How HomeAdvisor steals from contractors

This is how HomeAdvisor rips off contractors:

Someone puts in a bogus request for services.

They set up a voicemail box to capture all contractors information.

They send bogus telemarketers to contractors and sells their information elsewhere.

These types of leads are costing contractors thousands.

HomeAdviser needs to stop these business practices.

They are illegal and criminal.

The calls for fake leads and telemarketers becomes overwhelming at times, they will steal your money, waste your time and harvest all your information for malicious purposes.

They push down your website as far as possible so a real potential customer will find your company on HomeAdvisor before getting to your site.

Now they will sell that lead to you and a dozen others.

You would have to have rocks in your head for brains to even consider joining this FRAUDULENT company.

Homeadvisor - Quit calling me

I am a general contractor who gets these calls, Hey, Gladys I am going to make you rich, I immediately say who is this because someone I don't know doesn't get to act like they are a long lost friend. When they finally tell me they are Home Advisor I say thank you but I do not need your service.

The next thing I know I get asked personal questions like How much business do you do? what was last years take? How do you get customers? Then I get mad and say do not call again.

First of all I do not owe you an explanation of why I don't want to do business with you. You are a voice on the phone.

Really? So my new strategy is going to be a response like "what color is your underwear so they can flag my business as kooky and quit calling".

Homeadvisor - Bad leads, business practices and terrible customer service

While talking to this company about the poor quality of leads and my company being charged for leads on services we do not provide, I told them that I did not want to renew unless I received a credit for the leads. While I was waiting for the response, they sent my account to collections and added the annual renewal fee.

When I called to talk with them about it they said, "sorry, it's out of our hands once it is sent to collections."

This company is terrible. I will never consider working with them again and would caution any small business from using the service they offer

False leads, not refunding unreturned calls from leads and other leads turned out to be people not to even have the money to buy materials, let alone, do the projects.

Homeadvisor - Had a spend target of $650 / was charged $4,300.00

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 - Did not request anything but they had an order

Did not request services but was solicited daily for services. I was happy when I realized I could save time by deleting the voicemails on my phone on my drive home everyday since it was a daily exercise and could be 3-10 per day. Never owned a home, just listed my mom's home on Zillow for 2 weeks over a year ago.

I was NOT told I pay for leads sent to me. When I signed up, I was told I only pay for leads that I call.

Customer service basically told me to go pound sand, no refunds or credit for these uncalled leads! I purposely didn't call certain leads because HomeAdvisor sent so many to me.

Dude... it says in the voice recording at closing and I quote "you will be billed for every lead we send to you.

Do you agree with these charges? Press 1 to continue." You were told and you agreed bro

I constantly received bogus leads people whom never responded back after multiple calls and emails I requested credit only to be told it doesn’t fit the requirements for a credit and I’m quoting “ when a customer puts in a request for a contractor we send the lead out based on there search and if the customer doesn’t contact you it’s not our fault we can make the customer call you there for it is not eligible for a credit” your bank account is the only thing that matters to HomeAdvisors nothing else

Charged for leads I did not request

I have been a member of HomeAdvisor for years. In the beginning it was a different company.

In the last couple of years they changed their method of doing business and appear to be after money. We told them we did not want any leads and they continue to send them via internet where they instantly charge us.

Unless you are watch closely you could find yourself paying for leads you did not even get a chance to call on. WOULD NOT SUGGEST USING THEM.
