How to know fake freelance essay writing companies
Essay writing is now a relatively rising niche in outsourcing. Numerous people around the world write essays and other assignments for college students in Asia, Europe and North America. Even companies and individuals who are not necessarily students in these countries also engage contractors/writers to do certain tasks on their behalf.
They do so through a number of online platforms otherwise known as freelancing websites or essay writing websites. Like any other online business; essay writing depends on trust –that the company will pay the writer once the customer receives their complete essay. The customer ditto trusts that once a writer has taken their order, they will do it diligently, without plagiarism or delay.
The writer hopes the company will keep its promise, just as he/she has to keep the promise of doing the tasks given to their best.However, as most freelancers will admit; this is not always the case. The essay writing field has been infiltrated by hundreds of fake ‘companies’. Their sole mission right from their formation is to rip off poor writers. They create glossy websites, give alluring promises, and even include anonymous reviews to convince any poor writer looking for a suitable company to join them.
Unless one knows from the outset the right companies, they ultimately end up being conned. They enter into debts, hiring computers, even premises and subscription for internet services and slave a whole month yet the very companies they have been working for renege on their promise of paying. They are clearly not trustworthy. The poor writer, probably from a poor third world country becomes even poorer. This also creates a groundswell of hate and anger against citizens from the countries from which the scam writing companies come from or originate from. One can only glean the extent of anger against such companies-and by association nationalities from the countries the scam companies are based, from the venom posted on social media sites.
As a new freelancer, you don’t want to be scammed, your time wasted, and money lost. You need to know the right companies to join, the criteria to determine a fake from a genuine company. There are a number of ways to do this.
First, before registering with any company as a freelance writer, do some Google search .You can write something like “scam essay writing companies” or “list of reputable/genuine essay writing companies”. You will get thousands of customer and writer reviews about these companies. For those that have ever scammed anyone, you will know by the reviews in the threads. Most companies especially those based in India, Pakistan and Ukraine or any other Third World country for that matter are fake or extremely exploitative and they thrive on exploiting novice freelancers, yet they don’t pay.
Most often UK based companies such as http://www.the pensters.com/writers/big five; and even US based ones are genuine (though not all).The company, http://www.thepenster.com/writer/bigfive is particularly reputable in the way it professionally deals with both the customers and the writers. When you see unrealistic advertisements on the websites of any essay writing company such as exaggerated pay rates claims, flee from that company at once. Reason and be realistic when evaluating company promises.If they are exaggerated, get a hint it is probably a scam.
The other feature of a scam essay writing company is that the customer care never responds to you once you mention about the issue of salary.Or, the company starts shifting goals with regard to the pay dates. If you find a company delaying paying you for more than two weeks, smell the coffee and flee before you lose much of your money. You might end up working for long, yet they won’t pay.4writers and freelancers are some of the companies behaving like that. This writer has experience of losing in excess of 200 dollars from the scam companies; several other fellow writers have similar experiences as well with particularly these and numerous other such companies.
Then the other way to avoid being scammed is to probably liaise with other experienced writers. You can ask around if there are probably people familiar with the company (ies) you intend to register with. You can Google and connect with fellow experienced freelancers through social networking sites and most will not mislead you.
The last way to determine a scam essay writing company is to see if one essay company has several other sister sites. If it has, most of the times, it scams novice writers. The numerous outlier companies are fronts to scam thousands of desperate freelancers. Once you establish you are dealing with such a company, take caution as most probably you are dealing with a scam company.Still, some companies lie about where they are registered in. Ukraine and Asian companies tend to lie that they are registered in either US or Uk.They even have staff with European sounding names, which otherwise might be aliases. A bit of research on Google will certainly save you several hundreds of dollars in terms of time and money.
