This is the second time I have tried as a professional to use this site. I m a little bit cautious on how real the gig offers that I receive in my email box , how legit they really are. I also find it a bit shady that 35 people i responded to , not one of them even...

I totally agree that the offers coming to my box are fake. I have the BEST PRICES for my job in a 20 mile radius and none of the people I send a quote to ever contact me? That...

I have found that only 1 in 40 are legitimate. The rest are flakes just wasting our time and money with no intention of hiring anyone or reading any profiles.

Unfortunately you didn't do your homework to fully check out the contractor and you probably went with the bottom dollar bid. Thumbtack is geared towards people who want botto...

I bid on two jobs with phone requests after bidding. I did not receive a phone number. Quotes seem to be generated by a computer robot. Customes requests don't always seem accurate and credits they charge are based on customers many times vague information. Is there...

I am a photographer and I have sent out like 50 quotes and not a single person has contacted me

Thumbtack should be sued. There is no doubt 100% FOR SURE- we as clients of Thumbtack are paying to quote fake jobs. Their are many people and even the competition posting non existing jobs to waste your money and line the pockets of the CEO's and investors of...
