Scammers whipping out fake university papers online are causing a cheating epidemic among students

Scammers are whipping out nearly £180 essays from Scottish students that ‘guarantee’ them a passport.

The fake papers on offer have fueled a fraud epidemic in some of the top educational institutions in the country.

The Daily Record has uncovered shocking new figures showing that some universities have reported a more than 1,000 percent increase in crime in recent years.

Scammers in internet-based ‘attachment mills’ are targeting Scottish students after being banned in England a year ago but remaining legal in Scotland.

Academics and top politicians have called for a legal crackdown, warning that the integrity of our top universities is under threat from the rise of scammers and unscrupulous students copying work online.

Our investigation uncovered a number of ‘attachment mills’ providing services to Scottish students.

The website ranks high in a Google search for ‘UK Essay Service’.
