    Miki, there’s a marked improvement in your English. Maybe it’s because the issue has been resolved and you got your money back so you’re less stressed. Interesting nonetheless.

    That’s so funny, isn’t it? However the stress was not over this unfortunate money but over my actual papers and the finals. This was the bottom of the entire story. Than i realized quite quickly, being spammed by several ESL writers, that literally NONE of them is capable to deliver ANYTHING close to the proper, or what as an A student and a language freak I would consider as a proper, college paper. Their shortcomings were endless – language, knowledge of topic, knowledge of paper format – intro with decent thesis, body, conclusion. NULL.
    Then my time came to it’s end, and the service which may have delivered what i needed was out of my price range. The final writing round was ultimately on my own, unfortunately while trying to get ready for my finals. So the stress is off. And my beautiful ESL is back. lol Also I strongly believe that each of these annoying assignments brings me one step up on the English ladder ;)

    By the way, you could not be closer to the truth! I have always thought I am making it up, but it feels like two different ppl are talking through my mouth. There are times any political discourse on economy of superpowers is possible, there are others when buying a ticket at a movie theater makes me feel like a just-arrived-tourist. And as we have discussed before, the good proofreading from time to time would help tremendously. I love the beauty of the language and possibilities to play with it, so it is damn frustrating not being able to express myself clearly.

    Please i need help ..
    I’ve paid quite a large sum of money to have a 3500 word paper written by with a rather easy topic ( i have loads of things on my plate right now and I don’t have time to write it ..lame excuse i know but thats besides that point)
    anyways I got the paper and well I was rather surprised. I haven’t ever seen crap look so professional in my life. At first glance you look at it and go “Wow, that looks like a good paper” but when you read it its like crap basically. I talked to one of the “live chat” operators who was very understanding and requested i fill out a revision form which I did. I just got the revised paper a few minutes ago and I didn’t have to read the entire paper to know I was in trouble. I swear to god it took 3 sentences for me to get really worried. I just talked to the operator once again and she said she’ll re-assign me to another writer.. is that a smart choice? Should I spend this time trying to look for another writer/website ? No, I can’t right it. Please no smart-ass comments. If there are any freelance writers out there looking for a job please message me… then again how can I make sure i don’t get scammed by them as well ? Help :( Are they a scam ?

    They are simply not qualified to determine what constitutes “quality” writing in the English language. That is what makes their identity fraud so damaging to unsuspecting customers�like you�who do not find out the truth until it’s too late.

    I would suggest you find some good site for your paper……Also, the forum restricts any kind of recommendations

    Dear notmartha
    It would be better in any case if you wrote this essay by yourself. Maybe you can use the paper you’ve got as a rough draft. In this case you can request a refund, and get at least some of your money back.
    If you don’t have time to write it you should demand this company to revise it untill you get what you need. Provide them with very specific instructions about corrections that should be made, and demand a writer to send drafts of your revised paper, so that you keep up with what’s going on with it.

    They simply do not have the capabilities. This would be like taking your car back to the same chimpanzee time after time demanding the he keep working on it until its fixed–he’ll bang some things around, but he has no idea what he’s doing and your car will never run right.

    pheelyks, I believe there are different writers in every company. some of them should actually be able to produce something decent from time to time. otherwise they wouldn’t get any orders at all
    pheelyks Jan 31, 10, 05:17PM | #7

    Unfortunately that’s just not true, lorinda. Do you have any idea how many brand new customers there are in this industry very year? And the numbers are larger for individual companies and websites–a customer might try three or four different sites in a row and get burned by all of them. First time order are a HUGE part of the scam companies’ business; they don’t need to rely on repeat business to stay afloat.

    Absolutely correct. Customer turnover is probably higher in the essay industry than in any other industry on the planet. Every semester, there are literally MILLIONS of brand new, potential customers around the world who are ripe to be defrauded.

    true but its still okay to get recommendations through private messages if I understand the forum rules correctly.. please do help if you can. The people who have sent me private messages so far seem dodgy. How can one offer to provide quality papers if they can’t even spell quality :/ “qualitty”.

    lorinda:

    Yeah , I’ve started doing that as we speak. About the refund, how would I go about doing that? You think its possible ? I’ve already paid the full payment through paypal..

    That’s one reason you’re comparatively safe with private freelancers: we need repeat customers and referrals from satisfied customers and could never make a regular living on unsatisfied first-time/last-time customers.

    To be honest, I have not gone through every single sentence stated in the forum rules. However, it is my personal opinion that getting recommendations through private messages is better than getting scammed through some sh*t companies. After all, the private freelancers provide you with greater flexibility, better quality, and freedom to fix your own terms and conditions. I know some freelancers who are even open to receive payments after they deliver your work. In other words, there are lesser chances of getting defrauded.

    Lobinho – the no recommendations policy serves the best interest of customers, not writers. You should support, not object to it. The fact is that most here are freelancers and only a mere handful is any good. For your own sake, do not follow any PM recommendations as you are very likely to land a substandard writer. The truth is that no good writer will ever accept payment after delivery (they don’t need to) and will not need to trawl this forum in search of customers. There are some good writers here but you won’t find them pm’ing you. The PMs you get will only be from the desperate ones.

    I know that this isn’t the response you were hoping to get but it is in your best interest.

    Never. Not the good ones.

    Yes, most are awful but some are good. Which is which? Rely on your own judgement and trust it.
