I decided to use angellist in 2019 after reading an article that listed them as a place for job seekers. I went to the site, set up my profile, followed all site tutorials, and applied to three jobs (legit places I checked). I wanted to fix my profile and my picture (their format wasnt accepting quality although they say to use high resolution).
I suddenly got a cloud fare message when trying to log in. I reached out to them via email and twitter no response. I checked the site later and still couldn't get in. I tried to contact them again via email and Twitter. I later tried again and now it said my account was locked out! Now I'm pissed.
I emailed angellist told them of all the past times I tried to contact them, my account being locked out, and no response. Once I mentioned I was going to escalate this if I don't hear back with solutions, "moderation" responded. This email said my account is suspended, I couldn't get it back, I violated their rules, and do I want to deactivate my account.
I don't know who runs angellist and how they've gotten away with poor service but they need to be forced to do better or fold. I still haven't received an explanation or any response. Everything screams SCAM. My fear is they are selling and using my information at leisure. I heard before they contact past employers without consumer knowledge. This platform is horrible! Stay Away!
