Writers Department

Do Not Trust This "Freelance Writing" Agency

This website called Writers Department that offers job opportunities as an online freelance writer through making an online account. Through their application the website asked for a resume and an essay. They also asked for my availability hours for work and how I’d like to be paid.

Their only option was PayPal and I thought that was suspicious. I did not give them any sort of information. It was also suspicious that I could not log in until after my talk with them. Within a few hours of submitting my app I got an e-mail from a woman named “Olivia” saying that they would like a phone interview to “complete my application”. This woman did not include a last name or a personal e-mail to contact her for the interview. We had scheduled a phone interview on a weekday but they did not call me at all.

A few days later on the weekend I received a random call from her. She asked me general interview questions. Questions asking where I am from “specifically”, my educational back ground and three skills that free lance writers should have. Olivia also asked me about the sample essay I wrote and to talk about it. She kept asking me where I was from and I was vague. This woman just said,”Oh I didn’t recognize the accent.”She claimed that she called me many times during the week for our scheduled phone interview but I received none at all. I replied saying that I received no calls from her and she simply ignored what I said. Olivia also said that I would receive an e-mail between 2-3 business days on the status of my app. I believe that they are likely phishing for information and may be stealing the written work of other writers.

I am not going to reply to her e-mail if she sends it. I already reported her and sent a complaint referral. Do not trust this website at all! They are so unprofessional and did not even bother to give me a confirmation e-mail on the phone interview and were just plain rude. I also found out that they are criminals possibly from the Ukraine trying to get info from other people. I wish I knew better and I feel terrible.
