When I first joined Angie's List it was for a discounted fee, because I was new to the area and looking at many doctors. After I joined, I found out that my membership did not include the "health" lists. So I contacted them to cancel my subscription, because I had no...

Angies List in Rockville, Maryland - Angie's commercial

Please please remove that Godawful commercial with the monster man standing in door say "Yes, Yes". *** and always comes on when I am trying to eat. Please remove this. I would never subscribe to Angie's because of this commercial alone. pLEASE PLEASE REMOVE IT] I USED TO WORK FOR AN ADVERTISING AGENCY, SECOND LARGEST AT THE TIME AND WE WOULD NEVER HAVE USED A COMMERCIAL SUCH AS THIS CRAZY THING. There are no positive ads anymore promoting a product. It is as if doom has spread throughout the universe and the *** agencies keep putting negative ads on TV. Hope someone reads this and gets it to corporate offices - advertising department. PLEASE!!!!!!!

I first signed up for the advertising service. Then, after not receiving any business, they try to sell me something else. I find out that my account manager had lied to me and did not even send out or go through the list of customers that i had sent him for reviews....

Fair warning, you will find the renewal charge on your account, even years later. Best to just cancel the credit card or bank account. This is the worst rip-off company that I have encountered.

Angies List Review Listing Review from Lansdowne, Maryland

Details

Update by user Apr 24, 2016

They called us numerous times about paying them to enhance our listings, when we refused they removed all of our positive reviews the next day.

Original review posted by user Apr 23, 2016

Complaint wasn't resolved. It's obvious if you don't agree to sign expensive contracts to enhance your listings or to obtain front page views Angie's List will remove all your good reviews but leave any negative reviews to be seen. I'm sure A/L excuse would be some reviews are filtered or due to website maintenance issues. Isn't it strange that companies that PAY TO PLAY don't have their positive reviews removed. So consumers that PAY yearly fees to find unbiased reviews should also start requesting their subscription fees be refunded as the reviews are not legit. Maybe this will be the next class action suit against Angie's List. They lost $ 2.8 million on their credit card fraud case.

Angies List scams are known to most people but they are getting so desperate they offer free subscriptions now. Why join when the reviews you read are done by Angies List reps and paid for by the businesses.

I want to see real reviews not ones that are bought and paid for.

They are just like Yelp. Lawsuits are in the works right now here in maryland against their unethical and fraudulent practices

Angies List will bother you with phone calls everyday telling you your site has had numerous views and you should advertise with us for front page views but its strange with all the new views not one call comes from Angies List. They do the same thing Yelp does.

Unethical practices.

They have 100s of complaints online about them ripping off small businesses for $1000s in ad fees which result in NO NEW CALLS> Stay away from Angies List. They will clean you out of every dollar they can get from you.

Angie's list said they are making changes to their website which might be why reviews aren't viewable. We called Angie's list and asked them about this and they said they make changes constantly to their site and that wouldn't have anything to do with problem so again they make up any lie to cover their unethical extortion practices just like Yelp is doing. I thing it's time to get businesses together for a class action suit.

We received numerous phone calls and emails from A/List that we had received positive reviews and we could be moved to 1st page views for large advertising fees. We explained we couldn't afford it at this time. A customer who placed a review told us they had removed all of our reviews. So this site doesn't offer unbiased reviews to the consumers. Unethical and fraudulent practices. The same thing Yelp is being sued for. We are adding a special section on our website to let customers know we don't deal with Angie's list or Yelp due to their unethical practices and that you must pay for reviews.

Angies list is another scam just like yelp. Their stock prices are dropping every week. Class action suits are being filed. Thanks to all who have stood up to them. A/list scammed a friend who owns a small business out of over $21,000. they didn't get any business at all. They calls us, text us, email us offering to get us positive reviews for $3600. We just added into our website we don't use yelp or ALIST due to their unethical practices and asked all of our customers to stop using them. Who will join us. We also added the links to yelp sucks n consumer review sites.

Angies List in Gambrills, Maryland - Scam to be Spammed

When I signed up for Angie's list, I was extremely disappointed. Rather than showing me businesses in my area where I could find goods and services, I found out that it was nothing more than an marketing ploy for large companies to continually hound me for business for which I had paid an annual fee. Every single day I was being targeted for things I never wanted and did not ask for, and that includes their never ending "specials" that were so not special. I ended my year's prescription within the first month, and made double sure that they would NOT charge me for another annual fee at year's end. No, I will not be recommending Angie's list to anyone. Angie's list is as exclusive as your Yellow Pages. The Buyer's Guide and Craigslist, have been much better sources of finding local contractors.

Anyone who subscribed to Angie's List needs to request a refund as their so called unbiased reviews are bought and paid for. A class action suit is in the works to refund millions of subscribers in Maryland. They are working with the same lawyers that just won a $3 million judgement against Angie's List.

Angies List in Olney, Maryland - Offers for services are scams.

Angies List sends daily emails with offers for services. These are just scams - bait for targets to get caught in traps for very high priced, sometimes unnecessary work. The money paid for these offers is a full loss. I paid Angies List for credible advice. I receive back only their scams. The offer said $100 for a several hours of grouting. I needed grouting for an area at front door. Contractor came and insisted I needed over $1000 work which was as much as the original entire walk including stones only a few years ago. The contractor to whom I paid the $100 has done nothing.

Angies List in Hyattsville, Maryland - Angie's Scam

I have recently moved and am looking for a painter. I looked at Craig's List, but no one stood out. So, I thought "Aha! I'll try Angie's List." Paid my money (reluctantly) and tried searching for a painter. The search was not going well. Since I was there, I thought that now that I'm here I will check out chiropractors. Whoa! More money. Already spooked by the auto renewal, I saw this as another trick. Granted, not large sums, but I bet it adds up. I think the whole charging thing is a scam. I'll stick to doing the research myself through exploring the web and word of mouth. I did get a refund, but only after they offered to exchange services and charge me 50% for the dropped service. Difficult to explain, but reassured me about the scam - ness of the List.
