ServiceMagic.Com ServiceMagic Service Magic - Complaints / Reviews / Scam Reports
Lead Generation Service, Fraud, Scam, Dave Reed

This is a Complaint / Review about ServiceMagic.Com ServiceMagic Service Magic.

sales man david reed claims to be able to hook your website for your business to hundreds of other pages and sites and promises that your website will be directly linked to service magics site free of charge as soon as you sign on.

They list only the benificial ratings of companies, and through "direct match" wash there hands of bogus leads. Before you sign up for the service it is promised that they filter leads both coming in and also going to the contractors.

Once your signed on they then claim its just advertizing. Fraud comes to mind.

they claim they do checking and research for licenses in the areas you wish to serve, false claim and to prove it I was able to add Iowa for my line of work who requires contractor licenses for the state, but I wasnt able to add minnesota who does not require any licensing for my line of work.

they offer there so called services in all 50 states of the United States, the goods or promises they make are vigerious 10 point screening. (more like 3 point screening)

What they call a Ten point inspection turns out to be a check for insurance to make it look good and a check on the contractors routing number along with the account numbers.

Another false thing they do is tell you leads are direct match, but in fact they sent that same $30 to $60 lead to roughly 3 customers on average, equals about $180 per lead for them, and a pist off customer that go's with someone else completely do to being bombed with calls.

Injury to my bank account and my reputation is on the line for buying into there sales pitch, empty fraudualant promises.

This company is immoral, unethical, oppressive, unscrupulous; and substantially can injure consumers and contractors alike by mismatching professionals the consumer believes to be qualified, contractor that is slow on work that is having a rough time, by being mismatch and potentially runing there reputations.

End result, out of work contractor that may have been legit for there origanal field, an unhappy customer that has to pay more a second tine to have work done twice, and the people that run ServiceMagic a few dollars richer off this miss fortion of others.

They fail to disclose material fact at the time of sale of profiles to the consumers who later in the system are the contractors, also to the home owner slash consumer that hires these screaned professionals.

they also speak against other lead companies saying how they can't do anything for anyone, (Product disparagement). The whole things built in bad faith.
