The pressure of college can easily get
to you especially if you have a lot of assignments to do. Sometimes you might
even forget to keep track of all the assignments due and as time passes you
realize that you have very little time to complete your assignment. A quick way
out of this might be hiring an online writing agency. But how do you
distinguish a legitimate agency from a thousand of them that exist on the
internet? This article will highlight some of the best sites reviewed on
Reddit. We will further look at how you can identify a scam site from a
legitimate one by just looking at the website.
Scam sites on Reddit and the internet
Reddit is one of the most popular
rating sites that gives opinion on almost every subject. Here are some of the
sites that have received negative reviews on the website;
These sites have a reputation of
producing the worst essays on the internet; however, they are not confined in
essay writing. Other services offered by these sites include dissertations,
term papers, book reviews, movie reviews, speeches, and much more. What’s
common about these companies is that they produce plagiarized content even
though they have aggressive marketing strategies.
Why is Reddit the ultimate place to
find a legit essay writing site?
Unlike most online forums, Reddit is a
social platform that allows individuals to express their opinion on every
subject there is out there. Reddit gives a voice to people in need to express
their opinion on a matter and for this case best and worst essay writing
agencies. What makes Reddit the perfect place to get honest reviews is the fact
that it is a platform open to anyone and the opinion given there is unfiltered.
This is not like any other platform
that has a legal obligation to protect against infringement of anyone’s rights.
Reddit was established by two college graduates in 2005 with one simple idea.
This was to let people have a say on what is worth following instead of letting
a few minorities decide on what everyone thinks. The platform is based on one
philosophy which is to let people decide what is worth through a vote and what
emerges on top is the one worth following.
The site allows its users to post
simple comments and even share their own links hence a source of relevant
information on any topic. What makes Reddit a perfect source of information on
the legitimate sites for essay writing services is the fact that the reviews
posted there are from real people who have experienced the services. Any topic
posted there gets quite a number of contributors who vote for or against the
proposed idea. Unlike getting reviews from a company’s website, reviews from
Reddit are hard to fake because there is no control on who gets to vote for or
against an agency.
How to avoid getting scammed by fake
essay writing agencies
As already seen above, there are a
thousand online academic writing agencies and it is quite difficult to identify
legit from scam agencies. Even without checking for reviews of an agency on
Reddit or any other reviewing website, there are some things that you can check
before you dive deep into working with an agency. Here are the few things on a
website you ought to check out even before looking for reviews about the
The domain name of the website
Most scammers will purchase a domain
name just to use for a while then after scamming enough people, bring down the
website. Therefore, they do not invest in a long-lasting domain name. Most
scammers will have their web URL ending with .org or .net. Also, scam websites
will have a domain name that references a well-known writing agency but upon
opening the website, it leads you to a totally different website offering the
same services. You should not dare contract these kinds of agencies.
Too good to be true services
Most scam writing agencies will offer
unbelievable low prices for delivering an assignment. Be wary of these kinds of
agencies because, upon payment, they disappear without a trace. They may not be
interested in taking a lot of money from you but imagine how much money they
can make from scamming a total of 100 individuals like you. In most cases even,
an agency’s website will be up for just a short while, enough to scam a few
people and may not even be around long enough to catch the attention of people
and get reviewed on Reddit or any other site.
Mode of payment and payment policy
Legit websites will guarantee that if
you are not satisfied with their services, you can get your money back. Most
scam agencies will not offer that. Other than that they may also ask you to pay
through money transfer from your bank. This should be the number one red flag.
Paying via PayPal, credit or debit card can assure you money back but the
direct transfer will not guarantee that.
Secured or not secured website
A secured website ensures that any
personal information you share on the website cannot be accessed by a third
party. You might be asking on how you identify a secured website from
unsecured. Well, a secured website will usually have a URL that starts with HTTPS://
instead of HTTP:// and will usually have a green padlock just before the URL.
It takes a lot for a website to be secured therefore a scam agency will not
invest in securing their website.
While these are just a few of the red
flags to look out for on a website, they are not the only ones hence the
importance of checking out reviews of an agency. It is better to pay a lot of
money to a widely known legitimate agency than lose to an agency that offered
you cheaper services.
