My Free Estimates.com Complaint - My Free Estimates. com Beware Contractors They are Scammers
Well it all starts out fine by some slick salesman calling you to tell you
how the service from My Free Estimates can increase your business.
Well being in an economic downturn what contractor would not want to increase their business right?
So you get onboard with them and give them your credit card number, but what you don't know is that they are all laughing at you over at the My Free Estimates.com office and telling each other how they just got another poor schmuk to sign up for their lead service.
Now that they have your credit card number you have given them a license to steal and that's exactly what they do. First of all they sell their leads to many contractors not just a few as they tell you.
Next when you call the people to set up an appointment, even after you got the lead a minute before guess what? You are about the 10th contractor that has called. Half of the time the people don't know what you are talking about. They never requested a quote on anything.
When you don't purchase any leads that they send you for awhile well they start to email you leads that you did not even want. When you call and complain they tell you that they are trying to promote your business and since they already sent them to you well there is nothing they can do. There is something that they can do and believe me they do it.
They start to bomb your email with unwanted leads until you block them from sending any more. Then they swipe some more money from your credit card account just for some more good laughs. But there is a saying " He who laughs last laughs the loudest " because what I did is to dispute those charges on my credit card and cancel the card as well so they could not make any more unauthorized charges to it.
You think I am smart don't you? Well I am not ! Know why? Well after spending thousands of dollars with them guess how many jobs I came up with? That's right NADA Nothing Zip ! But after all they did promote business and increase busness. Not mine though......theirs.
So people listen up ! Take my advice! Don't let it happen to you! I have tried several of these types of lead companies and the only ones that make any money are the lead companies.
We all know times are tough, and they know it too which is what allows them to continue to prey on good unsuspecting people. Do yourself a favor and don't fall victim too.
