Craigslist cheaters caught by teachers in sting operation

Craigslist cheaters caught by teachers in sting operation

Students cheating on tests is nothing new. Clever cheaters are always coming up with new ways to beat the system. But clever cheaters should know better than to advertise their cheating on Craigslist.

A group of around 100 college professors in Seattle banded together in an online sting operation and caught dozens of students looking on Craisglist for people to take math placement tests for them. Other posts offered money to take entire courses!

See an example post below:

Are you good with college level math? I need a taller college aged brunette female student to take a math placement test for me in person as I am out of state currently. If you believe that you can be of help please respond to this ad and let me know your math qualifications. Must know college level math. Willing to pay a neg fee. This could turn into more work in the near future if interested. Serious inquiries only as I need this done ASAP! Thank you!
