Student essay writing website shut down

Student essay writing website shut down

Ever considered enlisting the help of an essay writing website? Well, you shouldn't because A) they are generally poorly written and B) it can land you in some very hot bother.

In Sydney, however, a businesswoman called Yingying Dou has been caught charging up to $1000 (Australian dollars) for a team of writers to put together an essay for academic purposes.

MyMaster (the name of the service) was discovered by journalists Amy McNeilage and Lisa Visentin of the Sydney Morning Herald (SMH), who uncovered over 9000 pieces that has been written by the company.

The online business even had the cheek to post flyers in the toilet cubicles of such campuses as the University of Technology.

They read:

"Are you racking your brains on your school work? Do you worry about spending $3000 retaking tuition on the failing subject? Leave your worries to MyMaster and make your study easier!"



The SMH also claim that the company have made over $160,000 this year alone and source their staff by offering bonuses and high wages via Chinese social media services.

It is also reported that the site also offered other types of work, including POWERPOINT PRESENTATIONS! Side note: there is no mention of whether they opted to use word or clip art as part of the service but we really hope so.

Dou currently has refused to comment on the existence of the site and the website was shut down shortly after the newspaper discovered it.

Are you having any trouble with any work? It never feels good to be out of the loop so always make sure you run any queries with your lecturer or personal tutor. It's what they're paid for!
