Original Complaint against Angie's List published at Scamity.com on 18-Aug-14 says, verbatim –
I am a small business in Nashville tn and advertised with angies list for 2 years straight and won there “super service award” 2 years straight and Angies list sent me all sorts of emails and hard copy certificates and stickers of those awards to encourage me to advertise those awards with all of my other advertising that I do including my website, so I put the awards on my website for my customers to see. Once I told Angies list that I was not going to continue advertising with them they sent me an email saying I need to take down the “super service award’s” as Angie’s List was revoking the awards due to that I am no longer advertising with them……this is just unethical all around. | I also had a bad run in with a big deal rep where he went into my Angies list business profile and expanded my area WITHOUT my Authorization so the rep could sell more big deals and make a larger bonus, when the big deals started to come into my company I noticed that there were a lot of these deals outside of my service area. So I called the rep on it and he said if the customer refunds the deal that I will not be able to advertise with Angies list again so I serviced as many as I could out of my area and lost money a lot of money due to the distance/time envoled in the discounted deals. Later I talked to another rep and they said what that big deal rep told me was not true at all and the big deal rep I dealt with was fired and they could not go into it. I have dealt with other advertising reps and Big Deal reps that say all sorts of things to get you to advertise with them that is not true and is unethical practices. There big deal reps will say just about anyting to get you to do a deal and there information that they provide to the service provider will not be accurate and it will be presented so the Big deal rep will sell a lot of big deals so they can make a larger bonus. | But what just happened with Angies list revoking the awards they gave to my company because I wont advertise with them is just down right wrong and unethical on there part! There is a lot more that Angies list does that is not good business practices to both its service providers and there members. Stay as far away from Angie’s List as you can both service providers and potential members. |
