Predatory/Contracting Websites

Faculty and Students BEWARE!

There are now more and more tutoring and homework help services available online (i.e., Boost My Grades, Online Class Helpers, Take My Class 4 Me, No Need to Study).

Although they may sound convincing in their offer to assist with course work, having another person do your work (whether you pay for this service or not) is considered academic misconduct.

Also, the work they provide may not be correct.

Finally, these companies may require that you provide additional payment to keep your purchase a secret and as they have payment information, this could be drastic!

If you need assistance with your work, please seek help through the FIU resources listed above.
