The internet and the virtual online world always come with two sides, the legitimate, genuine side and the other one is scams and frauds.Since the improvement in technology, anything that becomes a trend or a success, its fraudulent opposite always comes up to rip people off and takes advantage of blind loyalty or helplessness depending upon the circumstances.
Writing companies or services are no different, where there are hundreds of companies doing excellent work day and night helping students in the toughest assignments and papers, there also are companies or writers who have designed mechanisms so effective and subtle that numerous students without knowing what they are coming up against have been the victims of a fraud or scam. These companies are so professional in a way that a student is desperate for help to complete a work before the deadline eventually falls for it unless either he/she is experienced enough or knows how to identify the difference between a company providing fake services for an amazing price or a company offering legit writing services for a reasonable price.
One of the most common ways to set up a trap is to set up a price and a deal that attract a student looking for assistance, this idea comes from the theory that students generally cannot afford to pay large sums of money and are looking for lucrative deals to an extensive free help and if they come across something which is very idealistic they fall for it.One should always make sure that the prices are reasonable and practical enough, not something to just attract students in. Another common way of ripping students off is to charge students for original writing and in return providing them with a plagiarized putting them at risk of failing. To counter this tactic a student should be smart enough to first not to pay the full amount until he/she is satisfied with the quality and secondly to either ask for a full content report clearly showing the percentage of unique content or use one of the numerous tools available online to filter out plagiarism.
