Honest essay writing sites request...HELP


May 10, 07, 06:03PM | #
I've not seen anyone else here who writes for these companies.
I have no idea if the people running this are trust-worthy or not, I'm in a similar position- I won't have lost any money but I will have wasted a lot of time on someone else's work instead of my own.
I'm a 2nd year Cambridge student, I've only written one essay for this kind of service (though I hope to write more). I worked very hard on it, I think it was better than the requested standard, but I haven't been paid yet so maybe I was scammed. Which is a shame, because I could do with 70 or so, whilst whoever commissioned it must have too much money kicking around. They only commissioned a 2;2 standard essay, they might as well have done it for themselves.
Why do people buy essays? Surely you can't alter them afterwards without reading the sources anyway, which if you planned to do you'd write it yourself. People buying masters and dissertations seem cheeky but I suppose fair play, for the money you spend you're probably very likely to make it back in whatever job you get as a result of the qualification. Though on some more fundamental point I wonder a bit why people want to go to university if they're content with coming away without the knowledge, they may well just fall on their arses in whatever job they get as a result- if you get employed on the basis you can produce top-standard written work quickly they'll need to learn fast or get very left behind.

Why is it fair play for people to buy Masters and PhD dissertations?

People buying full dissertations worries me more than students buying the occasional essay.

If your tutor had bought his or her Master's or PhD degree dissertation from an essay company and submitted it as their own, would you feel it was fair play to them (and you) that they got their position and salary on the basis of a bought piece of work?

Plagiarism is not cheeky. It is fraud.

May 11, 07, 05:02PM | #
Firstly, it is not plagarism of my property, the work is copyrighted to the essay writing service, which is their purpose. It is dishonest, that's not really been in question anywhere on this website as far as I can see, the only comments made are why people basically feel that it's ok in their case. It's not for me to judge, I could work in any number of ways to make money and this seems a far more effective one than the minimum wage jobs I've done every holiday. If they get found out they'll obviously be in a bad situation, but it's not my judgement if their dishonesty is so wrong.

Secondly, 'fair play' and 'cheeky' were obviously used in a conversational style. Maybe that kind of work would help them more than the occasional essay, but what will come of it? People can advance themselves in all sorts of ways with money, if they are not up to the resulting jobs then they won't get far, and if they are intelligent enough but were too lazy at university then while the work was fraudulent it was not entirely misrepresentative of what their abilities might be. I fail to understand why people but the 'occasional essay', I suppose if missed deadlines will endanger their degree then it makes sense, but commissioning a 2:2 standard essay to be done in 6 days (which is what I did) seems hard to justify- that is ample time to produce a work of that standard, and if they are unable to produce the work for a valid reason then it should be valid enough to present to the university ie. family concerns, ill health etc. There are obviously exceptions that can be found, but I'm sure a lack of effort must feature.
And with respect to possible future jobs it seems very unlikely an aspiring academic would buy their work, and were they to, I doubt they'd find work at any credible university (I think I'm justified in my belief that the Cambridge supervisors and lecturers I have encountered did not buy their PhD's online, or if they did I hope they can also show me the sites where they will write you academic research, books and teach you how to appear to know the information).
It is fraud, and I would never do it, but I am in no position to judge anyone doing it, especially as they are paying me for a service.

I agree with earlbird that it is totally unethical and wrong for students to request these essays and then pass them off as their own

Maybe I should set up a set just for online tuition and essay writing guidance as well as proof reading :lol: could still make a good profit and charge loads less than these essay writing sites. I sometimes wonder who runs this forum as there are certain essay writing sites that don't seem to get a mention and I am sure that they don't have 100% totally satisfied customers. Maybe this forum is run by one of them to knock all the other essay writing sites. It wouldn't be dificult for an essay writing site to set something up like that.

One site I did like for essays is www.essays-r-us.co.uk as they offer essays as research papers only so that students can get an idea of how to write a good standard essay. They are also linked to a site called www.law-tuition.co.uk which gives online law tuition. I have never heard anyone on here making bad comments about it so maybe they are doing something right :lol:

The essays-r-us.co.uk website would make me run a mile ...

- No company registration details - which they have to declare on the website if they are a UK registered company. I personally would not place an order with any UK essay business that wasn't a UK registered company.

- No postal address - just telephone numbers and an e-mail address - again, if they are a UK registered company their registered address has to be displayed on the website. I personally would never do business with any individual or company who did not openly declare their trading address on their website.

- A whois look-up gives the owner as an individual: Dorit, Finchley, London N3 3NJ

- A quick google on the owner gives a BBC online article in which Dorit brags that her service allows lazy students to sit around in bars rather than write essays (http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/education/4445357.stm) and admits that her service "belittles the whole education system". I find this attitude unsettling and unpleasant.

- Dorit brags in the BBC article that she sells 500-1,000 essays a week with prices starting at 50, which does make me think that she should probably be registered as a company and probably also registered for VAT (if she is registered for VAT then I think the VAT registration number is also supposed to be declared on the website).

PS Dorit, if you are reading this: your domain has expired.

The point I was making in my earlier post is that buying the occasional essay, while still cheating if the essay is submitted as ones own, is unlikely to affect the overall degree result as all 'credible' universities require undergraduate students to pass rigorous examinations which will determine the degree award and classification.

I feel that there is a particular problem if students are buying full dissertations as students may have enough knowledge to pass their viva voce, but are gaining a qualification based almost entirely on the written (purchased) product. These students may then go on to take up positions in universities where they are responsible for guiding the research efforts of others, which I find repugnant.

I was contacted through this site by someone who needed help with her PhD thesis and who erroneously thought I might help her. Through subequent e-mail contact she told me that she was under pressure to submit, was currently lecturing and tutoring undergraduate students which she said left her little time to write, and had plans to take up a postdoctoral fellowship after graduating. I suggested that she took some leave or a sabbatical to focus on her thesis but later heard from her that she had found a writer. I truly hope that this was an isolated case.

Funny you should say that. I've long had the suspicion that some forum members make posts recommending particular essay sites over their competition without declaring what their interest is.

By the way, to save you looking, I've never recommended any essay company and only recommend that people do their own work.

May 12, 07, 12:33PM | #
It is a shame in the case of that PhD student, I imagine that students who tutor/supervise probably do find that time is tight- it seems though that the university should also be monitoring this more closely through their Director of Studies/Co-ordinator. It does seem however that this must be a less common phenomena- the service I have written for mainly seems to put up undergraduate essays, some masters, and the odd revision aid.
I understood that you were saying it would affect the end result more than a normal term-time essay, I was just reasoning that while this was obviously dishonest there was only so far this could take them (if their abilities weren't up to later jobs or positions). On a lesser scale, the education system is full of inequalities, from funding to personal concerns, all altering to some degree the individual's ability to gain qualifications.

If you are trying to insinuate that I have some ulterior motive in mentioning this site I don't. I have been looking for sites where I can sel model answers to as opposed to becoming a custom writer. I figured as I already have sold many suh model answers to universities (primarily Birmingham University) that it wouldn't hurt to sell them to one of the sites where they state that the essays are supposed to be for guidance only.

The way the essays are o that site where you could get several people buyng the same essay would mean that you would have to use it as a guideline. Least that was the way I read it- correct me if I'm wrong.

I can live with writing essays as guidelines- its only the same as a student borrowing a book or disertation paper from the library and using it as a reference point.

Maybe you could have just said you prefer to write for essay banks rather than custom essay companies. I don't think it was necessary to promote a particular site, particularly as it is both an essay bank and a custom essay company.There are other sites that are both essay banks and custom essay companies - there's nothing unique or more ethical about this one.

just as long as you don't fall for essaywriters.net, i guess you're still fine. the company does not screen out its writers so quality is compromised. the better writers are leaving the company because they are not paid on time, if at all. i wrote for essaywriters.net for some time so i should know. i revised some articles that were rejected by customers; they were really bad. many of its customers just keep quiet.

Hello All,

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.

Yes, thank you WritersBeware. I didn't see these complaints before I started working for them.

The weird thing is that I have not found any other researchers yet, just customer complaints.

until we know more about Projects1stClass.com, all writers then should BEWARE!

Jul 9, 07, 09:12AM | #
Yes, I am willing to help writersbeware. What should I do? Definitely stay away from Projects1stClass.com and his other dozen or so sites. The accompanying site for students is 1stclassprojects.com, I believe.

I will write again later this week. He is saying I owe him money and that I didn't do anything of quality and all my clients were unhappy.

He gave me projects that were late and now he is saying it is all my fault. He hasn't paid me in over 6 weeks for work I did 2 months or more ago.

He emails me regularly to complain. He has shut me out of the website and gives me data that contradicts what he says. He doesn't want to pay me anything when I did a ton of work and desperately needed and still need the money.

Stay away from Peter Richardson.

Jul 9, 07, 09:49AM | #
sagehorse, sorry for missing a comma there. i meant to address writersbeware with the question of whether SHE's willing to help you with some advice.

anyway, do post again later so we'll all be aware of Projects1stClass.com's modus operandi.

custompapers.com are rubbish

My advice to anyone is not to use Custompapers.com. I used them last year and the work was appalling. Not one assignment was worth anything and I had them assessed and the highest came back at 32% and the lowest was 21%. I argued with them to try and get my money back but all they would respond with was that they only promise a result which would pass. Not much good to someone who doesn't want to 'just pass'.
Anyone who comes on here making out that they are a fantastic company are liars or probably work for them

I have to totally disagree with the above and NO, I don't work for them and I highly resent being called a "liar". So you might have had a BAD experience with them. Many of us are very impressed and satisfied with their work.

Anyways, here is my expereince:

Normally, I research and write my own papers, but my last paper for this semester was recently due and due to all kinds of other things I am involved in, I just couldn't find the time to do it. This was my first and only, and hopefully last time to use a company that offers these services.

I contacted numerous companies with my clearly defined requirements.

EssayEmpire was the first to respond.

Note - I had not yet found EssayFraud.org or this site yet.

I went ahead and paid them their quoted fee...What I got back was what looked like a pre-written summary of a novel. I emailed them and they stated that they would revise ASAP. I have not heard back from them and am requesting and working on getting a refund. I paid 2Checkout.com via PayPal, so, one way or another, I don't think it will be a problem getting a refund.

I was in panic...Having found EssayFraud.org I read several of the posts and although they will not make recommendations, I found a post that stated experience with a couple US companies that supposedly are legit and EssayFraud verified.

I tried Essays On Call - but they were too busy to take on my order.

I tried ********* - Originally they stated they could do it. I contacted them 6 hours prior to the due date for a status and they replied that they could not do it and are issuing me a refund now.

And Custompapers originally stated that they couldn't do it, but within an hour or so replied that one of their writers would take on my order.

I was very specific in what I needed and with a very short timeframe to have it.

I feel that they have the best customer service - ie Sales and Support persons - I was quickly put in touch with my contracted writer and sent her resources that she did not have.

I received an excellent paper and well before the established time that I needed it. I now prefer to work with that writer only.

And that's my opinion - And ya know what they say about opinions.

Hi Guys,

I have recently enrolled in MBA and running late to submit my essay... I have requested a quote from EssayRelief and Custompapers.com..

Essay Relief offering 178 for the essay and Custompapers approx 166 ($330) so not much difference but I am not convinced or should I say can't make up mind..

I need 2 essays so the money in context is big...

Any advice will help..

Thanks

Jan 1, 08, 10:15AM | #
I can't vouch for custom papers but just submitted paper specs for a quote and they are damn expensive-I guess they are reliable since everyone is standing by them but at 30 dollars a page...I don't know....it seems very very steep...I guess it all depends on how bad you need a paper written...and I even gave them 7+ days to do it....

Hi,

I do not know if they hire writers. But I know of a company that is run by four academics. I received an essay from them and spread the word around. At least 24 of my friends received excellent essays. It does not have a great website, but an honest company. One student changed his mind and received 90% refund within a week. They started recently. Their email is verona8@hotmail.co.uk. You can write to them and find out if they hire writers.

Please spread the word amongst writers and students not to keep in touch with this individual or his many companies. We must do something about this. Other companies cheat too. But not to this extent. This is inhuman.

i think the same thing about EW writers too. i don't get it either. these companies get thread after thread of folks talking about being cheated, poorly treated, etc. and then it all happens again in a month. until a sizeable amount of writers increase their standards, these frauds are going to continue to exist.

Jan 10, 08, 07:18AM | #
Agree with you Lavinia. Another reason could be that new writers are unaware. We have to spread the word in more websites (please let know of them, any of you!) and a better thing to do is spreading the word in all the Universities about these companies so that students and writers both keep away from them. It will be a kind of social work. Getting rid of criminals.
