Angies List Rip OFF - Zip Code Search

I live in southern california and i own properties (landloard) of some condos in Las Vegas. I needed a appliance repair company in Las Vegas. I signed up and paid the year subscription fee. At no time was there a disclousure that the only listings i was going to have access to was Los Angeles. When i wanted to get the las vegas listings it prompted me to pay another 20.00. what a ripoff. there is no disclousre that your stuck with the location you signed up as your primary address. I would be down to be a plaintiff in a class action lawsuit.

Angies List review in Chicago, Illinois: It felt like I was talking to a used car salesman!!

My experience was the same as buying my first car. Angie's List was speaking to me as if I was an *** even though I was asking questions. Its amazing this company has a way for us (consumers) to throw companies under the bus but no one to express our frustration in regards to them. How convenient.. When I asked to speak to his boss he ( the Angie's List sales guy) didn't want to give me the name or contact at first but finally did after 10 min of arguing and made it clear that his boss was going to feel the same way as him and that I'm wasting my time. Scam artist!! Stay away from Angie's List! Also fyi Angie's List takes money from companies to clear their names and make these companies look like angels.

There will never be a truly legitimate review site on the internet and for anyone to think that a paid membership site like Angie's list will be any different is wrong. Today I joined Angie's List and after I paid my money I realized that I had only paid for...

I agree that Angie's list is awful. At the time we were not knowledgeable about the scam that Angie's list is.

We hired Butel Contruction who did an absolutley horrible remodeling job on our home.

Yet they pay Angie's list an enormous amount for advertising and get great "reviews." I noticed the bad reviews are BURIED on the website. You really have to dig to get to them.

I would not recommend Angie's list or Butel Construction to anyone!

Angies List review in Los Angeles, California: Misrepresented the advertizing service. deifite rip off

it is to many details to write here, just know that they are unscrupulos and a definite ripoff company. they verbally promised that there service would generate lots of business (generated absolutely no business) and it didnt come close to other internet companys (at 1/3 the price) who you dont make you have to sign a 1 year contract with either. once in they have their claws into you and will not let go. i would NEVER use the service to advertize or to find a company, EVER. and i am currently taking them to small claims court for the shady practices

Angies List review in Newark, New Jersey: Angie's list

there is a business on Angie's List that I have a judgement against for fraud. When I contacted them they said I had to join to file a complaint. I complained to them about this and they basically said too bad. My friend who notified me of the information is a member and posted a complaint for me The business is still on the site. Sadly people trust Angie's List but obviously the site is for profit and not for people. Angie's List is a scam. The business is Lleshi Construction and I won a lawsuit for both fraud and return of money for poor construction work on my home.

Angies List review in Redmond, Washington: Angie's List violates your privacy and provides useless information

I have subscribed to Angie's List for over a year. In that time, I have not found any good service providers on the list although I have used the list to look for landscape designers, appliance repair people, electricians, handymen and painters. All of the providers I contacted from the list quoted prices that were much higher than service people I got through referrals from neighbors. To add insult to injury, Angie's List will give out your name and contact information to any service provider who requests it, particualry those for whom you write a negative report. When I questioned Angie's List about that policy, they said that both sides of the story were more important than my privacy. The net effect of this policy is to undermine any credibility the recommendations on the list might have as people are dissuaded from writing negative reviews for fear of retaliation and/or harrassment from the businesses reviewed. Bottom Line: Angie's List is a tool of business, designed to make money off of people's lack of information about quality service providers. They throw their members under the bus.

Why I cant search services beyond my primary zipcode? I thought part of my membership when I signed up, which was a selling point, was that I will be able to use angie's services for all my properties that I've own. Else it would be no point for me to sign up...

Angie's list is a scam, pure and simple. All you are doing is paying good money to read what a bunch of dopes living in your area think about various services.

Purely subjective opinions and mostly worthless. Like reading the review on Amazon.com where you have a bunch of people who say business A is wonderful while others say it is terrible.

All you can do is talk to friends and neighbours. Why would you pay money for something like this???

I have had a similar experience. I was fortunate to be able to take a harassing phone call by a contractor and he have his name on the recording after I had informed him I was recording the call.

People using angies list paying high prices with remodeling/contractors

I own a contracting /remodeling business and I am not on Angies list. Time after time I meet a customer that has told me what their price quotes were from contractors they found on Angies List. HIGH! I don't have low prices as I have one of the largest remodeling showrooms in wisconsin and we are licensed in all trades from plumbing to contracting. We have fair legimate pricing that customers look for as well as an impeccable reputation with BBB, Before you rely on some list where consumers have to pay, just to be part of it, find a local contractor/remodeler and check them out with BBB. They'll give you info for FREE! Good luck.

Energydust, Watch the 20/20 report on the BBB, they're ripping off everyone too. Pay to play, the executives there make hundreds of thousands of dollars charging for A rating, don't pay and get an F. The world is full of crooks talk to people who have used a contractor, word of mouth is the only way!

The free estimate was outrageous - and the estimator kept rejecting what I wanted and put in his ideas which were fast to do, ugly to see. He felt my resisting so he never returned.

"I am on Angie's list" has no value.

Get a recommendation from Home Depot, Ace, anywhere else. Don't trust advertisements - ever.
