AngiesList.com Angies List Is a scam, companies can pay to be on there Internet
*Consumer Comment: Basically, they are correct.
It is all a lie. You can pay to get your company on there AND you can get fake reviews.
We own an ecommerce site that never gets any reviews, good or bad, but we needed reviews.
I signed up on their site under a personal account, created a fake review about our company, and BAM we were on AngiesList, with a fake review...
So yea you CAN pay to get a company on there. It isn't rocket science.
As soon as we created it, Angieslist starts emailing our company that we had a review. We created another account and signed up. We updated the business info and added some coupons.
Coupons, lol, All of the coupons companies enter into Angieslist are normally free services they offer to get business anyways. We put a 50% off coupon in there, the same one we give everybody. 50% off what? Exactly. We quote it as high as we need to compensate for the coupon. Sales 101
There are hundreds of free sites out there BETTER than Angieslist, and free, (hotfrog, yelp, resellerratings) so sign up there first and tell Angie to eat it.
And if you really want a few reviews, just sign up with a few fake accounts, make the reviews, and your golden.
