    "Not worth it"

    March 22, 2014  |   By BennyAcid5

    Version: Viper - the Anti-plagiarism Scanner 3.0.04

    Pros

    There are no pros, it may be free but it's one of the worst programs out there

    Cons

    Everything to do with the program is suspicious.

    They actually upload your essay within 3 months, contrary to what they say on the website about 9 month waiting period.

    Summary

    Having spy removal on PC is a good option.

    "No use for Open University"

    January 12, 2012  |   By 09374867

    Version: Viper - the Anti-plagiarism Scanner 3.0.04

    Pros

    None for Open University use

    Cons

    Using Viper contravenes the Open University Code of Practice for Student Discipline SD1.9: Encouraging or enabling plagiarism. This is a disciplinary offence for which a penalty may be imposed.

    This is because your uploaded essay may be published by Viper, thereby enabling plagiarism.

    Summary

    Don't take the risk !

    "Not able to use!"

    August 30, 2011  |   By gechodesigns

    Version: Viper - the Anti-plagiarism Scanner 3.0.04

    Pros

    I am an IT pro and have my network set up with more than enough rules to allow this program out. The problem doesn't lie with anyone's network. It has to do with this thing being a poorly coded piece of garbage. Do yourself a favor and don't bother!

    Cons

    The whole thing is a con. If you read what you get for using it for free... They'll use your essay after a bit.

    Summary

    Don't bother downloading. It doesn't work. I spent hours trying to make it work. The customer support is a joke, and the comments over there are good for a hoot.

    Updated on Aug 30, 2011

    Received this email... Looks like they try to hide problems and hush-hush them. My advice... Avoid this company.

    Hi there,

    Thanks for your feedback about Viper. Rather than leave your comments
    on our blog, for a response, you could have contacted
    support@scanmyessay.com.

    There are certainly a small number of users on facebook who have
    reported problems. There are also 4,000+ users who scan their essays
    each day without any problems. The users experiencing problems are a
    very small number in comparison and we are usually able to help them -
    most of the common problems are addressed on our 'contact' page on our
    website.

    As I said, thanks for your feedback but really I think your comments
    could have been more constructive.

    Kind regards

    Jen
    Angel (Viper)
