Default Essay Writing - legit or scam?

Has anyone had good or bad experiences with any of the essay writing companies? I saw one posted in craigslist and then googled but can't tell if they are legit or not.

Any scoop?

Just for reference - I write in the health field and had a full time gig which kind of went belly-up or at least on hiatus for a while so am looking for some serious fill-in. Basically anything I do right now is a paycut but some is better than none.

Thanks for the help

I would recommend advertising your own essay writing services. I know there's one on CL that is flagging writers' posts, so they aren't competition anymore.

If you decide to apply to an essay company, be sure to research it carefully. Look for one that you can preferably verify is located in the US, Canada, UK or Australia. I've read on other forums that there are many scam companies, particularly in Ukraine and Kenya, that don't pay their writers.

If you're based in the U.S., please keep in mind that academic writing is illegal in 17 states -- as in illegal for the writer, not just the student who's paying someone else to do his/her homework.

Interesting! It's a third-degree misdemeanor in my state. I never would feel comfortable doing it anyway.

This! Since the practice itself is unethical, I wouldn't be able to trust any company that offered it.

Usually, 'essay writing' is a shortcode for academic essays, i.e., cheating for students.

Not really worth it in the long run, as it is quite unstable and you lack required context when the task is assigned to the student.

That's a really good point I've never considered before. I don't do essay writing but I'll make sure to let friends who have considered it know about this. It makes sense when you think about it because it's essentially cheating I guess?

Of course legit. And as far as I know lots of people are earning a lot.
