Angies List review in Aberdeen, Maryland: Autorenewal SCAM
I too just fell victim to the AngieScam. I never authorized a renewal and never signed up for auto renewal. They used my PayPal credentials to "send" themselves a subscription renewal payment. No contact to me, and no notification whatsoever! I had to resort to chat to cancel my account and get an immediate refund of the fraudulent transaction. I have opened a case with Paypal so they are aware of this scam. Be advised, if you sign up for Angies List, They WILL take your money! I too fell victim of the reviews on this site, I guess they sell their glowing endorsements to the highest bidder, I was not happy with the contractor I used, and my review of them was deleted within 24 hours.
Reason of review
Poor customer service
Angies List review in Rockville, Maryland: Angie's LIST-complained about contractor- they removed my bad review
it isn't that simple: contractor fixed by roof. it rained and the leak got worse after he was there. I called several times (4) and left messages. No response at all. Meanwhile ceiling got significantly worse from subsequent rains. I sent an "F" report to Angie's List (AL). Complained to Angie's List. They got contractor to refund my money- it didn't help since ceiling was in bad shape and i had to now hire another contractor to fix roof and would have a big repair to the ceiling. AL removed my review and refused to let me post another one, saying issue was resolved because my money was refunded. it wasn't resolved- ceiling was ruined. People need to know contractor is bad but AL won't post the review.
Paid For Submitting Reviews on Angies List
After joining Angies List I kept getting email requests to evaluate companies I had never done business with. Finally I received an email saying that Angies List would pay me $25.00 if I posted reviews on at least three auto repair shops in my area. I complied (one I hadn't done business with for years) and received my $25.00 Visa card. I recently read where Angies List has reported significantly lower revenue and profit than expected. I believe that the Angies List "business model" is not being executed in a truthful, honest way, and would recommend that neither businesses nor customers are getting treated with honesty and professionalism. I believe we will see the demise or takeover of AL within several years, as other methods of getting honest opinions of businesses emerge.
Angies List review in Rockville, Maryland: Gas Fireplace inspection by Chimney. com
They pulled a bait and switch...Angie's List doesn't vet any of the companies they "promote" through their website. Here's the response I received from them when I complained about the company and how Chimney.com tried to sell us an entirely new gas fireplace - the one we have is only 3 years old! Thank you for your email. I am sorry for your negative experience. Angie’s List is a forum for members to look for service providers and to read their reviews based on member feedback. We cannot back the quality of their work because we are not rating the companies. Members provide those ratings. We allow companies to offer coupons if they pass a background check, have an A or B rating, and are in good standing with Angie’s List. If a company can no longer meet those eligibility requirements, their ability to run Deals is revoked. I am going to issue you a refund for your membership to help make up for the trouble. You will still have access to your membership through January 2017. Their answer to avoiding any legal issues is to refund your money!

Angies List review in Pasadena, Maryland: Angie's List
I used Angie's List once. I was not happy with the service I received (rug cleaning) and was called several times to write a review and then called for questions about the review. I assumed (shame on me) that I would be notified when it was time to renew. Then I saw a renewal fee on my credit card. So I contacted them. Another hassle. Have to pay another year's service for nothing because I didn't contact them the day before. They are sending me a notice in June 2014 to notify me 30 days in advance of my renewal date. Whoop-de-do.

I wanted to cancel my Angie's List subscription. Went online, and was forced to go thru a long 'dont leave us' chat exchange: Amy C: Hi, my name is Amy C. How may I help you? Tim T: Please cancel my subscription Amy C: I am sorry to hear you wish to cancel...

Angies List review in Baltimore, Maryland: Angieâ€™s List is not an unbiased consumer advocate
In my opinion, Angie's List is a scam that only wants A-rated reviews on their website. As a subscriber, in only two instances did I give an F-rating to a company regarding their services. In both instances, the input was included on Angie's List website, but for some unknown reason, my negative feedback were later removed from the site. One contractor contacted me ten months (!) after my initial input to Angie's List and specifically mentioned they had seen my negative comment on the site. I decided to update my initial feedback only to discover on both occasions that my input was missing. What I also discovered for this company I rated was that previous ratings of Bs and Cs were now replaced with all A-ratings. Don't waste your money subscribing as Angie's List is certainly not an unbiased consumer advocate.
