Plagiarism Check Not Working (Google API)

Hi, I signed up, paid for credit, created & added the google API key (see below if it was done correctly), and installed the wordpress plugin.. to test it, I used a plagiarized article, which shows 100% unique content. I've included screenshots, so you can see both the plagiarized text and results.


The documentation in the plugin on generating the Google API key is not current, but what I did was create an API credential in like so (xxx for privacy):

Please advise - Ari

Google Custom Search index is slightly behind ( I checked some sentences from your query, and custom search shows them as ok just like it did for you. So, there is not much that can be done here except wait (I don't know for how long, as Google does not disclose such info). Attaching a screenshot of my result.
