Question DetailsAsked on 4/18/2014

Why does Angies List call contractors “licensed” when they are not? Part 4

Make the company prove otherwise instead of making Angies List subscribers suffer the consequences if the company lies to Angies List (or is “in progress” to be licensed).

When I wrote to Angies List that a highly rated handyman, William Fernandez, was listed as licensed even though CSLB said his license was expired, Amanda W wrote back to thank me “for bringing this to our attention.” It did make sense that Angies List can’t keep track of changes in status for every listing on the site, and, eventually, his listing was removed. (His license is still listed as expired on the CSLB site.)

Swiss Handyman remained listed on Angies List as licensed long after I complained that that their license has been suspended “for failure to comply with Workers Comp” since 10/27/2013. Finally, I see, the company has been reinstated by CSLB and is legal again. But I wouldn’t have known when they were legal and when they weren’t if I had relied on Angies List instead of looking them up repeatedly.
