Angie's list, Home advisor, Angie's list lies, cheats, steals, does and says anything to get your $ & never give any back!
I was investigating Angie's list for an HVAC service company I was planning to operate in the near future, however was and still are unlicensed to contract as an HVAC contractor, I do not even have a business license as of yet to perform work under $500 like a handyman can without a need to be licensed by the state, however everyone need s abusines license at minimum to do anything.
I was tricked into providing my checking account #/ debit card information during the registration process. I wa spromised a website they would design and assist me in implementing it and getting jobs.
As soon as they got my fiscal data I was promised "LadyX" would get back to me soon to continue with me in completing my registration and website etc.
I was diagnosed with kidney cancer and as a result my plans on opening a HVAC business was obviously put on hold, I was unavailable to work in addition to not being legally able to work so naturally I asssumed since Angies list / Home advisor vetted every expert they list on their website, BEFORE it is listed ! according to them, they would not & could not proceed with listing me as a vetted HVAC business available now to work.
Imagine my shock to learn my account was dinged for $350 for a month of allegedly listing my business since they went ahead and despite not having a website for me and having an incorect phone number for me listed in the ad so even IF anyone responded to my listing, they could not reach me as the phone number was wrong!
My girlfriend called them to tell them the problems and my status and they simply behaved as if everything was fine and I was ignoring customers who responded to the listing they made with the wrong phone number for a busness they never vetted and was unlicensed! THey continued to ignore me and her repeated calls and emails however amazingly enough Angies list had my correct phone number when it came to them trying to bill me for doing nothing!
I am possibly dying, fighting for my life with $2k to my name ands Angies List went ahead and billed me for a 2nd month of the bogus listing, which was so bad I doubt anyone called it as I had 0 references compared to everyone else with many thousands! my website was non existant and the listing looked shabby and low busdget with no reason to gamble on trying!
I had to tell my bank to change my account #s to finally stoop ANges who was trying to get a 3rd biling ! despite me dying and not being vetted etc etc, I was then told I owed them $4,200 since I "cancelled" within the first year!!! SOmething never told to me and opposite of their sales pitch which was confusing as they pretty much told me I could do everything myself free as far as being listed by them which really confused me, but that was the ide I guess. As of now they stil have my money although I did get the bank to retract 1 month they stole from me!
I see they have been doing this for years now, too bad it seemed like a good idea, but what kind of outfit tricks you into a 1 year commitment for over $4k and then tries to threaten you with collections too which i already received now!
