I wonder if you were to send your personal statement to a seller on sites like fiverr,etc if this would in some way pose a danger to the whole plagiarism thing UCAS is on about. I figure it wouldn't but you never know.

Yes. Do NOT do it!

They can either submit your PS as their own or sell it to someone else.

You can submit your PS here on TSR to have it proofread. But only in a specific area, do NOT just post it in a thread.

But those are the only ways that it could turn out bad right. I'd want it to get proofread by a top rated seller with over 4.5k reviews from Canada. I'm sure they aren't up to anything bad right? I was more worried for it to get automatically detected or something since you'd be uploading it somewhere in a sense. Thanks for the advise tho appreciate it.

I don't know how risky personal statement plagiarism is.
But the standards of proofreading and copy-editing on fiverr don't appear to be worth $5.
The site is good for other things but not proofreading.

Seriously, I wouldn’t do it... You’re quite possibly risky your entire University application on trusting a complete stranger.

Once again, TSR does a PS Service for users, with priority for users with 100+ posts.

There’s not likely to be any benefit. A proofreader from Canada isn’t likely to know what admissions staff in uk universities are looking for.
