New Reviewer

Angie's List is a scam. After your company gets added they contact you and tell you that your company has been added and reviewed. If you'd like to have an enhanced listing you can pay us for that.

They specifically outlined to one of my vendors that what they would be paying for is good reviews. They achieve this for you in two ways. One is by paying people to write the reviews, the other is by using telemarketers who call current consumer members and pressure them to write good reviews for your company.

So the whole "we are acting in our members best interests" thing is bull! They have one interest in mind: their own.

Angie's List is not honest... you can never know if the reviews you're reading are true or not.

Angie list said they would help with my cleaning company by providing me with clients and all I had to do is pay 100 start up fee but once i paid the fee they sent a fake background check link and scammed me out of 100 dollars people will do anything for money i learned my mistake and hate them for that and hope they get punished soon.


Reviews on tradesmen are many times 4-5 Years old and often the company is long gone. Very unreliable.


Do not do 1 thing with Angie’s list!!!! I went to look for something and did not fill out the form, as they wanted a phone number.

I literally closed it out and they called me just a few minutes later on my cell number!!!!

How did they even get that information? I never gave it to them!!!!


I completely agree. DO NOT POST WITH ANGIE'S LIST!!!!! Angie's list is a complete scam!


I wanted to contact Angies List to file a complaint on a contractor who left a job unfinished after he got the check for the full price of the job. Could find no place to register the complaint or even give a negative review!

So.....won't trust Angies List to do what it advertises it will do EVER AGAIN!. NO THANKS, ANGIE!


After looking at several reviews on Angie's List I am pretty sure that they add fake reviews to their site. While it looks like they leave the negative reviews, they bury them with tons of fake positive reviews. From years of dealing with Amazon products, I've learned to completely ignore 5 star reviews because most of them are fake.


I think ANGIES LIST is a spin off scam co of TRUMP! total waste of time - ALL i am going to say/waste bc I ain't wasting more time typing crap about this BS svc: ANGIE.

if the below (from ME, to contractors on ANGIES LIST) ain't detailed enough what I want done..THERE'S A PROB and it ain't ME. Anglie can blow it. Contractors listed by "ANGIE" either didn't show up, didn't reply, or worse.. One contractor did show up - only to say, "i don't don't do this kindda' stuff".

Did you really just blame angies list on Trump? You idiots are everywhere!


That's what I thought too


Some ppl are really mo**ns....Blame Trump bc Angie's list sucks?!


looney tunes!




We had a new furnace installed, the sales guy told me Angies list gave their company a high rating & review and they have never been contacted or ever talked with anyone at Angies list so they have no idea how they got the review, they didn't even know they were on there. Angies list is just tricking and scamming people....I see a class action lawsuit on the near future


Yes just like Yelp. Angies list told us for $3600 a year they would take care of all the reviews.

All professionally written by reviewers in our state. All fake of course.


I looked on Yelp for a plumber to fix a waterheater that I could not get to start. They asked for the make, then told me to order over $100 worth of parts because they don't keep them in stock.

It turns out on that model of water heater, you have to hold the button down for about 30 seconds after the pilot light lights. Luckily I looked up the problem on youtube before paying a ton of money for something I don't need.

I can only imagine they would have charged me another $100 or more to come out and fix the problem, probably without even "troubleshooting" it first. It looks like all reviews for anything online are suspect and should not be trusted!


I had a water problem in my basement and I went on Angie's list to find a reputable repair company as it turned out the repair company had already been into give me an estimate which was way lower than when I went through Angie's list and as it turned out they had a terrible reputation


Companies get to pick and chose what reviews are posted. I know this for a FACT!


I am on the customer end..and joined Angie's list. Started looking for information on bogus reviews because two veterinarians in my area that are deplorable(both from personal experience and other people consider them the worst), get high ratings on Angie's list. This makes me very suspicious.


On the money. This is a business model that will eventually fail, but for now they're scamming people right and left, under the guise of helping consumers and good companies. They really should be ashamed.


Who would AL recommend? A good and reliable contractor who did not pay them or a bad and unreliable one who paid them?
