Total Score: 3.3/10
As my exams approached I needed to spend more time studying and just did not have the time to spend on essays and assignments. As a couple of my friends and classmates had mentioned using PrivateWriting.com so I thought I’d give it a try too.

The first red flag I should have noticed was the fact that they didn’t ask for a level of writing when I made my order. Most essay writing sites will ask if you’re college, grad school, or PhD level. Private Writing didn’t ask any of this, so I should have known they weren’t legit.
When I sign up to an essay writing website that says they hire experts, I’d expect the writers to at least have a fluency in English. I’m not sure if this is illegal/legal advertising, because whoever wrote my essay did not write like English was their first language, or like they knew anything about the topic at all beyond Wikipedia. I think they changed parts of a template that’s constantly re-sold. It wouldn’t have been safe to hand my paper in, as when I received my order I was fairly sure parts were plagiarized.
The prices for this website are lower than some others. Without any promotion or code they apply a discount, but it seems like this is to just make you feel like you got a good deal. But, one of the reasons the prices are lower is because you can’t ask for a higher level paper, or specify the kind of grade you want. You’ll pay about $340 for a 3000 word paper with a fast turnaround or $240 for a two week deadline – however that price means you’re getting a really bad essay.
They’ll offer to do a 2000 word paper in 24 hours – most students are aware that it is impossible to produce a well-researched and well written paper in that time. This makes the whole thing a scam – they’re not lightening your workload as you have to make so many changes, you might as well write the paper yourself for free.
There is literally no ‘contact us’ info on their website, so you have to hope that the robotic chat can help you out. I tried to get a refund to my account, but with no contact number, and little support it wasn’t possible. I won’t log in or sign in again, and definitely won’t hire them again.
I felt like I had to leave a review of PrivateWriting, just to warn other students to stay away from them, and not make the same mistakes I did. While there are probably some great essay writing resources out there, this just is not one of them.
