The dubious rise of “Essay Writing Services” on Safe Web…

So, the past couple of weeks roving through Safe Web “contributions” i’ve noticed an influx of reviews for so-called essay writing services:

https://safeweb.norton.com/reviews/342744

https://safeweb.norton.com/reviews/342708

There have been some others, however, the aforementioned cropped up most recently.  I definitely do not like this trend.  It sends a bad message in my opinion, that students can just send away for some unknown entity to write their papers and all will be well.  The sad truth is, there are no shortcuts in this life, and, sooner or later, it will come back to haunt the people who have utilized the “service”.  I would even imagine that you don’t really know who you are dealing with, moreover, what is to guarantee that their writing is exceptional OR that they will even craft your essay once they receive your payment? 

Bottom line, i don’t like it and encourage you to not get involved with it.  Seems to defeat the whole purpose of education; you are there to learn from your mistakes, substituting that, you shortchange yourself.  It also devalues milestone accomplishments.  There were times when i would literally be up to eight [8] (in the morning) composing term papers for my degrees and what an overwhelming sense of achievement i had once that was finished.  These kids who rely on these “cheats” will not have that experience, i’m afraid.  You want to be able to “hang your hat on” something in this life. 

Feel free to post your thoughts.

Sincerely,

H.B.

You should see what happens to folks that review an Amazon purchase that comes from a China/Taiwan Amazon Supplier!  They swarm you trying to get you do accept products "in return for a verified review" and offer a full refund via PayPal!  I've been sending every one I get to fraudsupport@amazon.com!  Talk about "truth in advertising:"

I went on the sites. Essaydragon is safe and seems to be a legitimate business, and essayclick was blocked by my computer, saying it was malware.

Here is another one: https://safeweb.norton.com/report/show_mobile?name=writemyessay4me.org

In a span of a measly two [2] week period, already seven [7] glowing "reviews" that look like carbon copies using similar subject lines.  The majority only have this domain reviewed to their account. 

Hello once again Meerkat,

Thanks for taking time out to visit the sites, but, in the future, i'm not sure you want to take that risk...  As it is, you said one of the sites was blocked as malware.  Even outside of the technological aspects, for me, it becomes a question of ethicality.

Yawn.  Yet another: https://safeweb.norton.com/report/show_mobile?name=pro-academic-writers.com 

A little too convenient for my taste that all of these "writing services" just crop up out of nowhere on Safe Web....

I don't know... i keep reporting, whether Safe Web will take an authoritative stance with respect to these fraudulent "writing services" on their platform is an altogether different issue.
