MyFreeEstimates Complaint - Lead Referral Service - Scam

Review by sherrorized on 2008-06-21
BLOOMINGTON, MINNESOTA -- Stay Away from My Free Estimates.Com They conned my company out of over $800 and refuse to make good on their promises. I signed on with them in April and have received only 1 viable lead. I was told by Tara that if I let her try a few things with my account (adding areas I didn't want) to try and get lead production up, then if it didn't work, she would refund out money. When it didn't work, she hid behind some Jeff guy who told me that I wasn't getting anything back and they didn't have to guarantee anything. That will teach me not to believe what I am told by some slick little salesman.

I have reported them to the Attorney General's office and filed a complaint with the BBB in Minnisota (where they are). We are currently talking to VISA about discontinuing their account.

As a contractor, we were not screened for quality work, or were we even asked anything about our company, so who knows what kind of contractors they are recommending! Stay away!

Did you get any sort of guarantees in writing? Their web pages offer no guarantees. All they are offering is to post contractor names and contact info and nothing else. I don't see a scam here.

It's somewhat like listing in the yellow pages, however, if you were made oral expectations and a promise of a refund, then they should honor such. Deceptive business practices do extend to unwritten sales pitches and I don't blame you for filing said complaints.
