Very annoying situation here. I have never and WILL NEVER deliver plagiarized content to a client, however, a client has come back at me today to say that all three of my last articles are actually plagiarized. To prove this, they have sent me 3 x screenshots of what looks like a Russian language piece of software highlighting random words in random sections of my delivered articles.
None of the examples make any sense, as the checker they are using seems to simply highlight random words like ‘do,’ and say that if these can be found anywhere else online it’s plagiarism.
Since the work delivered is NOT plagiarized (I’m emphasizing the NOTS here to get the message through to the “it must be plagiarism” cretins) I have ran the work through my own plagiarism checkers and verified that all content is 100% unique aside from a 3.14% similarity in one article which is a basic false positive. (I have also sent links to other plagiarism checkers to the client).
Also, I have messaged the buyer with my findings and requested that if their own plagiarism checker is providing links to supposedly original content, they follow these and identify exactly what sentences or parts of sentences are supposedly copied. If they can find any examples (which actually make sense) I will be happy to amend their work but I can’t see how they could as none of their work is plagiarized.
Has anyone else been in this situation and if so, is there anything else which anybody thinks I could do?
