Web sites offer U.S. students new way to cheat

Even the most efficient student would have agonized over the assignment — a 30-page term paper on the social value of literary criticism.

But Richard finished it in one evening, cutting and pasting paragraphs off the Internet for an online company that sells papers to desperate U.S. college students.

The student who ordered the 30-page paper complained that the work wasn’t original. “I almost got fired for plagiarism, which I thought was pretty funny,” Richard said. “Any student who goes onto any of these Web sites is buying a plagiarized paper.”
