The audacity of this academic misconduct job

We all see these from time to time but I'm shocked at the audacity of this one!

5-10 applicants too. I always flag these but still they remain. Sigh.

Ha. That's nothing. A while ago I flagged one that literally said "write my thesis."

 

The thing is, I doubt that the CS reps recognize what is common phrasing for academic assignments (in the U.S. at least) or the names of common academic tools (like the Canvas web site). So even though some of these students literally copy and paste the text of their assignments, I don't know whether CS can easily identity the job posts as obvious academic fraud.

If you look at the first attachment, there’s a name and email of a Professor. Maybe someone should blow the whistle and drop the prof a note.

You guys should also check the one job in the client’s recent history. It’s an obvious assignment.

I would do it, but the attachment has been removed.

I still see it, but due date's passed now, so either it was finished on time or it might be academic in a manner of speaking.

I actually emailed the institution and reported it a few days ago.

I flagged one this weekend which is apparently gone.  The student said he had started writing the paper in a "vague" way but lost interest!

They're probably the same students whose parents got them into college in the first place by faking that they play a certain sport.

Maybe... But I suspect many of these students are too lazy to fake play sports.
