Sure, we are! And we can do incredible things. As example - I once wrote a nice (!!! client was very pleased) dissertation (!!!)  about the advertisement theory being enough far from this theme. The most amazing thing - it took me 12 hours.

Client gave me only some parts of non-unique texts and pare sheets of Word document of her own thoughts written with a terrible style. I sent her in the morning full text of completed dissertation and got a lot of money. Although my poor fingers ached about next two days.


Julia,

 

Whatever we think of academic fraud (hint: we disapprove), the job you describe violates Upwork's terms of service. If you performed this job via Upwork, the most amazing thing is that you're telling us about it.

 

Best,

Michael

 It would be even more amazing if this client actually got awarded his degree, since he would likely have had to hire several more freelancers to help him defend it. Or perhaps the client just got someone else to do that on his behalf?

Hi Michael,

 

[Thread Hijack Start]

 

Good to read from you (it's been a while). 

 

Hijacking a thread to give a shout out is one of my favourite pastimes.

 

Hope you do mind? Smiley Happy
