Psssh....I got some free term papers for you. I just need yours.



Do those paid term papers sites actually work, or are they just another spammer scam to lure you pay 20 bucks a month or worst, charge you 20 bucks PER PAGE! This is my investigation of the underground world of paid term papers sites.



The Operations



Casper Smith is the head of MegaEssays.com, a paid term paper operation that\'s been pelting the Internet with claims of ten thousands of term papers. I\'m almost positive his name is a pseudonym. But does he know that Judy Garfield is not my real name?



That\'s how I introduced myself last month, when I sent Casper an e-mail asking to join his term paper crew. I fibbed to him that I was a user of his site. (For authenticity, I lightly sprinkled typos and grammatical errors throughout the message.)



I wanted to be one of the affliate of Casper\'s sites. In today\'s world of term papers, a sales affiliate setups up a \"free term paper site\" on behalf of a \"paid term paper site\" or sponsor, who assigns the affiliate a special tracking code to include in his free site. For every signup the affiliate\'s free site generates, he is paid a commission by the site operator. Sponsors also provide promotion, website software, and other support to help their affiliates successfully market the site.



I tried flattering Casper in my e-mails, gushing that he had tapped into a timely and lucrative niche. But Casper doesn\'t let just anyone join MegaEssays.com. After I sent my introductory e-mail as \"Judy Garfield\" from a free webmail account I had created, he asked to know the name of the person who had referred me to the site.



A sign at on the affliate sign up page said affiliates got paid up to 25 percent commissions for every customer. After spotting the affliate sign up page, I decided to contact MegaEssays.com and ask about joining.
