How to Avoid Scam Companies

There are many companies on the web who advertise custom essay writing services. Most of these are genuine, but some are not, and you run the risk of being ‘ripped off’ and not receiving the service and help you are paying for. If you want to work with a genuine UK based company and employ UK experts to provide you with academic help, then you must be careful and avoid non-UK based firms, who claim to be able to provide you with a quality service but often do not. Scam websites use unqualified foreign writers but pretend to be a UK based company. You may get plagiarised work or something copied and pasted from the web.


If something goes wrong, what guarantees do I have?


A foreign based company is not subject to UK law. You will not be able to sue in a UK court. Entrusting your work to a non-UK firm means you will not be covered by UK Consumer Law.


So how do I avoid scam companies?


Make sure that the organisation really is a UK registered company. Do they hide behind a PO Box address? Are you able to find out exactly where they are trading from? A UK business will have a registered address, which sometimes is the address of the registered auditors of the company. These details must be displayed on the website. You are free to call and check the legitimacy of these details.


A UK registered company will pay tax in the UK, will have a UK business bank account, and is unlikely to have an international or European bank account. A UK business will also have a registered VAT number. You are free to check that this number belongs to a UK registered company and is legitimate.


Look carefully at the website and read everything


Check for spelling mistakes and other obvious signs that might arouse your suspicions. Beware of pretty logos and fake endorsements. Foreign companies often use overtly British images such as the Union Jack flag. Is there a UK telephone number you can call?


Check testimonials and reviews


It is not difficult for a ‘scam company’ to create false testimonials and reviews about themselves. This may look convincing but you should make a point of checking them out yourself.


Call the company and speak with someone


Make sure that the company has a genuine UK telephone line. Call the number and you should expect to speak with a UK based member of staff. Listen to their accent. Do they know what they are talking about? Find out if they are part of a group or owned by another company not registered or not operating out of the UK.
