  1. I paid a company on AL to do a job for me. Turns out that it was the worst job ever & I asked for my money back. I was refused. After doing some research to file a small claims law suit, I found out that this company is not registered with the state, never has been , and is dong business illegally. This info came directly from the Secretary of State's office in my state. The reviews on AL were fantastic. I am really thinking that the reviews are not valid. How can a business that really is not a business be on AL? The BBB is not much better. I have worked for 2 companies in my life that were the most unethical rip-off's I have known. They both had A+ ratings with the BBB. If you pay your fee, and agree to settle any disputes that you might get, you get a good rating, even though you still continue the same business practices. I quit both jobs because I couldn't work for such people who cheat others. I won't renew AL. You can get the exact review, word for word, on yp listings that have reviews for free. Anytime you say you have honest reviews from honest people, there will always be people & companies who will prove you wrong.

  2. What an amazing little piece of technology! Finally a way to film your kids games and first rides from above where you can see it all. T.J. Johnson seems like a very humble man, which makes it easy to root for this pocket drone!

  3. Angie's list collects fee from members for the privilege of providing content, and collects fees from other members who wish to read that content. If that's not a racket, I don't know what is. Michael Corleone would be envious of that business model.
