I have received millions of "customers's" requests from Thumbtuck and NONE of them have ever contacted me. Looks like Thumbtuck uses fake request and just wants me to purchase credit, so I can submit a quote to the "customer". As soon as I submit a single quote, I...

After spending hundreds on Thumbtack aka "Dumbtack" and responding to approximately a hundred "leads"... almost 80% seem fake; either other pros who are fishing, an algorithm, or random people. I do wills and trusts. I have been doing it for years. The response timing,...

Thumbtack

I hired a housecleaner by the name of Hilda Martinez. She was very sloppy. Came only three times and then stopped showing up without any notice.

STAY AWAY FROM THUMBTACK. There are scammers posing as pro and Thumbtack don't care. We hired T&S Tiling through Thumbtack, who said he has 15 years experience remodeling bathroom. He pretty much butchered our bathroom, took our downpayment of 2,000$, and did not...

Thumbtack will rip you off. I can write a review on any company, if I used the company your not. If the send you an e-mail and you don't respond in 48 hours your account is shut down and all the money you have in your account for leads is not refunded. That is theft by...
