On more than one occasion I have been looking for a professional, gone against my better judgement and entered my information into thumbtack. Huge waste of time.
Despite living in Los Angeles, Thumbtack has told me, 'Sorry, we don't have someone who is doing that in your area,' but they don't hesitate to send me weeks and months of spam afterwards.
As a consumer, I will avoid sites like this and I won't enter my information ever again into anything that requires my contact information before supposedly matching me with a professional. Apparently the site is just as *** from the service provider's end, because I'm reading a lot of reviews from people stating thumbtack charges service providers even if they don't end up getting a job with the person looking to have the work done.
Product or Service Mentioned: Thumbtack Website.
