When doing any kind of business online or in-person that requires the exchange of private or sensitive information, you should always focus on what assurances are being offered to you. As a customer do you have any type of legal recourse if your information is handled poorly or is shared with others? Does the site you are working with offer a non-disclosure agreement? Does it offer a confidentiality agreement? You want to ensure that your work is protected and that your purchase is protected. Does the site offer a money back guarantee if you are not satisfied? When looking for writing assistance you will find sites that boast about having a staff made up completely of PhDs. Is there any way for you to verify their credentials? Anyone can say they are anything online. Make sure there is some way for you to prove their legitimacy. If a company is unwilling, for any reason, to share their credentials with you, then don’t work with that company. A completely legitimate company will not hesitate to prove how legit they really are.
If you are studying as an online student and you are looking for online help with your dissertation, then ask your professors and others in your classes where they have found quality assistance. Referrals will help point you in the right direction, but never trust something on the word of another. Always verify a service or company on your own. A fast way to start this process is to search for the name of the company in an Internet search. Pair the name of the company with other keywords. You might use: “fraud”, “scam”, or “lawsuit”. After searching the company name, if the first link that comes up alleges that the company committed some kind of scam or illegal activity, then look for a different company. As always be aware of where the information is coming from. If there is only one search result that appears negative, then look to see where that one result is coming from. If it is a blog post by an angry consumer, then it may not be the strongest source.
In the end I think it comes down to asking questions. If you have a question, no matter what it is, ask. The more you ask the more you know. And if you can’t find answers, then you’re probably looking at a scam.
