Homeadvisor - What a complete scam
Contracted with a plumber through Homeadvisor.
The plumber was a dud.
He did change the toilet hose properly but the sink he supposedly
cleared the drain on is stopped up even worse. It was so ridiculous that he even said "oh the drain is fine now" while I was looking at
standing water in the bowl!
Then he charged me $245!!!
I paid him just to get him out of my space as fast as possible.
Homeadvisor, please, come on, do a little research before you recommend. What a terrible outfit Homeadvisor turned out to be after all that fancy advertising and faulty promises of representing "pros" OH BROTHER
Thumbtack - Hired plumber, wasn’t licensed
Hired this guy named Chris Halstead, and Thumbtack listed him as licensed, he didn’t know much and couldn’t fix my plumbing. Called the Minnesota Department Of Labor.
And they stated he was an Wasn’t licensed. Had a license that he couldn’t legally work with.
No plumbing code compliance bond, no insurance, considering how much Thumbtack makes off this site, why are they letting these hacks stay on. Think twice and ask for proof that they have a plumbing contractor license and City of Minneapolis plumbers license.
Thumbtack - Bad install on sink
Hired this guy that said he was a plumber and he fixed my sink this way, see picture, called up the Minnesota department of Labor and industry and this guy has a UN licensed plumbers license. They say he shouldn’t be doing jobs on his own. Watch out for these unlicensed hacks.
First American Home Warranty - Scammers !!!!!
First American Home Warranty is scamming consumers out of their money. On 6/7/19, I placed a service request due to a stopped up, leaking sink.
The contractor was extremely unprofessional, and unclogged my sink with a CLOTHES HANGER !!! Further, he refused to fix the leak and stated it was not covered !
Now my sink is leaking more than it was prior to contacting FAHW.
Thumbtack - They refer unlicensed plumbers, electricians, and hvac
This is what a thumbtack handyman did after saying he was a licensed plumber, almost cost people there lives, hooked up gravity water heater to pvc pipe
First American Home Warranty - Scam ... The company is working with contractor to bait and swich .
I have been with First American since year 2000, 19 years. I have very little claims during all these years.
Today I had a leak on my shower that could not stop. I had to close the water main to avoid wasting water. We call for service and they said the soonest they can send somebody is in about 8 hours. I had to stay home and miss work to wait for the plumber.
Plumber comes in and just said the repair is not cover because I tried to fix it myself and I broke the valve and my garbage disposal is not cover because he found a piece of plastic and a penny inside.
Then he tells me that he can fix it but will be 550.00 for the valve and a different amount for the garbage disposal. I said NO and ask him if he can at least put a cover to stop the leak to be able to open the main. He said just put a 1/2 cap on the shower head.
I asked if he can do that, he said NO, because he did not have one in his truck but I could go to Home Depot to buy one and put it on yourself.
We paid a annual fee, a co-payment for somebody come to your house and tell you they can fix it for an extra fee because according to him is not cover.
I reviewed my contract and both are cover. I call customer service, talked to two associates, a level two resolution associate, 4 managers and they can not help.
The last manager Eduardo Ayala told me to call in the morning because was too late and he could not help me. I asked him to get someone to call us in the morning after they do their research and he said they do not call or email outside the center. Nobody can follow up with us we have to follow up with them. In other words I have to start all over again in the morning or simply cancel my 19 year policy and go elsewhere to get the minimum service.
It is very clear, they are scamming people by sending contractors to your home to charge for work that is cover under the service that you are paying anyway. If the company care they should call us on the phone on file. My contract number is 10169160919.
Let's see if they know or want to follow up with a 19 year old customer.

American Home Shield - Total Scam of a Company
I cancelled my American Home Shield policy for which I paid $700 half way through the policy period of one year and just received my refund of $29.35. I had a good laugh. This company is a fraud.
I bought a house and called for plumbing repair of a faucet that was broken. The service person collected $75 and told me that the repair was not covered.
I called for pool equipment repair and told the insurance company what the problem was. I paid the repair person $75 and was told the repair was not covered.
I called for stove repair and told the insurance company and the service company that the repair was for an old induction stove and to make sure that the repair person was capable of repairing the stovetop. I paid the repair person $75 and he told me that he didn't know how to repair induction stovetops.
I called again and American Home Shield sent out another vendor. I paid $75 and was told that the repair couldn't be made.
I called to cancel the policy. They charged $58.33 for an administrative fee, incurred $197.60 somehow for contract costs, prorated the cost of the warranty $414.72 and sent me a check for $29.35.
American Home Shield - RIP OFF RIP OFF CRIMINALS THEIR COMPANY and employees are all criminals
I called in a service request for kitchen sink facuet on Sunday Feb 24,2019. They sent out a company Advantage Home Services LLC Jorge he says with a smile it will take 7-10 business days to get the part for my kitchen sink faucet.
So you're telling me I have no kitchen sink for 3 weeks you what a awesome company great service this is what you will be paying for. Don't think that you are important to them they only want your money. Every time I use them I get so upset I feel like I'm having a heart attack it's terrible. I can't believe this that it will take 3 weeks to get a kitchen sink fixed.
they will absolutely not replace anything only fix can you imagine if my AC went out and they told me that it will take 3 weeks to fix in the summer of Las Vegas we would all die Thanks American Home Shield For not giving a damn about your clients. you should be locked up and the key should be throw away.
