Question DetailsAsked on 9/21/2017

Does Angies List give the contractors member information?

Does Angies List give the contractors the member information or is all contact initiated by the member searching for a contractor? I have had very very bad experiences with contractors I never contacted, contacting me using information from a service like Angies List and do not want to repeat the experience. The contractor actually threatened me because I wouldn't consider using their company.

Angies List says they do not, but several previous similar questions have shown up like yours - but could be a phishing operation too. Here is a previous response from AL Member Services about that:

Course, if you select an AL Deal then the selected vendor is given your contact info so they can contact you about the job - not sure if the info is directly accessible to them or if it goes through a website contact ASP - might be they do not see it.


Because you have been contacted by contractors apparently getting your contact info from other sites as well, sounds like you are on a "sucker list" - used a contractor who sells their contact list or provided personal contact info on a home improvement related website which is selling its info. This will not eliminate it, but may cut it down - get your address on the DMA (Dirt Marketing Association) do-not-junk-mail list, and be sure to put your phone numbers into the do-not-call federal registry. Doing that cut our unsolicted contacts to near zero except for the non-profits and politicians and survey firms, which our congressman evidently are deeply in the pockets of so exempted those types of annoying contacts.
