  • Clients say they get charged exorbitant fees for worthless information and can’t get the company to stop auto-charging their credit cards
  • Contributors and tutors claim the company inexplicably closes their accounts and takes their earnings after they’ve spent hours working
  • Tutors earn between $1 and $4 for answering student questions. If someone buys your notes, you supposedly get between $5 and $20
  • Complaints were found at the Better Business Bureau, InsideHigherEd, ScamBook, ComplaintsBoard and many others. The complaints are pretty consistent. We advise you to stay away whether you are a client or a tutor.
