“The Commission on Higher Education cautions the public against Facebook pages and other social media sites purporting to offer ghostwriting services for essays, case studies, and theses for a fee. These pages are not in any way affiliated or approved by the Commission,” it said.


The CHED said these activities were illegal, violating the Intellectual Property Code, the Cybercrime Prevention Act, and other laws.

It added that students who patronize them may be subject to penalties, such as academic dismissal or expulsion. The CHED also urged the public to report these violations.

“The public is encouraged to report such illegal activities to the Commission as it may constitute a violation of the Intellectual Property Code, or the E-Commerce Act, or the Cybercrime Prevention Act, and or grounds for supervision, dismissal, expulsion, or exclusion of students,” it added.
