we joined angie's list because of a disastrous experience we had with our kitchen remodel. after joining, we were looking through angie's list and found our lousy contractor listed.
he had changed the name of his company but everything else was the same. appalled, we immediately contacted angie's list to let them know and were told sorry, but he was recommended by others (probably family members or friends). they had no intention of removing his name from their list and were unapologetic about giving his name out to others.
angie's list is a phony organization and completely misrepresents itself to the public. they're clearly in it for money only.
