HomeAdvisor formerly ServiceMagic / Bogus leads- SCAM

1 Chicago, IL, United States Review updated:

HomeAdvisor, formerly ServiceMagic WASTED MY MONEY. I am a contractor and signed up with them a couple months ago, only to find that most my time was being spent submitting "Credit Requests" for bogus leads they charged me for, instead of me going out and servicing clients.

After submitting "credit requests" for a number of bogus lead, they did not want to refund my money. I fought with them for a whole month and they came up with reasons as to why they weren't refunding my money. After I disputed this with my credit card company, they now sent it to collections!

In my opinion, HomeAdvisor is a HORRIBLE SERVICE. It was nothing but a money pit for me, NEVER AGAIN.
