Stay far away from Yodle. They will promise you the world and you will get nothing. I am very sorry I did this. My advice to anyone is to Google search reviews for a company before you make a $1100 mistake that I did. Do you homework/// I didn't and I am very sorry. 1 Replies - Latest reply on 01/18/2013Add reply
This Company Is Pure Fraud
DENVER, COLORADO -- I don't think there is anything good about his company. I think it was created with the intent to defraud thousands of people. I filled out what I thought was an online inquiry form on their website ... read full review4 Replies - Latest reply on 05/18/2009
Yodle or Yodle.com
If you are thinking of using Yodle.com to do your internet advertising please take my advice and DON’T do it. I was a Google Adwords user and our business has done quite well with Adwords. We have been ... read full review3 Replies - Latest reply on 10/09/2012
I too was scammed by Yodle. I was given the whole spiel on their advertisement and it sounded great. I normally do a google search on companies for scams, but they did not want me to get off the phone and said this was a one time offer. I gave an initial authorized payment of $74 to build my web site and they would contact me when it was done so I can proof read it. Three weeks later not a word from them but I found they charged my account $1,500.00 more! Called them several times and the person I needed to talk to was not available. I did not authorize this amount. I had to call my bank and dispute it and close my account. They need to be taken down.
AUSTIN, TEXAS -- Complete FRAUD. The salesperson will tell you anything to get you to sign up and pay them. As soon I paid they demonstrated nothing but utter incompetence. I paid $3K and when it became obvious their scheme was a bait & switch, I requested to cancel via phone, email & letter and they refused, saying that I paid and they would not refund anything. I literally feel like they have stolen my money. They did not provide even 1 valid lead in months - all I got was tons of wrong numbers all day and people looking for different services than my company offers. Let me repeat, not even 1 lead from someone looking for the service my company provides.
RUN, don't walk from these frauds and thieves or sign up at your own peril.
ATLANTA, GEORGIA -- Had signed up for a 3 month trial. Nothing, nothing, nothing came of little marketing they did and no conversations with representative Had no intention of renewing and did not authorize any additional credit card charges. They put through an additional charge on their own.
Have seen many 4 and 5 star reviews and can only think that they are having their employee's relatives give positive reviews, otherwise cannot understand how anyone would think positively of this wretched company.
SPRINGFIELD, MISSOURI -- ***As one business owner to another, if you did sign up with Yodle and had a bad experience please file a report with the BBB, the FTC, and your Attorney General.***
They promise us a full refund of all fees if not satisfied but when we asked for a refund they appear to have carefully covered themselves "legally" so that they wouldn't have to give us any refund.
The tricky "conditions" of the full refund were only clear after the fact and they were not what was implied in all of our "verbal" sales talk.
I was told yesterday by a Yodle representative that "under no circumstances will Yodle EVER refund our money". When I asked for a supervisor I was told that "there was no supervisor to talk to".
Quite a different story than what they told us signing up.
ARIZONA, ARKANSAS -- Do not use YODLE! I had a brief conversation with a sales man and actually decided to go through with it then last minute changed my mind. I was assured my credit card would not be charged. My credit card WAS charged and in fact they charged three hundred more a month and put all three months (we had discussed only paying month to month). Then, they wrote information which was so far from accurate concerning services I provide and basically got everything wrong!!! The other horrible part was they used my PERSONAL ADDRESS all over the internet which is a safety and privacy violation! I immediately called customer service and was assured that the information would be removed within the hour-- they never removed the information.

They are so horrible and unprofessional and such a rip off-- I would highly recommend to stay away.
I have had a great experience with Yodle and my business has benefited from their turnkey solutions. Every month the service pays for itself because we have gotten so many new patients. The dashboard component is extremely helpful in keeping me informed on what is happening with my account and prospective clients. 1 Replies - Latest reply on 10/24/2012Add reply
