According to a recent study, 30% of college students fail
their courses for not handing in their term papers on time.
However, with many courses requiring weekly (or even daily)
papers, in addition to a term paper, and many of today’s
students juggling school, work, family, and a social life, time
is the one thing all students are short on. Many are choosing
to handle this problem by purchasing term papers online. But,
according the Ivy Survey, more than 80% of papers purchased
online are plagiarised. At most universities the penalties for
plagiarism are severe, ranging from failure to expulsion. As
more professors begin using plagiarism checking software, the
dangers of purchasing a paper increase. So, what is the savvy
student to do? Following a few simple tips will allow you to
safely purchase a high quality paper, while avoiding the risk
of a plagiarism accusation.
First, understand that the same guidelines apply when
shopping online as in the real world. Try to buy from a
well-established and reputable company. Before you purchase a
paper, take the time to do some preliminary investigation.
Answering a few important questions now can save you a lot of
heartache in the future.
Are all of their papers written from scratch? This is the
most important consideration. Some unscrupulous companies copy
papers off of Web, or sell the same paper over and over again.
This is guaranteed to be detected by plagiarism checking
software. Also, many professors scout the Web for pre-written
papers. Avoid any company that dos not guarantee that its
papers are 100% original.

how the company will handle any complaints you have. You
should choose a company that will revise your paper free of
charge if you are dissatisfied with it. If the paper you
receive is completely unacceptable, the company should offer
you a refund. If the company has no policy for dispute
resolution, go elsewhere.
Do they have a reputation? If you can, ask your friends for
recommendations. If this is not possible, check the Web. If the
company uses PayPal as a payment provider, check their PayPal

such as Ebay,

comments and/or feedback. See if a quick Google search turns
up anything. Often, people will discuss their experiences with
a particular company on forums and newsgroups.
If you have the time, consider contacting the company prior
to making an order. The timeliness and courtesy of the response
is a good indication of the company’s customer service ethic.
Do not do business with a company that does not reply to you
quickly, and take the time to address all of your concerns.
When you have chosen a company, and are ready to make your
purchase, remember to fill out the order form in as much detail
as possible. If your instructions are incomplete or unclear,
it will cause delays in processing your order. However, if you
are requested to provide irrelevant personal information such
as your security number, do not do so. The company does not
need anything other than your contact information, order
details, and payment information. If the company demands
information that you do not feel comfortable providing, do not
do business with that company.
