I feel like I just wasted $50. There are several leads but nothing amounts to anything. Out of the several that I responded to, I got two people that responded and nothing from those. I began to wonder if it was a scam. After reading these reviews, I feel like my...

Thumbtack Leads Review

#911408
*** Thimbtack, there a rip off. I spent 40 bucks just to send my quote out to 5 people. Didn't get 1 call back. There a rip off, save your money, and if you do pay and get scammed, make sure you write a bad review so these douchebags go out of business. If I ever seen the owner in person I would kick him in the nuts until he gives my money back

Thumbtack allows their customers (or your competitors, they don't know and don't care) to look at up to 5 bids from people who do what you do within your area. My experience is that the first 2 or 3 businesses that signed on with Thumbtack to do that work will get any...

Yep Thumbtack sucks. I signed up, never added a single word to my profile yet received 70+ text messages in the first 2 hours. I smelled "Nigerian CL scam" right off but decided to give it a try. In the end, a 29 year old felony trespass conviction (from my...

In Los Angeles, Thumbtack is only for Piranhas. The 5 Bid Quote system is a joke. If I spend more than 10 seconds typing in a fee quote and NO description, I lose the chance to bid because 5 other sharks have thrown in any fee they come up with within seconds and...
