I've paid for full access at Quazoo but I have suspicion that all the info you get from them is either fake or completely incorrect. All the leads I've got from them turned out to be completely useless... Don't waste your time and find another service that will help you.I hope you will listen to me.

    I can second this complaint. I paid for full access and was given the opportunity to buy leads from Quazoo.com that were marketed as "hot" real estate leads looking to buy or sell quickly. The leads provided all have a profile type picture you can view before purchasing them. I purchased one that had a yellow 911 carerra profile picture because I have a 911 carerra and thought we might have something in common. When I spoke to the lead on the phone and told her I liked her 911 carerra picture she had no idea what I was talking about and said she never created a profile and didn't even know what a 911 carerra was. LOL, quazoo.com is randomly assigning deceptive profile picture to leads to mislead it's customers. If that's not a scam I don't know what is.

    I wish I could get my $100 back and 30 hours worth of time chasing useless leads. Avoid this company at all costs

    I completely agree with the foregoing. Qazzoo uses typical bait and switch fraud tactics. When you sign up you are told "You are guaranteed 100% correct contact information or your money back." (I have that promise in writing.) Then when their leads all turn out to have absolutely no correct information and you request a refund based on their guarantee they tell you they do not give refunds. These guys have already been fined by the Maryland Attorney General for fraudulent business practices (http://www.oag.state.md.us/Press/2007/092807.htm). If you are considering signing up with them, don't. If you have already signed up with them, found their "leads" to be worthless (you will), and been refused a refund, file complaints with the Maryland Attorney General and the Federal Trade Commission.

    348 BS leads over 5 Months $500.00 later and a large amount of hours on the phone. This is a one of the many companies this is on the list of SCAMS, Realtor more on the side of new Realtor are getting lie to and sold leads that are not real. I have every lead that they sent and researched a large number of them. Will report back when I have a the report to file with the Oklahoma Attorney General for fraudulent business practices. Don't wast your money on this company you would have better luck knocking on doors to get business.

    I will attest to the same issues many others have had. I talked to Jim Buffington who was very nice, in all honesty and he gave me a trial of 35 lead purchases, which i used about 20 or so. most ended up being outright fakes, although they claim they are all checked for fake issues. I'd say a fake phone # is a good marker. A few turned out to be real people, and admitted to joining sites that Qazzoo gets their leads from. One already had a realtor for several weeks, another was a doctor seething mad he was getting soooo many calls, yet Qazoo says only 4 get their leads. Another said he had no interest in buying a home.

    One asian girl (sounded too young to buy anything) wanted to buy a house for investments, although none turned out to be anything more than a waste of time. Now, to be completely fair and objective, when i talked to jim, he said keep trying and if it doesn't work i'll give you a complete refund, and when the refunded 'leads' never appeared in my account and i wrote again, he simply said he'd refund my full purchase, $99, and close my account. We'll see if i get the refund. But I have a feeling they refund a lot of people!

    Sorry, to say. I fell for the same lines!! I have contacted my credit card company and reported this scam to them. Hopefully,
    they can get my money back. If not, I guess I will chalk it up as a lesson learned. I had to cancel my card as well. I called
    Qazzoo today and told them I was reporting this issue to my card company and cancelled my card. When I told her about
    the fake leads she just said, "oh, my, I will have to let our marketing company know that bad leads are going to your territory."
    I also told her I wanted every bit of my information that is stored in their computers to be deleted. I went to that site before I
    agreed to sign up, did not check out what they do with my information until today. I think they are fishing for good leads by
    letting gullible Realtors like myself and evidently you all also, by letting us do their work for them. This is totally a scam. They
    were telling lies from the beginning by using people who have good computer and telephone manners!! I hope they get shut
    down.

    I am a new real estate agent and my company does not have floor time, , so i was online and joined this site. I was all ready and happy because I had found some leads and yea...i wasted about 2 months on this site, along with numerous phone and email hours for most of the "leads" to turn out to be real estate agents, or people who have no idea they were looking at homes. It has gotten me frustrated and i spend a good chunk of my reserved real estate budget depleted that ill have to get a second job now. Thanks Qazzoo...

    The Reason that it hasn't worked for you is because you are not good at sales and should find another field.. I can close at least one loan which means it will pay for an entire year and then some.. Yes you will get a lot of bogus leads that customers will leave, but some will leave correct info worth the money spent will profit about 20000 grand from it..

    it is alarming to hear all of these negative comments about Qazzoo.. To be completely honest, I am a realtor and I purchased their program some time ago and I must say there were a LOT of bogus leads but I would send them back and they would give me new ones at no charge and at the end I closed 2 deals from leads I got from Qazzoo so I will be returning to them, sometimes its not worth it guys but if you do the work...It will be...Best of Luck and I am sorry for everyone that got burned in the process..

    Best Regards

    I was told that I would receive 3 email within the next 15 mins. That was at 10:34 am 9/4/15 at 3:09 pm I called my bank. I called the number that they contacted me from and there was no answer and the message was not business like at all. I then called the 800 number, no answer and again it was not like a legitimate business. It is now 3:56 pm and still no email. Needless to say I am waiting on my bank to reverse the charge.
    Don't do it!!!

    I am not having a problem, it is a numbers game. Have you made 100 phone calls yet? Get 2 out of 100 and you have paid your fees for about 3 years! I just made 2 calls and got two legitimate prospects!

    I got suckered into this Qazzoo Scam. The "leads" they provided, if you could call them that were fabricated from cloned facebook pages. After calling them out and requested my money back they said no refund. I have made it my goal to run my big fat mouth enough so no one else gets caught up with this "business" and their FAKE "leads"

    I too fell for this scam. $400 and when I cancelled prior to the 30 days I was told I have VIP status which meant they were going to charge me $299 each month until the 90 days is up. Called my bank, cancelled my card and will call today to have it disputed. I'm a mortgage rep not a realtor and they told me these were great leads for me. Needless to say not one of the over 50 I paid for has even called or emailed me back. Yeah they give you new leads if you have a dud, but they are all tire kickers, clicking around curious as to what they can buy. Total SCAM.
