The CEO of the company suggested in an interview that they were building up their contractor list so they could enable auto scheduling. This means the customer purchases the service and schedules the job before you even lay eyes on the job. He called it their version of UBER. He also said there was lots of "hand holding" required to teach the contractors how to use their system.

There is a sales office here in KC, actually went to school with some of the sales guys that recruit new contractors. They definitely like to brag about how much money they are making off hard working contractors.

Tom Cheatham must be the one that sends out the fake calls that you get billed for...

Nice pimp toy though...

The C7 Vette is trying to ditch the Old Man Car reputation...

As others have mentioned.

DO NOT TRUST THEM, at all, anything they say.

Home advisor/service magic is like that little piece of goo that you find on the inside of a closet flange when replacing a 20 year old toilet.

I had leads active for about three weeks, 10 years ago. Beside them giving out leads to six other contractors when they said three max. They put my name and company on the web with their phone number, without my knowledge or permission.

I hope home advisor and angie find their way to the bottom of a water closet in section 8 housing, with the water turned off for 6 weeks, in Camden, NJ.

You gave them permission, you just weren't aware of it.
