a side note, always very attentive) about it and they said they'd email me it within 2 hours, and it isn't on their website because it isn't their "policy". This didn't happen, so 5 hours later I asked a different rep and they said they had no record of me asking for it and they'd ask their manager and email me it the next morning. This didn't happen.
The website says it's possible to pay via PayPal, and as I browsed through the payment system, there seemed to be no way to do this- the only option was by card.
Anyway, just too many little/big things were hinting at me to try somewhere different, so I tried the more pricey UKEssays.com. I'm a bit nervous about it all, I need this work to help me out so badly, and very soon. Forked out for it, and because of its high prices I ended up only being able to afford about half of the word count I actually need! Although they didn't mention that you had to provide various ID verification photographs after you've paid to even carry on with the order. The order is on hold until you provide them if you pay by PayPal. It'd be helpful if they told you this in advance, or even in the emails confirming your payment.
I'm just really hoping I'm not being taken for a ride... I simply need an averagely good piece of work to help me out during a very stressful time. I'm a journalist (although a very fair one) so if anything bad does happen I'll certainly make sure people are warned!
Just make sure you read and re-read the Ts & Cs....
