In a few clicks, Proctoru will send out an email that tells you they have received a warrant for your arrest. This is not a joke. Not only are you charged with breaking and entering, but you can be arrested as well. You will be notified by email that you have until the next business day to turn over all of your school records or prove they aren’t the results of the exam. You may also be told that any test paper copies you make are also in jeopardy of being seized by the police.
The reason why Proctoru sends you an email is to discourage you from making copies of the exam. The only way you can get around this requirement is to submit the original copy to the court. The email isn’t really meant to encourage you; it’s just an effort to scare you into believing that Proctoru may have the information it needs.
This article is not intended to provide legal advice or to be used as, in any manner, as professional legal advice. If you need legal advice, you should retain the services of a qualified attorney.
The email sent by Proctoru also says that if you fail to appear at the scheduled court date, that you have committed a criminal offense. In fact, it tells you that you have committed a misdemeanor. If you fail to appear on the scheduled date, you can be sentenced to jail time, fines, and other penalties. Even though you have signed the agreement, you are still committing a criminal offense.
The email sent by Proctoru also states that you may be prosecuted under the EFRBS laws in England and Wales. Under the EFRBS, you are protected from any penalties, fines, imprisonment, or other civil obligations by the EFRBS until you pass your exam. However, by the time you get your exam, the EFRBS protections have no effect.
The EFRBS provides no protection for you when you hire for University Examination. If you fail to pass your first attempt at taking the exam, the Proctoru website provides that you can be prosecuted for a misdemeanor if the Proctoru contract was violated. This applies whether or not you signed the contract. This means that you have committed a misdemeanor and have committed a criminal offense.
It’s clear from this language that Proctoru takes advantage of the potential for embarrassment that their name brings. The site, however, doesn’t take advantage of the fact that you’re already embarrassed by your failure.
The site also states that Proctoru will try to persuade the court to dismiss your case. The website encourages you to use Proctoru’s lawyers to help with your case. However, Proctoru’s lawyers will never tell you about the EFRBS or about Proctoru’s relationship with your financial institution.
The site also states that Proctoru has a history of unethical practices. In fact, it boasts that Proctoru attorneys have won many cases for clients who are trying to obtain benefits that they weren’t entitled to by statute, such as tax-free pensions, free medical insurance, or tax free bank account loans.
Although it seems obvious to any reasonable person that you should be concerned about Proctoru’s email, it’s hard to get any legal guidance from Proctoru if you’re a student. It seems clear that they are trying to scare you into thinking you’re committing a felony. However, the language is so vague and confusing that it makes it difficult to tell what you may be committing if you sign the agreement.
If you’ve signed the agreement, you may be surprised to find out that the Proctoru website offers no protection if you decide you want to go to court and contest your debt. You should definitely seek legal advice from a qualified attorney.
