I am a bit different than most of you, I think, because I am that PhD who has been writing for a very bad company. Projects1stClass.com
My story goes that I lost my job, live in rural area and then one of my kids wrecked our only car and I couldn't get another reliable car for the life of me, so I decided to write on the internet. I need the money.
The administrator comes across as professional, but all the projects are late when the researchers bid on them and then the bid doesn't get approved right away. So, when the researcher gets the project she is supposed to do it that day, but she is already working on other projects. The dates are all messed up, but the admin says don't worry about it, you'll get paid.
So I write these stellar papers and work my tail off and now he won't pay me. He owes me for 7 projects. I haven't been paid in a month. I am willing to admit that the last one was late because I got sick and it was a really long paper. The customer didn't complain very much, so I was okay with doing a great job. That is why his paper became the last, because he wasn't complaining. So many of the other customers complained. They didn't understand that I just got their assignments and hadn't even had a chance to do any research before they were screaming at me to finish them. All in all I think I did a great job.
From the beginning though he was a little weird about payment. He also complained about other researchers. Now he has sent me a letter addressed to another researcher, supposedly from last year, who he sued and won and she had to take a loan out to pay him back for money he lost from her being late on a paper!
He threatened to put my personal information on the web so I wouldn't get a job. He threatened to publish my papers and say I was a fraud. He threatened to ask my bank for the money back that he had already paid me, which wasn't much and he acted like I was hassling him.
This guy is a scam artist, as some people already know.
I got taken for over 2000 dollars. He twists and turns around the words of his policy and the law. This guy needs to be shut down fast.
If anyone else knows of any researchers who have been hurt by him, let me know.
