HOMEADVISOR IS A SCAM: CONTRACTORS DO NOT SIGN UP WITH THESE *** ARTISTS!

After forming a new HVAC contracting company, I was solicited by telephone by HomeAdvisor. Some smooth talking salesman said for less than a $300.00 annual fee, HomeAdvisor would provide me with leads to potential customers.

He didn't give me too many details. All I was told was the leads would cost me between $15-$30 per lead. Sounds good? Right?

WRONG!!! What he failed to mention is that the same leads are given to multiple contractors and you get charged per lead whether you get the job or not. The first two leads I received were BOGUS. I was given fake names and addresses to buildings that didn't exist.

After finding this out I called to cancel, but was given the run-around by the two clowns I talked to. They got me so pissed off after just being in business for a few days, I hung up on them. I then contacted the credit card company and disputed the $300.00 fee they charged my account.

I used a credit card rather than a debit card just to give me a way out in case it turned out to be a SCAM!, which it is.

Contractors; do yourself a favor: STAY AWAY FROM THESE FRAUDS!!! Spend your advertising money elsewhere; like a newspaper ad, flyers, yellowpages.

If theses guys had any heart, they'd be out stealing for a living!!!

This company posted a fake ad on Craig's list . I made the mistake of calling this 888 #, and they immediately sold my private home # out on a list.

I have received many calls from all over Washington state.

I just spoke to one of the companies that told me they have to pay $20 per number from "home" advisor, aka- this ad. https://seattle.craigslist.org/tac/sks/d/eatonville-ac-electrician-outdoor/6812908582.html

I am in complete agreement with other contractor's comments. Their sales people are high pressure, they indicate that the leads will be only $33.00 and that you have the choice to decline the lead.

There is an annual fee of $350.00 plus they want you to subscribe to other services that are even higher priced. Before getting off the phone with the sales person a lead came in, the service was never confirmed, the website was never accessed, no user account was ever set up. This was verified with what they call a customer service department. They are now charging us $47.00 for the lead, not $33.00.

We are receiving threatening letters about collections and their supervisor in a telephone conversation said if we think we have problems now just wait. They will turn it over to collections and ruin our credit. This company is about high pressure sales, threats and intimidation. All contractors should beware of the service, find other avenues to obtain business.

If you talk to them do not agree to anything and do not give them your credit, debit card or any bank information. You will regret it.

I’m not a contractor but have called contractors referred by home advisor; they never return calls! U can’t even pay people to work any more.

My lead was valid but not one contractor called or emailed me back.

Not even the courtesy of a reply saying, perhaps, that wasn’t a job they normally do. Nothing!

from a contractor perspective there could be a reason for this. you could have entered a small job into a high price lead.

meaning that if you wanted an outlet changed but put down home rewiring, well that lead costs around a 120 dollars, which is insane to begin with. now imagine what I would have to charge you to make it worth it for me to contact you.

id get charged immediately and then you'd go with the cheapest guy anyway. you homeowners don't realize the cost of being apart of this scam!

I agree, this company is a scam. I signed up and after a few leads that were way more expensive than Scott Carter told me they were going to be I tried to cancel my subscription.

That worked for a while, but they didn't really close the account, they just put it on hold. A few weeks ago in the middle of a Friday night my phone went off with two leads. I immediately logged in and paused leads until Monday when someone was in the office to close the account.

Now two months later they are sending me a bill, so I have been sitting on hold for 30 minutes waiting to talk to someone that can get this straightened out. Contractors, stay away from this company.

Home Advisor is a RIP OFF to contractors. $52 per lead, with four companies receiving the same lead. Home Advisor makes more $$$ than the contractors who actually do the work on small projects.Home Advisor should be force to disclose to the customer that each contractor is paying for their name.

Same happen to me. Kept calling me wanting me to sign up saying they had multiple jobs in my area so i finally decided to try it.

Once i signed up they didnt send me anything. Then finally after a few calls i got one lead and the lead wouldnt return my call. Disputed it with my Credit card and got the money back. Home advisor sent me to collections.

I told them I'm not paying and they have been calling me for about 7 months lol. The collectors said my contract only gives me 3 days to cancel. In 3 days you dont have enough time to give them a chance. I never got a contract.

They said there not obligated.

It's on there website the terms. They are a joke.

Hey it's a great concept from Home Advisor standpoint they sign up as many contractors as they can let's say you call in to get a room painted basic price about a hundred hundred fifty dollars they send that lead to 25 to 30 people Home Advisor makes 2500 to $3,000 for a lead and they don't even care whether a home advisor contractor gets the job or not

Contractor shoes up to bid on a job and it looks like a Walmart parking lot with so many contractors referred by the same company.. HomeAdvisor...they make all the money and could care less if they hurt or inhibit the initial three assigned contractors by sending the lead to multiple contractors exceeding the 2-3 lead agreement originally entered into.

This is a very true scam they do hook you up with some leads periodically but a lot of the leads are not real and true and people are just scouting for jobs to be done but you still have to pay Home Advisor to give advice to people even if they're not going to do the work so the only person that really gets paid and makes money is Home Advisor so just beware I don't believe they'll make your business I think they'll break your business and they have an excuse for everything great talking people work for them I've done really well with my business in the past without Home Advisor so please if you're a contractor don't use them there's no value

I've tried them also. Every lead is a gamble.

You call and leave a message or text or email and they don't respond half the time.

Then you have to call HA to try and get a refund because of a "No response". Way too time consuming to chase the leads and try to get refunds while still paying $28 a month for the privilege.

They called me as well - I am an architect so we are prohibited by law from getting brokered services. They failed two out of two - I looked up architects and the one they sang praised about and marketed above others was NOT EVEN LICENSED!!!

The second was an engineer from King of Prussia who just happened to have signed drawings he did not prepare (illegal), drawings which had the building permit revoked because they did not represent what was actually in the field. A high-level L&I Official basically laughed when I mentioned his name - they believe him incompetent. So, they spend tons of money on ads but are sloppy about verifications - seems they just want to get a piece of everyone's fee.

I avoid them all. People hire me because the word gets around if you do an excellent job for a fair fee.

I am out over $1,000 with these criminals I had to cancel my credit card my credit card company American Express understood and said if you did not receive a viable product or service we will not charge you so they cancelled all charges to them but Home Advisor without any warning because they know they are at fault turn me over to a collection agency

They get a call in for a paint job for example they will send that lead to as many contractors within a hundred miles sometimes as many as 25 or 30 and charge each contractor $100 they're making 2500 to $3,000 and they don't even care if we get a job

They are received from the contractor himself. HA asked for family, friends or neighbors. They don't care as long as they can post them. Doesn't even have to be someone the contractor did work for.

They're currently having their *** sued off in federal court for deceptive deceptive business practices. Employees are threatened with their jobs on a daily basis if they don't lie to the contractors. Fear tactics used constantly.

You are right you need to know how HA works you need to set your travel preferences how far you will go for work and refine your work preferences. and set a budget I set mine @ $100 per month @ first to see how things go.

I have made most of the money back that I spent but am still in the red a few hundred. most are false leads and the work that customers request on HA is not what they are always looking for home advisor is a business that is out for themselves and love to charge as much as they can you need to educate yourself on how to keep them on a leash and use them to your best interest I have made some great contacts through them and have made new customers through those contacts.

I have since dumped HA as I am not happy with the way they do business. and find thumbtack a much better lead Company as you only pay for the leads that contact you no fake leads you get a chance to sell yourself to a real person all I can say is you have to always have your interest first and do not rely on someone else to do it for you

Homeadvisor - Pissed

As a contractor I get between one and two cold sales calls from Home advisor every week. I tell them every single time to take me off their calling list but they won't do it.

They just called me from another area code and try to sell me something all over again.Home advisor has way too many customer complaints and bad reviews for me to be involved with any company of that nature. I'm tired of them wasting my time answering the phone in the course of my business day and wish they would just go away

They offer you a spend target. We set ours at $650.

When our credit card was charged over $4,300, homeadvisors said they spend target does not include the opportunities leads they sent. They have a bunch of different lead categories to confuse you and overcharge you.

They also sent us a bunch of leads that were not even in our covered area. When we called to complain they offered us a credit of $250!

Homeadvisor in Northeast Jefferson, Colorado - My $675.00 roof cleaning looks awful!

I contacted Home Advisor on January 19, 2019 to get the names of top-rated companies to clean the roof of my rambler. They gave me three companies, whom I contacted through their site.

The first company contacted me, listened to the details and quoted me $400.00 for the job. Then John Higgins, owner of ProKleen, contacted me. I talked to him on the phone, explained that we lease the house for our private preschool. I told him that our landlords live in another state, but that I was authorized to choose a contractor and negotiate the details.

I explained that I was concerned about a company NOT coming to see the job - that the issues might be worse and the price would go up, once they got there. John came to the house, looked at the roof - we have a shake roof on the rambler, and the patio has corrugated fiberglass that covers the length of the house. I t had a lot of debris, especially in the middle, which was causing the roof to leak. He also said he would get the debris off the roof of the small studio in the backyard for no extra charge.

He quoted me $600. I immediate went in and told my sister the quote and my landlord to tell her the quote. I have the emails to back this up. He explained that in order for the chemicals to work, the temp has to be above 50 degrees, and I asked if we should delay the job until it was warmer, and he said no.

We scheduled the cleaning for January 28 at 11:00. I explained that getting it done BEFORE nap time was best. I'm not unreasonable, and I understand that other jobs take longer than expected, but John was TWO HOURS LATE, and did not call to give me a heads up or ETA. When he showed up at 1:05, he was eating chips when he came to the door, and did not seem concerned that he was so late.

If he had called, and told me how late he was going to be, I would have rescheduled. He got there right at nap time, and I explained that the kids were just getting to sleep. He was not concerned at all, but I had talked about the fact that we had a school and that it was important to cause the kids and parents a lot of problems, since they come and go at staggered times. I asked him once he got started, if the moss and debris was worse than he thought, and he said no.

He also spent a lot of the job time by his work truck, talking on his cell phone. He did put tarps down, in some places, but there was a lot of debris to clean up when he left. He finally finished, I had a check ready, and asked him the price with the taxes. He quoted me $742.50.

He was nice enough to charge me the sales tax where his business is located, rather than the high sales tax we have in our county. I was very surprised, but I paid him and he left. He emailed me the invoice, and that's when I found out he had charged me $675.00, instead of the $600 he quoted me at the initial visit. I contacted him by email, questioning the amount, and saying he had quoted me $600.

He argued that he had gone right back to his office and written down $600- 700. I have had years of experience working with vendors and contractors, and I would NEVER leave a job quote open ended like that. We exchanged emails and talked about how late he was, did not give us a quote in writing; etc. All this is to say, I want a professional to come and look at my roof.

The moss was heavy on the shakes, and it's still there, but it's WHITE. The roof is free of the debris, but it does not look like it was professionally cleaned.

Homeadvisor - Stealing Your Money

In error, I signed up with this company to try and make my small business grow. Instead, they are sucking up all of my profits!!!

They would put a small company under real quick!! They've done all the complaints others have listed to us!! About 20 bogus leads to 1 good one, charging for leads that that you should get credits for-sucking money WEEKLY for these bogus leads, then charging a monthly fee, on top of a yearly fee-and they're very dishonest-told I was getting credit for a lead and they didn't give it to me. Deducted it from my card anyway.

I DO NOT RECOMMEND ANY BUSINESS SIGNING UP WITH THESE PEOPLE!! YOU'LL DEEPLY REGRET IT!!!!!!

Homeadvisor - Biggest Rip off for a business to join

Waste of time and money! Program is no explained thoroughly.

Leads are worthless. All they want is to charge your credit card on file and can't give you a good enough reason for charging it.

Homeadvisor - An atempt to rip me off

Requested quotes on a new Roof on a 1250 square foot house. I don't remember the company and the agent would not leave written quote.

He quoted me over $20,000.00 Then talked to his office and came down 10% if they could use my name at other appointments. The company claimed to be local but their home office was not here in Milwaukee but in Illinois. I found a local contractor who did the work himself for $4,500.00.

I was offended and believe they thought that they were dealing with an 80 year old man who could be taken advantage of. Be careful ,Home Advisor seems to be loose on their checking the reputation of who they give your name to.
