This could make for an interesting lawsuit. A college senior in Colorado has filed a Better Business Bureau complaint against Essaywritingcompany.com, owned by Jordan Kavoosi, after the Minnesota company allegedly failed to deliver the paper in time. This may appear a bit odd since the student is complaining about a company that cheated her in her effort to cheat, but the student wants a refund.
She is quoted as saying “I ordered it, and they were supposed to have it back to me within four days. I constantly emailed. Nobody replied to me. Then (Kavoosi) calls me and says under no circumstances am I going to get a refund.”
These companies would normally be vulnerable to lawsuit, particularly in guaranteeing an “A” grade. When they fail to produce, who is going to sue as the cheated cheaters. BBB actually purchased on paper for $40 — two-page paper titled “The Ethics of Advertising to Children.” They asked Dan Wackman, a professor in the University of Minnesota School of Journalism and Mass Communication, to review it and he gave it a “C.”
If this student had the guts to admit her own cheating, she would probably have a case for refund. The site states the following:
Your term paper or research paper has a huge impact on the grade you receive in your class. This is why it is important to trust the future of your progress with a valued company, which produces great results. At Essaywritingcompany.com, we are so confident in our services that we are going to offer you a 100% satisfaction guarantee.
The site guarantees an A. I fail to understand why state officials have not prosecuted the company and owner if it is guaranteeing As and failing fulfill such a promise. That would (if true) appear a basis for fraud. It may also be the basis for a class action. With a few students who can assert “typical” injuries under Rule 23, it would seem an excellent way of getting around the problem of other students having to come forward by name (though they would have to acknowledge their past involvement in any settlement).
