I wanted to believe Thumbtack wasn't a scam. Last night, I was all set to close a website design deal.
All of a sudden my client is asking to send me $2,000 extra dollars if I'll only forward money to a third party for him. I blocked his phone numbered and turned down the offer of a nice, "generous," tip for my troubles. This guy was seriously up to no good. I had to report the phone number to the police just in case my phone number comes up connected to something weird.
I am now scared to have myself out there in public. The final straw came when I saw my leads tonight. Thumbtack is clearly sending people fake leads.
I don't think this person filled out the request form so quickly. There have to be bots that are just spitting out requests.
