Online Writing Jobs Scams

Postby Grumpy Mike » Wed Apr 19, 2017 7:48 am

Are all the online writing jobs scams? My feeling is that a maximum of two are not, but finding those in the haystack is not a task even Hercules would attempt.

Any first hand experience with the mills? Anything good to say about them? Tips on approaching/accessing them?

If you're writing some college kid's term paper, scam. Every darn time. These "term paper mills" (my name for them) are unethical, to say the least. Enabling plagiarism is just slimy.

Some of the "work for hire" writing sites overpromise what you'll earn, but the actual writing jobs seem legitimate to me (by and large).
Slowly putting together a "replacement" forum at http://writerswriting.proboards.com.

It's still under construction, but come take a look.
