I am looking for all individuals who are memebers of Thumbtack and suspicous about the validity of leads that Thumbtack claims to provide.  I have not had 1 response from any of the leads Thumbtack generated even as I am offering a free lesson!

Most importantly I am looking for a legal team who will pursue a claim against Thumbtack on a pro-bono baisis. 

The company is scamming hundreds of professionals who are looking to increase thier businesses.  I am asking all current Thumbtack members to document the leads they have received and all correspondence with the customers.

I want them shut down.

Thumbtack has scammed me with over $600

AUTHOR: Michelle - (United States)

You can add me to the list of Thumbtack victims. They have scammed me with over $600 worth of bogus leads. I was desperate for leads and really had hope that I was going to get work. 6 months of paying and didn't receive not one lead through Thumbtack. Talking to their customer service is useless. If there is a class action lawsuit- count me in!

Read New user agreement re: class action lawsuits

AUTHOR: petsitter - (USA)

I, too, am a PRO who got ripped off by Thumbtack. Apparently they have made a new clause in their user agreement as of 2016 that you makes it impossible for you to participate in  class action lawsuits. HMMMMMMMMM...... I would love to get these guys busted. I feel strongly that they are fraudulent...

I am looking for victims also

AUTHOR: Anthony Scarafiotti - (USA)


Yes I belive Thumbtack is a fraud. They do have some "clients" that are ligit, but I feel a large number of the lisitngs are fraudualnt (made up). I have suspected this for some time, but kept with it a little bit as I did get a couple of jobs which I belive were lucky hits on actual people. I recently responded to a Craigs list ad and got back a response from what I feel was a thumbtack employee attempting to solicit my business on the site. They "Found" another photographer using thumbtack and oh hey have you used this service?? 

I beleve a class action lawsuite is very doable considering the number of people who feel the same. I am interested in pursuing this and am in the process of doing so. 

Contact me back if interested
