At first it seemed legitimate, but following the others exact experience, Thumbtack.com most definitely is a phony business providing fake leads. Like the others experienced, the very moment I paid for credits (to be able to reply to leads), the amount of leads sky-rocketed! This is definitely a red flag.
Then when I asked the prospective client a totally legitimate question based on location: "WHERE in Providence is the weddding venue?", my question immediately got deleted based on violating Thumbtack's policy, specifically that I was attempting to make direct contact with the client! No I wasn't.
It's likely Thumbtack is either using a zip-code based algorhythm or low paid actual people to create these leads. I say this because if you search the internet, you will find that as soon as someone asks about specific locations, their question gets deleted! It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out someone in say San Franciso would NOT know much about wedding venues in Providence, therefore, the question conveniently gets deleted.
