Angies List in Anaheim, California - Selling my phone number to contractors

I am convinced Angie's List sold my number to local contractors. Prior to joining Angie's List I never got calls from local contractors. After joining I get approximately 2-3 per day. They are evasive when they ask how I got their number and are quick to confirm when I ask if they are on Angie's List. Every single one of them are on Angie's List as they enthusiastically tell me. They only ever ask for ME by name, not my husband (Angie's List account is in my name). This never happened before my Angie's List subscription. Angie's List denies they sell numbers but I don't believe it. It's too much to be coincidental. I have never hired a contractor in my life, let alone one from Angie's List, yet they now call me all. the. time. It's legal because they say they have a prior relationship with me (which is a lie). There's no way to stop it. I deeply deeply regret joining Angie's List.

I am getting the same types of phone calls. I know they have to be coming from Angie's List based on the form of name I signed up for the service and that is the same name that is being asked for over the phone (by a contractor in my area). Truly offensive.

I'm not pissed but you should all read the agreement before signing up. They will renew by getting the new credit card expiration date or the replacement card number in case you need to cancel a card. This makes me think that I will not sign up for Angie's List. Also...

Angies List in Whittier, California - False advertising

Update by user Dec 05, 2014

As a follow up to my November 5 post, I tried the same Google search and got a similar link from Angies List, claiming that "59 Hypnotherapy are in Whittier." I didn't bother to log in to check the locations. My conclusion stands: Angie's List may be okay for plumbers or painters, but probably not good for niche service providers.

Original review posted by user Nov 05, 2014

I searched for hypnotherapist in my city using Google, and a link to Angie's List came up. The page read "57 Hypnotherapy are in [city]" and "4 Hypnotherapy in [city] are top rated." Well, I knew there weren't 57 hypnotherapists in my city, but I figured they would list some who were in nearby cities. After paying both the basic membership fee and an additional fee to use the healthcare list, I discovered that most of the listings were very far away -- too far to be practical for visiting, say, once a week. In addition, the list of "top rated" people included an acting coach. That acting coach may use hypnosis in coaching, but that doesn't make him/her a hypnotherapist. Angie's list may be useful if you're looking for a house painter or plumber, but I recommend you do NOT sign up just to use it to search for more specialized services.

Angies List in Irvine, California - Angis list is a HORRIBLE COMPANY

They try to come across as one of the most trustworthy and honest. First of all it is not easy to find service providers close to where I live. I might get a lead but in the 40-50 Miles radius. I can do better than that. If you want to cancel the service the real pleasure will come to your way. No e-mail option for cancellation fax or phone only... After 25 minutes waiting on the phone I gave up and called my credit card company to get rid of their charge. By the way I have already canceled the service less than a month after I signed up for it.. Horrible...Waste of time......

You gave it less then a month? Not too bright.

Any advertising takes time to show results, anyone knows that. cancelling charges or reversing charges on a written contract is a breach of contract by you. Expect to be challenged in court on the breached contract.

Again, another deadbeat contractor unwilling to honor a contract or pay his bills. Real shocker there huh?

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 in Los Angeles, California - Unlicensed contractors

Subscribed to Angies list to find that many of the highest rated contractors where not even licensed. These people are being bragged about and are operating illegally. I called Angies list and told them I wanted to cancel my subscription because of this and they said it was not there job to require Lic.#s in the reviews. Then had trouble getting them to cancel and refund for the renewal. I said they could at least recommend to people to check contractors lic.#s with the contractors lic. board and they again told me they are not required to do that.

I wish I had read this first. I ordered some concrete steps from a company in Lakeland Florida called Flrida Precast Concrete.

I have a $200 deposit to the owner, Irv Manroel. That was my mistake, he never delivered the steps and refused to give my money back. This company was listed with Angies List. I reported Florida Precast Concrete to the Better Business Bureau.

The company refused to respond to the either. Learned a hard lesson.

I'm really sorry to hear about your experience. In fact, Angie's List does routinely audit licensing information and we take unlicensed contractors very seriously.

We've published several articles in The Angie's List Magazine encouraging our members to always verify license and insurance before they hire.

I'll be sure to pass along your feedback to prevent this from happening again. If you'd like to email me the name of the company, please do so at casandram (at) angieslist (dot) com.
