Thumbtack sucks big time!

Shout-out to all freelancers - DO NOT FAll FOR THUMBTACK PREDATORY PRACTICES!

I have been Thumbtack pro for a couple of years. After trying to compete with overseas talent - meaning not getting any jobs, I decided to change my email preferences with Thumbtack.

I chose to not receive any notifications. The moment I did that they started to charge me for "automated promotion od my business" - never sending me any info about those charges.

I never knew about the "auto promotion", never send any quotes and never got any jobs.

Now, a couple of months later, when I discovered those charges, they refuse to refund the money the charged without my consent. Even the money that was charged less than 30 days ago (which according to their refund policy should be refundable without questions).

Thumbtack management are predators preying on vulnerable small business owners, who cannot afford legal representation.

Product or Service Mentioned: Thumbtack Leads.

The reason of review: unauthorized payments for non-delivered leads.

Monetary Loss: $245.

Preferred solution: Full refund.

I didn't like: Predatory practices, Scammed me out of 245 dollars, Misleading policies.
