Wrongfully charged

On April 27, a Patricia L from Decatur replied to my inquiry about a job. I was charged a substantial fee for this lead, was never hired because the woman apparently didnt know exactly what she wanted and was unwilling to work with me regarding the money. Im not exactly certain of the dollar amount, but it was a little obnoxious. Thank you for your help in this

User's recommendation: Know exactly what you’re looking for and don’t waste a contractors time and money.

Leads issue

As a pro I have recently tried to contact Thumbtack directly, since I can no longer find a phone number to speak with a human, you try live chat, no one responds to the chat, even after several days!

Customer service

You keep saying you don't do that..... I put a card on set all my limits eat up as much money by charging me outrageous amounts for leads then lock me out when you've taken all my money. Now I can't speak with the leads I already paid for caused me to loose jobs! As much help as Thumbtack is you're also a hindrance!

Leads

Has anyone noticed that the amount of activity has slowed down? We are getting very little request, and I am comparing this to 2020 in September. Also, cannot get accounting jobs out of state as we were able to do so last year????

User's recommendation: You must always monitor the activity.

Account cancellation

Thumbtack - Account cancellation
Thumbtack cancelled my account due to and unclear policy review that they would not show me. Thumbtack claims that they Gm have concerns about my ability to meet those standards when I have done absolutely nothing but try to develop work. Ive also landed photography leads Within the site and I have people that are inquiring about my photography work.

User's recommendation: It’s a good app but the policies aren’t clear.

You're *** me

Fraud committed on my card on file needed to change to checking account. Your charging me for leads that have stood me up or are playing games. Ive been a pro on thumbtack for almost 10 yrs and its not nearly as friendly

Frustration!

Because nobody is responding to email or text. I keep looping the text message, and there is no response. My emails have gone unanswered. The chat and text contacts do not work. Meanwhile I am losing business because although they are sending me tons of jobs, I cannot bid because this new background check has misinformation. No way to correct.

User's recommendation: I wish I did.
