    I order an article from upwork The writer assures me he does not spin the article.
    I get the article and run it through copyscape. It failed 10% of it copied.

    So I delete the 10% of the copy content , and run it again
    This time it comes up as 4% percent copied. I again delete the 4% that was copied.

    I ran it a third time. 91% Copied.

    I ended the contract.

    I guess he was thinking i would ignore the fact that it showed 10% copied.

    If copysape fails then it means that the content is copied and the writer must have done some shady things to write the article. You did the right thing to end the contract.

    Good. Finally, you've made the right decision. It's tough to stick with the right contract. Take care while choosing the writers for you.
