I just checked academic writing help out due to having a paper to write and seeing what was there for help. I had not checked out this website out before nor had I checked out the reviews written before calling them. After I had made the initial contact with them and I was on the website, their system kept trying to load an Chat line on my computer without asking permission. I would exit it, but the website seemed to be forcing the Chat session several times. It was very odd to say the least. Then, while I was on the line with a representative from this company, he asked me what my report was about and some other legitimate questions about that and did not seem too pushy. He gave me a verbal quote that my small report would probably be about $16.95 per page and to type out what I needed on the Chat line that had now loaded again to my computer. He was already attached to me through the Internet. Isn't that odd, I thought to myself. I asked him to give me his Email address and I would send him my information that way. I didn't think this was going appropriately for security of my computer and tracking of the information needed in this situation. Well it was a good thing I did not sign up because right after I did some research on their practices, I emailed the representative that I would not be interested due to the reviews I was seeing about their company practices. The representative said to me over the phone that you know how our competitors will write all kinds of bad information about us. You shouldn't be so worried about those remarks. I told him at that point that it would not work. I never gave him any additional info, no personal information whatsoever. Thankfully, I did not sign up with them to help me after I checked the several websites posted with reviews (including this website too) about them which were posted about their service!

This is even more interesting... Right after I hung up, I was looking into other reviews and my computer security system kicked in and stated that there was a malicious malware problem that was trying to load to my computer. Now how could that have happened you may or may not ask. After stopping the virus attack from loading to my computer (this Trojan malware was disguised as a Windows Security update. It looked unfamiliar and my security program (Nod32) did not trust it so it blocked it). This was a new twist for me,...I had never had that happen before because I have my system secured from these things. This was my first experience in what friends/people will tell us about not visiting websites that you don't trust. My, my...tricky lil' creeps, aren't they.... I verified this information with my IT person who helps me with various IT needs. This was just too weird. I'm glad I never asked for their assistance. BEWARE!

I was just wanting to post what happened to me during my little episode with dealing with this company. Yes...Watch it...they have some nasty things that can happen to you just by visiting their website apparently.
