Owners.com - Deceptive

Real Estate Advertising on Line - Complaint

I was listing our rental property on Zillow and had completed that transaction when I found myself looking at a new screen with 'Do You Want Your Ad To Reach More People?' Something like that. I looked at the options. For a $395 one-time fee, it advertises, Owners. com can get you on several top real estate services online AND give you the MLS access that one normally gets just through Realtors. Seemed like a good price for that.

NOWHERE, before you click 'Sign me up for ____" does it say that this 'one-time fee' actually links your house with a real estate agent and that this agent will be contractually able to get 1/2 of your first month's rental income. I looked and looked for the 'small print', nowhere. I am very glad that I called to ask more about this 'package' and the specifics before I purchased.
As I politely questioned why there was no language on the web pages about the commission the young woman talking to me actually hung up! When I tried to call back the phone just rang and rang.
