    Licorn Publishing is a great way to get inspired to do more creative work. I also really like the individuality displayed on a lot of the websites, sort of gives you a bit of insight into who the person or people are.

    Quoting: ScamIsLikeSpam

    Also, it’s interesting how they want you to send them YOUR paper to prove that theirs was inferior. I suspect that by doing so, either 1) your paper will turn up as being plagiarized by or they keep it on file for one of their “expert writers” to finagle with later.

    good point. i can’t conceive of any legit reason a company would ask you to produce a paper to demonstrate the poor quality of theirs.

    I am no longer surprised by ANY of the new scams that these Ukrainian companies employ.

    i don’t think a 100% refund is really possible. i read somewhere here that for every order or transaction initiated, some fees are automtically paid to the credit card company or something.

    one lesson for anyone planning to use academic assistance sites is to ensure that all terms of service are agreeable to him or her.

    I can relate complety to Muhammad’s situation with I paid for a paper that I was to use in a speech and it was absolutely horrible quality. The grammer was attrocious and some of the sentences didn’t even make sense…the writer used synonyms that just didn’t fit. I could have probably fixed those problems (not that I should have to) but what was worse was that the paper didn’t even stay on topic! I asked for a paper on a specific person in medicine and instead I got a paper that generalized about the medical field and then would stick in a few things about the real topic. It appeared as though they took a previously writen paper and added things in to make it fit my topic. It read like a 6th grader wrote it. I complained and asked for a refund and got the same response that Muhammad got…” either pass in the paper and show us the poor grade from your instructor or give us the paper you wrote in order to get a refund. We need evidence of poor quality of paper.” I was livid. I told them it was the most rediculous thing I’ve ever heard. I asked why would I do such a thing? Give you a paper that I wrote so you can compare it with your writers’ paper to see if it is poor quality? I asked why would you need such a thing? So you can have it in your records to pass off as written by one of your writers? I told them anyone can see that it is poor quality. I asked, shouldn’t the burden of proof be on you? and asked them to point out the so called “professionally” written parts in the paper. I told them it was ludicrous to ask me to pass in a paper and get a crappy grade just so I can get a refund! I was blown away. At this point I don’t want to contribute to giving them well writen papers. I’m going to tell them I’ll take the loss in money and simply smear their name. I only wish I had seen this forum before I contacted them. Is there any way to actually blow this company out of the water so they can’t scam anyone esle? Better business bureau wouldn’t work because they are out of the country correct? Live and learn I guess.

    They are frauds from Ukraine.

    The best thing you can do is get their SPAM links banned. That will satisfy your justifiable need for revenge, as well as prevent the scumbags from defrauding other people.

    i’m in the midst of a mess that caused me. i ordered my paper last sunday and paid $160 for it to be ready by tuesday. tuesday morning comes along and they send me an essay… on a completely wrong topic. i was outraged. i was very clear in my description of what the paper needed to be about! the paper ended up being about hamlet, when it was supposed to be about the dharma bums. furthermore, i specified that the paper required six outside sources, which they only had three.

    i told them the paper was about the wrong topic. two hours later, they send through this piece of sh*t essay with incoherent sentences… i mean, sentences that literally lead to nowhere. but i had to accept it and turn it in that day as a rough draft, or else the final paper would have been docked an entire grade if there was no rough draft turned in.

    i gave the writer until friday morning (tomorrow morning) to revise the paper and get it to me.

    already aware of how unreliable this writer was, i called administration (and i tried calling them every five minutes for three hours until someone picked up the phone), and requested a different writer. they said they couldn’t do that because i had already accepted the paper. i told them to read the paper and tell me if they thought it was worth $160, because really, it wasn’t worth what i wipe my *** with. but they wouldn’t budge.

    so now the writer sends a message saying that an “emergency came up” and they would need more time to write the paper. i sent a message to them asking them if they could have it done by sunday, because it needs to be turned in by tuesday and i would like some time to read it and probably will end up doing some editing to it.

    i called admin and asked them to follow up with the writer, which they said they would. i have yet to hear back from either of them. i’m not going to bother requesting a refund because i know they will fight tooth-and-nail to not give it to me. after i get my (what is probably going to be) crappy paper from them, if i get it at all, i just want to wish them good riddance and never deal with them again, ever.

    i am so fed up with them. my question is, how are these people in business?! is there any way we could get them shut down?

    You should have researched them before ordering. They are Ukrainian FRAUDS.

    I just completed a transaction with it is suppossed to be sent to me in 8 hours. I have already contacted paypal, and they said my money has been sent, and that I need to file a dispute. Should I wait until I get my paper and then file or file now? I cannot believe that I didn’t check before I paid for it. I consider that my fault. But none of their phone numbers work. How do you contact them. Has anybody ever spoken with someone directly over the phone? I have started working on my paper, to be prepared for thier bad one to be sent to me. Does anyone have any advice for me? I have never even thought about doing anything like this before. My daughter was sick and I got behind in my class and I was just looking for a way out. But I am just going to to pull an all nighter and knock it out, it might not be the greatest but it will be my work and I can make sure that it is legible.

    WritersBeware May 2, 08, 05:31PM | #27


    file now?

    Yes, absolutely! Don’t give them the opportunity to send you some utter garbage just to be able to claim to PayPal that they already “delivered the product.”

    Well thanks for the advice, they just contacted me four hours after and told me that they need 48 hours to complete the paper, and asked me if it was acceptable? I said no I want a refund so hopefully I will get one if not I still filed the dispute. I cannot beleive that people are out there that scam people for these like this and they can’t get caught. I mean you would think if I asked you (or anyone) that I needed a paper to be done in 8 hours, you wouldn’t tell me 4 hours later, oh by the way….I CAN’T!!! Do you have any otehr suggestions as to whT ai should do? Please I am definately listening, oh and you wouldn’t believe who was the admin person who responded……JEFFREY!!

    you wouldn’t believe who was the admin person who responded……JEFFREY!!

    Yes, I would believe it. I proved him to be a complete shyster after he fraudulently posed as a “customer” in this forum in order to promote his scam site,

    He stated that he was going to give me a full refund, and that their site was legit. Let’s just hope that I get it. Thanks for the advice.

    He stated . . . their site was legit

    I can prove otherwise in about 37 different ways.

    Now the Ukrainian scammer who owns is using his site to blame other companies (without any proof whatsoever) for C reputation of fraud, which I proved to be justified. How pathetic is THAT?
