This is the second time I have tried as a professional to use this site. I m a little bit cautious on how real the gig offers that I receive in my email box , how legit they really are. I also find it a bit shady that 35 people i responded to , not one of them even...

Steve I have found that only 1 in 40 are legitimate. The rest are flakes just wasting our time and money with no intention of hiring anyone or reading any profiles.

Anonymous Unfortunately you didn't do your homework to fully check out the contractor and you probably went with the bottom dollar bid. Thumbtack is geared towards people who want botto...

I spent $30.00 dollars on app credits. I submitted as many quotes as possible, well within the budgetary constraints of the job requests. I received zero jobs. Now i keep getting all these requests that I would need purchase more credits to quot on. You know $30.00 is...

I bid on two jobs with phone requests after bidding. I did not receive a phone number. Quotes seem to be generated by a computer robot. Customes requests don't always seem accurate and credits they charge are based on customers many times vague information. Is there...

Thumbtack should be sued. There is no doubt 100% FOR SURE- we as clients of Thumbtack are paying to quote fake jobs. Their are many people and even the competition posting non existing jobs to waste your money and line the pockets of the CEO's and investors of...

Thumbtack is useless. You can buy a lead which never turns into a commitment. No one will ever respond from the leads. I doubt the clients are vetted in anyway, thus you spend money on a sure loss!! It would not surprise me if Thumbtack comes under a federal...
