Angies List - ANGIE'S LIST & HOME ADVISOR Are Scamming the consumer's and the Company's that advertise with them.
I have been paying for a fixed cost membership for advertising on ANGIE'S LIST since 2006 also HOME ADVISOR INC. since 2011 for lead purcheses.
A lot of money for their service unaware that and have not been notified of the fact's. That ANGIE'S LIST has been acquired by IAC/INTERACTIVECORP that also owns HOME ADVISOR formally SERVICE MAGIC same scam but they changed their name also in an effort to bilk the public. I have spent alot of wasted time,phone calls,money also a lot of potential customers. By paying these company's lot's and lot's of money under false pretenses.
This is a multi-million dollar scam, that a lot of consumers and small business's are victims of and are not aware they are being RIPPED OFF. They are currently being sued under several law suit's not limited to the SAN FRANCISCO DISTRICT ATTORNEY and class action LAW SUIT'S in several states as well. Their latest scam is they are double dipping their advertiser's.
When the consumer goes on ANGIE'S LIST look for a certified accredited business or company, they start getting call from HOME ADVISOR CUSTOMER'S AND billed on their credit card for lead fee's that range from $12.00 to over $100.00 depending on the service they are looking for. ANGIE'S LIST is charging for the lead's that businesses are paying for, that they are supposed to receive under their fixed cost membership and billed through HOME ADVISOR and don't even know it.
