One of those situations where you get what you pay for. Most top notch writers have a minimum fee up to "x" words, then might go pay by word rates after that. I warn all who submit articles or I order for hire that the work will be checked via copyscrape and other services. If there's a hit there will be no payment... I also do not pay "cash".
