Is Bark a scam or a legit company?

Hi Jim,

I work for Bark.com so thought I would weigh in.

Bark.com is a legit company. We are an online market place which connects customers looking for services with professionals who can provide those services and we currently operate in the UK, USA, Ireland, Canada and South Africa.

I would encourage you to check out of Trustpilot reviews at https://www.trustpilot.com/review/bark.com

If you have any questions feel free to contact our friendly team by phone or email: team@bark.com

Bark may or may not be legit, but their barks are very often bogus tire kickers or scammers. They've got a lot of work to do to clean up their act. They need to go straight membership and those needing the work done need to PAY to speak to a professional instead of the professional paying to speak to the bogus tire kicker.

Absolutely scam. Spending $160 in three weeks and all i got was faked numbers to contact with

I would definitely stay away from them. I wasted $300 on this service without any leads at all. Learned a huge lesson. STAY AWAY!

BIG SCAM! STAY AWAY! They do not really provide true phone numbers or contact information. They change customer service policies every time you call. No one gives you the same answer. As a small biz owner, this was a major ripoff. Go use Thumbtack instead!

They're certainly spammers, and it smells like a scam. I'm not foolish enough to try it and find out.

Yes you absolutely are a scam company. Your leads are not genuine, most of them have never even heard of you. Trying to report your to the trading standards company at the moment as you need to be shut down. Most of the people who have been sucked into signing up to you are legitimate, hard working, small businesses trying to make an honest living. You on the other hand are simply vultures making shed loads of money with zero integrity. You are everything that is wrong about the internet. Shame on you,

I cannot comment for legal reasons but as I said in my review it begs the question!

Bark may not be a scam, per se. But their business set-up is questionable at best and designed to generate a lot of money for them with very little input or effort on their part.

Great for them. Not so good for customers or clients.

It's legit. Have generated some good business in the first week. The haters don't know how to sell themselves -- most people don't.

They might be but I signed up for a free trial and was charged $89 and received nothing for my "free" trial. Don't use them and don't give credit card info.

THEY ARE COMPLETE FRAUDSTERS. ALL LEADS FALSE NUMBERS! DO NOT SPEND ANY MONEY WITH THEM. I clicked autorenew off and they still charged my card over £300! Without my permission.

Bad lead quality, stay away. Zero customer service. On the phone they will tell you that you are wasting their time.

Fake "asked me to contact" The approach Bark used doesn't work. They have no way to remove bogus tire kickers. In 2018 it seemed to work reasonably well I won 50% of my leads, client reviews were mostly 5's and I was awarded the "Bark certificate of excellence" But in the second half of 2019 I won 1 out of 13 (all but 1 of the 13 never responded). Sometimes in 2019 they began adding "Client has asked you to contact them." This is an outright LIE... FRAUD!

Yes, this is a legit company. The leads are not seriously looking

Helpful (0)

Based on my experience it's a company that generates false leads.

Helpful (0)

Not a scam. NOT A SCAM. Leads are genuine. I have contacted, even met some of them, They are rude and selfish people.

Total scam! RUN! This is the worst company I have ever had the misfortune of dealing with and that says a lot considering how many terrible businesses are currently in the market place!
