Writers Global Is A SCAM ARTIST

This is just a quick blog to warn you all from making the same mistakes I did.  For the past month I wasted my time working for someone under the Skype name Writers Global.  I found this user through http://www.odesk.com.  They had several postings for article writing jobs such as this one https://www.odesk.com/jobs/Full-Time-Writers-Needed_~01fd26d869440e8187?search_result=1 Needless to say all of the user’s advertisements through oDesk are identical.  The scam artist goes under the name of Jessica Ray and claims she is from New York, United States. When you send an application to her through oDesk, she will respond with a rude “ADD ME ON SKYPE” whilst ignoring everything else you’ve said to her.  Once you add her on Skype she’ll feed you this nonsense about how she’s currently making payments through paypal rather than oDesk because “oDesk has trouble accepting new Paypal accounts”.

She will not employ you through a contract via oDesk.  You will also notice that her payment methods are all unverified.

Essentially I spent a month writing and researching FIFTY ARTICLES for this scumbag all to be blocked and not paid a dime.  I should have earned 240 euro but I will now receive nothing.  This scam artist is tricking people all around the world and submitting OUR WORK under THEIR NAMES for money.

If you have already accepted Writers Global via Skype, BLOCK THEM IMMEDIATELY BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE. Please, learn from my mistakes! If you’ve already begun writing for them, BLOCK THEM NOW BEFORE YOU WRITE ANY MORE.

Needless to say, a scam artist will probably be inclined to pose under a few different identities, so I’ve made a quick list for you to know a scam artist straightaway. If only I had known this all along:

1. Through oDesk, don’t ever go near a job posting that doesn’t have a verified payment method.

2. If they tell you you’re employed but don’t begin the contract through oDesk, don’t trust them. Just end it there before it goes any further.

3. NEVER TRUST someone under the name of Jessica Ray / Writers Global

4. If they claim they’re not paying you through oDesk but through a different means, do not trust them. This is most certainly a SCAM.

5. Above all else, use your common sense. Don’t trust job postings that have unrealistic payment methods. If the client is rude to you, they’re most likely a scam artist. A vicious personality normally goes alongside vicious intentions. The scam artist who fooled me was often rude and unkind through our messages.

It is sickening that I spent so long writing and researching for this bastard. Please realise though that if you follow these guidelines you won’t get scammed via oDesk. One more point – always choose HOURLY contracts in preference of FIXED. oDesk guarentees payment if you work an hourly contract to a verified payment method.

BEWARE OF WRITERSGLOBAL. Together maybe we can put an end to this bastard for good.

Please, if you found this useful, share it onto your social media webpages to warn others.

    • This is a disgusting individual and I truly hope they get their just desserts one day. And you are welcome, if I can warn at least one person against this putrid human being then my job is done. And thank you for notifying me of another post. I wish you a great day. Spread the word about this vile scam artist! 🙂

  1. also under the name of Joshua Newton (via oDesk). Same story, Spent hours writing a content article (on ‘The Proper Equipment needed for a pool man’), ‘Joshua’ offered pay but not via oDesk, spelt plagiarism wrong (which was probably the giveaway), wouldn’t speak face to face on Skype. Luckily I didn’t waste a month… And now I know EVERYTHING I need to provide the world with an efficient a pool cleaning service. (That low pay rate was so convincing…)

  2. I was also scammed by this scumbag, I was around my 22nd article when I asked for an advanced payment, but just after I finished the work, they blocked me… They now go by the name Joshua Newton, and Nenad Sokolov from iceland…. I tried pulling off a trick to catch these thieves, but they proved to be really slippery, it wasn’t worth the risk of working for nothing for these guys…. I think that writers global is a group, and when they think that they can find another prey from a previous writer, they will immediately pose as another source, but they have the same style in assigning jobs… And don’t be fooled by a “crooked” english from someone that posts the same style of job order from you… they are the same person… don’t worry, I will still hunt these guys down, until it will come to a point that everyone will be very aware about the existence of these thieves.

  3. what the heck, I just got scammed. Late notice for this in my side and I know it’s my fault that I didn’t check or google about the person yet. His Skype ID is still wirtersglobal and his current name in oDesk is Karl Hewitt. I’m so pissed.

    • Sorry to hear you were scammed. It’s not your fault, it’s easy to be drawn in by these people. They are truly sick how they could exploit people and rob from them like this. I remember how pissed I was when this happened to me. I know how you feel. At least now you will know for future reference.

  4. Urgh. Old game this one. Well, ensure you read odesk TOS before taking a job. It’s in fine print “never accept work outside of odesk”
