Thumbtack - Check this out ...

It may be a coincedence but I kinda doubt it ....Albany and Brooklyn are like two hours from each other ...

I find it hard to believe that someone with the same name asked from two totally different places... Within fifteen minutes of each other . And both dates are the 3rd..... I also saw a quote for wedding makeup on a tuesday morning in Nov...

That is highly unlikely ... It is not even a holiday .. I have become very cautious with this company lately and now I feel even more uneasy...

I didn't realize that costemers were being scammed until I came to this site ...I am MUA and leads are how I find jobs and they are taking advantage ...

I got two requests for a graduation party; both within hours of each other, same person, same location, but one was for a $100.00 per person plated dinner; another was for a $16 - $20.00 drop-off. I contacted Thumbtack for clarification and got back an email telling me the correct way to bid on a party. I don't think they ever actually read requests for help; they skim it and send out an automated email that rarely touches on the problem but always assured how much they value input from professionals -- were that true, they'd take the time to read an email and identify the question being asked.
So as strange as these two requests were, I responded to the lower budget one, heard back from the customer who is leaving on a trip, wants a menu and to talk as soon as she gets back. Sounds legit (sort of get a feeling for this after catering 32 years). There ARE really clients out there but getting harder to find legit ones, and I guess I'm on my own to figure out why there were two such different requests from the same lady.
Your situation was even stranger than mine.
