I received a telemarketing call from a boiler room this morning... Here's the gist of the call:

HIM: "Hello, this is Justin with..." pause (wait I don't want to say who I'm with yet)... "I was wondering if you're able to take on new projects."

ME: "I'm sorry, who are you with?"

HIM: pause... "I'm with Everycontractor.com"

ME: "I'm sorry, but I'm not interested in lead services--please take me off your list."

HIM: CLICK...

I don't appreciate being hung up on... and it motivated me to do a little research about who they are. So the folks at Everycontractor.com can thank Justin for this thread.

Here are some links for anyone who might be curious about their service:

It's sad to think that there's people about who like to take advantage of people in this way. They know full well that a lot on contractors have no work and they give them these promises of massive amounts of work and nothing ever comes of it other than paying out your own pocket. These companys should be shut down as i am seeing more and more of them popping up lately.

I have received those "Are you taking on new projects?" calls.They try to sound like a potential HO at first.

I get them just about every week, too. They have no idea how much damage they're doing to their already questionable reputation by continuing to promote themselves this way. :rolleyes:

Just got a call from them...

Nice gent, apparently they have a few extra jobs in my area as well... I think we've chatted with them before.

However, I checked here, saw the plethora of negative experiences, and explained that based on my fellow contractor's past experiences, I would not be interested.

He said thank you & we parted ways.

I've been scarred by enough lead companies... why add 1 more to the list?

Here is their BBB report, can't believe it's a C with 199 complaints in the last 36 months, that's more than one a week.
